Finnaly I'm ready with my own first 3D printed puzzle.
It is just an extension of the mini ES 2x2x2 cube.

The Idea came from an image I have found on the internet. It is the same image, just it was not a puzzle, it was made from paper.

I have downloaded the images, and ask one of my costumers (Grégoire Pfennig aka RubixFreakGreg on TP forum) to design the extension pieces for me.

Finally I ordered the pieces from Shapeways and made the stickers.
Before stickering the pieces I have used some sanding paper, and also I have polished the pieces.

And the result is this:

I hope you like it.

Yay! I'm so happy the extensions fit this nicely :)

This puzzle must be really fun to solve 8-)

And last, but not least: I've never seen such amzing stickering. It looks like a painted puzzle!!!

If you can sell it, do I get a discount? :mrgreen:

Could you upload a video, please? :D

I thought it will be hard, but it only took me 1-1,5 hours to polish them.

We can't say the world has faces, but the 6 corners of the world coul be Europe, Asia, Africe, Oceania, America, Antarctica

And please don't make this into an Franco-Anglo-American debate where some consider america as 2 continents or antarctica as 0 continent :lol:

Did you extend the 2x2 pieces and then cut down or did you start with a larger 2x2?

I have received the permission from the designer of the original artwork to sell it.
So, as soon as I can open my shapeways shop, the puzzle will be available.

I don't mean to nag, but it's a normal octahedron crossed with an inverted rhombic dodecahedron :wink:

Finally I was able to open my Shapeways shop:

So now you can buy the puzzle there, and the stickers from me directly.

If you would put it up for sale as all 8 of them in one part that would save a buyer 10,50 dollar, because shapeways asks 1,50 startup costs for every print.

I'm sorry but he can't, I had a virus on that day and had to restore the memory to the day before. So I lost all the files. I could redesign, but i'm not sure it would be exactly the same and therfors the stickers would have to be redone.

As the designer i'll just tell you ha barely put markup on the parts, so 40$ is a really acceptable price for such a beautiful puzzle!
