Hi Twisty Puzzles fans,

Dino Pent is a corner-turning and top-face-turning pentagonal prism. The inspiration for this puzzle came from an idea by Tianyu Lu.

Watch the YouTube video.
Buy the puzzle at my Shapeways Shop.
Read more at the Shapeways Forum.
Check out the photos below.

Enjoy!

Oskar

well done oskar,

Do you ever lube your cubes so they will turn better or do you just never solve with them?

Thank you for sharing

Is it possible to make turns without any jumbling? It looks like the triangle that turns could be made equilateral by increasing the height of the puzzle. I feel like this might have been your original goal though.

The angles between faces will always be wrong, no matter how tall the puzzle is.

Interesting. I would've never thought of it jumbling. Very cool.
