True, but that doesn't necessarily mean one couldn't unknowingly print a copy. It is an obscure picture, and I don't think one has been announced on this forum before (unless my poor memory fails me again).

i believe that is Oskar's Twist and Slide, not a circle 2x2.

This is not my next puzzle, nor the one after or probably the one after, but it's definitely 4th in the line at most for now, and I could only have made it thanks to Solidworks, not autocad which is why I waited this long to make it... any guesses ?

@RubiksFreakGreg, I think that its the dodecahedral equivalent of a 6x6, between a giga and teraminx.

What is the dodecahedral equivalent of a 6x6? It doesn't seem like that monstrosity would turn.

@RubixFreakGreg- Based on the number of layers in one direction versus the other, I would say... 5x6xN?

Today, the 25th of August 2011, and after spending months manufacturing/constructing 25(!)
different prototypes using various materials, the final stable prototype of Alien Tech was made.

I cannot tell exactly when it will be publicly released, but there will be a full working version
(with a nice theme) *definitely* before next year.

As a puzzle, it is not that hard (at least not yet!), but as a mechanism, it is the best project
I have ever done in my entire life. Get ready for the "invasion".

Tom, people are going to hope for a Void Master Pentultimate or Void Pentultimate when it isn't ^^

I do have a question though: why didn't you use vmech on the Pent mech ?

Neither of those, it's definitely not a big chop as it only has 11 shells

Hmm very interesting. I don't think I'm a good guesser but it looks like it has dodecahedral symmetry and It looks like it has pyraminx crystal pieces and master pentultimate pieces and tips that turn. ( not trivial tips though.)

I have a very straight forward and logical Pyraminx mod in mind. I wonder why it has never been done before... :) In my head it is really classic haha

Um... the Pyrahexaminx, where the 6 edges match up to the 6 faces of a cube (e.g. reverse master pyramorphinx)?

This may have already been done, but that's the first "straightforward" Pyraminx mod idea I could think of.

Goomba, nope. I am pretty sure I know what mods that have been done. This one havent.
This is not it, but why have noone reversed thed tetrahedron shape so the centers becomes tips and vice versa?

Because the dual of a tetrahedron is a tetrahedron? :lol:

That "could" work with a pyraminx though so can't wait to see it!

hint pictures are always more fun so here you go. This is a picture of the core of my puzzle and to help a bit the blue axis is what I would call the vertical axis and it intersects with the red point.

na the snub dodecahedron has 92 faces that would be a really crazy core

If it has 32 axis I say a master Tuttminx. However I can't even figure out how many it has from the picture.

The attached file is a Minecraft world with one of each of the parts for the next puzzle I am making. (excluding one piece type that is just a mirror image of one of the parts) If you don't own the game, there are plenty of free map viewers and map editors that you can use to view the world. Feel free to PM me if you think you know what the puzzle is.

A transformation from a Crazy 3x3x3 Cube. The puzzle has been made before, but not in this way.
