I have happily received my Circle Dino cube design! I do NOT plan to dye this or sticker this. Ask any questions :D

So basically certain vertices are slice move only and others turn with the corner? Interesting.

Is that slice move the only move that can be done? What prevents the tip part from turning too?

Great Design. Reminds me the Mosaic Cube in some way or others.

Very very interesting puzzle. I very much like it. shame you aren't going to sticker it though, not much of a puzzle without them.

Ok... I will. You considered this finished as is? Or are there plans other then dyeing or stickering? Any chance we can see a video?

Looks nice... just doesn't look finished,

Ah, looks like my signature is no longer accurate and the circle dino did not get the best of you. Why not sticker, though? Then again, I bet that there are some forum members who would be willing to help...(hint hint hint).

[EDIT]: My signature used to contain a quote from the IRC chatroom, where NXTGen said "I'm going to go make a circle dino", to which I replied "be careful, the dinos are dangerous", then he left the chatroom and I said "looks like the dinos got him"

You do not have mercy with a poor moderator, do you?

Why!!!

Anyhow, I would suggest renaming this puzzle, seeing as it isn't a Circle Dino Cube. The 'Circle' cuts are too deep on this, and I view this puzzle as a bandaged Compy Dino Cube, rather than a Circle Dino Cube, which should have much shallower circle cuts.

Very interesting, but I have to ask (you said ask any questions...):

So what really scrambles on this puzzle? The edge pieces don't move. The three edge "wings" only move in their own three piece circuits. I can kind of see some small pieces in between, I suppose these move but I haven't analyzed how.

As for not stickering, I have moved this thread to the Puzzle Building forum as it doesn't yet seem to be a complete puzzle.

Interesting puzzle!
I would like to see a video, because it is not clear to me what moves...

And one more thing:
I hate seeing puzzles without stickers!
So if you change your mind I gladly design stickers for your puzzle free.
(The stickers and the posting fee would only be 6-8 Euro.)
