Traiphum has a version called "octaphobic". It's pillowed though. This version also looks very nice. :D How big is it? can you post a picture of it next to a 3x3?

Claus that's Mega Ultra ridiculous. It looks huge! Very cool. Did you print the mechanism too or is it extensions on an existing puzzle?

Superb! I assume it's extensions on an 8x8 cube?
So many puzzles! Just not enough money!!! :(

Claus, I would love to see a video of this one!
You must keep that printer busy...
I bet it would be a great sculpture when scrambled.

Claus, after doing my Megamorphix (4x) and Ultramorphix (5x) I tip my hat to your efforts at doing this puzzle. At least you did not have to sticker this beast! I would estimate that this puzzle must be about 280mm along an edge :shock: I would love to see a video as well.

I would call it "Doesnt matter what its name is as long it is extreme"-morphix.

Beyond that I am in doubt.
Usually I ignore whether puzzles are pillowed or not.
Since there already is a tetrahedral 8x8x8 in the museum I won't add this. If you want me to rethink my decision I need images with perfectly white background.

I can be cruel. I know.

I have the opportunity to print in 8 different colors plus nature ivory.

The edge length is 305 mm. The weight is 1139 grams.

One big corner piece is only 24 grams.

The youtube video you can watch here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xauWIJgD4pc

Claus. either you have shrunk to the size of a Hobbit or you weren't telling lies when you said the edge length is 305mm. I thought I was over-estimating when I said it was 280mm :lol: Now ... scramble and solve it!

That is amazing. Thanks for the video. Claus, I can only imagine your collection must be either the most unique in the world, or among the most unique!

As the value of gold went down Claus thought he'd invest some of his to have this produced. Now it will drop more.

Because I got some questions about the building process here a few new pictures.

Contrary to what Gus made by his Morphix, I cut only four corner pieces a little bit. My technic raise up the printing costs and make the puzzle bigger. But it is easier to assemble.
