Ray Bruner recently finished a truly amazing puzzle. A higher order Tuttminx- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8DtbR_iJ-I . He is calling it the Rayminx or Giga Tuttminx.
The guy has only just started his channel and I am curious to see what else he comes up with. I strongly recommend you subscribe and give him encouragement.

It is a great idea and I sincerely hope this puzzle becomes available!

Why are there so many dislikes on his videos? This puzzle is amazing! Great work, Ray.

Man, this is amazing.

I've never heard of this guy before. He should really come on the forum if he hasn't already.

I'm going to share this on the speedsolving.com forum.

Absolutely and he should be here soon. He just told me that the puzzle is NOT 3D printed. He cast the pieces. Hopefully he can explain himself pretty soon.

It's about time that puzzle was made! You might try designing one for 3D printing, which would result in a lighter, more stable puzzle.

Great work, nevertheless.

Good morning everyone, I have an account now :) .
Thanks to everyone who has shown an interest so far.

Ok so to cover a couple of things. This is not 3d printed. each of the 756 parts are hand made.
(but there are only 690 floating parts? and 32 centers) Right. and 32 caps and the core is 2 parts as well. so 756.

My first prototype was started without a computer model. It did work but was so horrible I wouldnt show it to anyone.
The second prototype was designed on the computer, I had a set of masters printed, then cast enought parts to find out It needed some changes if it was going to stay together.

What you see here is my third attempt. It still needs a few very small tweeks but is totaly functional as is.
The loose corner parts and sticky sides are from over sanding :( this is not a design flaw, just a prototype issue.

I have spent a year creating the three different versions. The last has taken about 5 months to build and then another 3 full days painting. (ya I didn't use stickers-its nail polish)

I want to thank Tony Fisher for everything he has done so far, It has been a huge help getting the puzzle out there. :scrambled:

Ray Bruner.

Amazing work Ray, sanding 756 parts must have been mind numbing.Is this your first twisty puzzle? Why did you choose this very complex puzzle?

Thanks darryl and traiphum.

To everyone talking about how sloppy and hard turning the puzzle is.
This is all hand made. It is not printed and it is very hard to get all the pieces exact on a hand made prototype. The mechanics are good and a production model will turn smoth and be much tighter.

As I sand down the sticky spots I will get the puzzle tighter and it will turn better. This is something that will happen over the next few months as I play with it.

From the small crowd of us who have cast a higher order puzzle I can say we very well appreciate the work involved and how amazing it is to get moving results at all with such a large endeavor.

Great work and welcome!

Ray, perhaps you could add some photos. I am sure people would like to see some pics and Andreas can then add your puzzle to the museum. You can either attach them to your posts or hotlink to them. Either way reduce them down a bit so they fit to the forum and reduce download time.

I second everything Tony said but want to add:
I consider a size of 1024*768 for the image as good compromise between fast download time and suitability for the museum.

Can you choose a definitive name for this amazing achievement?
Can you measure the edge length and its weight?

Andreas

Am I reading this correctly? Is this ALREADY slated for mass production? You funding this production yourself? Again... WOW!!!

Casting a puzzle of this size is a monumental task! Very impressive. I'd be really surprised if this was your strategy for prototyping a design scheduled for production though. 3D printing would be less work, probably less expensive, and give you better information about the efficacy of the design.

The Puzzle dimentions are Height 140.9 mm Width 146.8 mm Lenght 144.4 mm. I don't have a guess on the weight though. It is about the same as the older Teraminx.

I did not build the prototype as a model for mass prodution. I would have 3D printed it for that. Cost would be insane though. I built it because I wanted one. Now I would love to have one that was injection molded. I will have to wait and see if someone is willing to take the chance on putting up that kind of money to make this available to everyone.

I wanna repost, since last time I was in a bit of a hurry. I had to comment, cuz this puzzle is really amazing! the amount of work involved must have been insane! Very impressive!

I have to say that it really bugs me to see that you painted it. That nailpolish will chip. well it can be reapplied I guess :roll:

But what I would personally love to see, is that you died this puzzle black and then used machine cut stickers and stickered the whole thing in 32 different colors. (I know some of the sticker sellers do have that many colors).

That was my cardboard concept model. That was made a year ago by me. I will take a picture of the two of them together so you can see I did not rip anyone off. I thought it up, I built it and here it is.

Please don't tell me that's a fully functional cardboard model. I'm just not ready for that.

Secondly, I'm really impressed that it's hand-cast. Cast puzzles are pretty rare nowadays, as most people either fully hand-mod or 3D print. Casting is a good compromise :)

No, it is just a cardboard model of what I was hoping the finished puzzle would be. It didn't turn out as nice as I wanted but it did turn out :D
