Hello guys,
I've just added the Master Square-1 to my Shapeways Shop for purchase. Details about ordering can be found there.

What if we take WitEden SQ224 puzzle, see
http://www.hknowstore.com/locale/en-US/item.aspx?corpname=nowstore&itemid=9695c8d7-d892-4548-b7de-79fa91195435

and swap inner and outer layers, will we get Master Square-1?

Does it mean that Master Square-1 and WitEden_SQ224 are
the same from solving point of view?

No. Your analogy is good, but the Master square-1 is based on a hexadecagonal prism, NOT a dodecagonal prism. Therefore, they would scramble completely differently. In fact, the puzzle you suggested would behave exactly like the Square-2XP.

I can only advise to order one.
An amazing mechanism. And it really works nicely!
