Hey forum, this is my puzzle titled "Ultra-X" It is a super x, shape modded into a cuboctahedron, then has an extra functionality added. The puzzle has 23 different places where it can turn. This puzzle is a full print and is stabilized with 96 magnets. The puzzle has 14 different color stickers, which were cut by Josh B. I would like to sell this puzzle, but I dont want to go through ebay, so anyone who is interested in buying the puzzle can send me a pm, and maybe we can work something out.

turn type 1


turn type 2


turn type 3

I love how you just added super edges! :mrgreen: (or whatever you want to call them)

How many external and total parts does it have?

Very nice, but I would like to see a none cuboctahedron super x cube (Correct me if there is one).

Like a 4x4 with an X and cuts where you truncated the cube.

I had something else in my mind, try Imagine a full cube without the truncated parts..
it will become a 4x4 super X cube, and this is what I would like to see.

but still Amazing puzzle.

Wow, just wow. I think this might have the most combinations of different cuts out of any puzzle ever made! Great work.

I'd say this is the most complex "combination" puzzle ever made. Excellent achievement.

That would be OLZ's puzzle! It was not a success, but still worked. maybe the magents is the way to go, to make this kind of puzzle stable..

I agree 100% with Garrett.

Thanks for the kind words everyone, I'm very pleased with the warm response to this puzzle. AS for the "most complicated combination puzzle ever" title, It doesn't really matter if it is or isn't, because I have insider information, and know that it will be knocked off its pedestal soon!

Additionally, the First post has been updated with a video.

hope you all enjoy!

the colors you chose for the pics are not the most flattering to me. but this puzzle is quite an accomplishment, considering how unstable the super x can be. A+ my friend!

I want to add that I like the colors very much as well at the stickering job. It would be nice if you show the other sides to tho.

I extremely love this puzzle, but I do have to say I don't agree with all those who thinkthis is the most complex combination puzzlle yet.
I guess you said this because it is face + vertex + edge turning, but technically, it isn't, it's only face and vertex turning. If it was a cube, It would be edge turning, but here the edges are cuboctahedron corners. Sorry :P

Anyways, I really, really love it :mrgreen: !

- Greg :D
