I used very tight strings to bring it in any shape I wished.

I am sorry to bump a thread, but I just realised this gem went unnoticed!

Very nicely done, I wish I had the money to buy Magics, I still want to make my 80 tile Magic. :(

Do you mean a 40x2 magic or strung differently?

I think you would make it by following the regular 8string magic proceedure, on the 16 tile{ http://twistypuzzles.com/articles/magic ... ster.shtml } the 3,4,7,8 steps would be multiple strings and more.

Basically you would just follow the basic 8string technique but extended farther out. Hope this makes any sense, I would love to make one, but the cost to make one would be around $130 to $140, if you buy from cubesmith. Plus you would need a design.
It would be cheaper to buy 10 magics off eBay or something.

Then you could just remove the strings connecting 2 tiles in a loop (So 4 strings?) per magic, and then just make the magic straight, and connect them even further. Of course you wouldn't have any picture inside, but never the less doing this with 10 magics would yield a 80 tile magic.

You would need 5 magics to make a 40 tile magic...

I have offered to make a Magic this big for someone for free, all they need to do is send me the tiles.

I would just string them all next to each other so it would solve just like 10 magics.

To make a 40-tile magic, you still need to do some serious calculations (or continuous rigorous testing like I did with the Memory Cube) before constructing such a big magic.

You don't want to have some paper tiles wrongly oriented, right? And in this case, stringing is the "easy" part!

It's 40 tiles long, but it's two tiles wide. Hence it's 80 tiles.
