 Post subject: Tom Z's Fully Functional 4x4x6
PostPosted: Tue Dec 20, 2011 2:09 am 
Hello everybody. I don't know if this is the section for it, but I received a FF 4x4x6 from Tom Z. This video is an unboxing that I wasn't supposed to unbox. I was Christmas cheating and almost got busted!!! This puzzle is AWESOME and I feel privilege to own one =) Enjoy!

Welcome to the forum! :)
Thanks for sharing your video with us.
I have got the same puzzle too and I share your high opinion about it.

Because you asked in the Who's Who thread, I want to give you my two cents:
You are very welcome to share you videos and website with the TP forum.
In this specific case you could have looked for the existing thread http://twistypuzzles.com/forum/viewtopi ... 15&t=21601 (e.g. going to the member TomZ and searched his posts for 4x4x6).
If you had posted there, it would have been a `bump`. You should not bump old topics just saying "how nice" :wink:
It is OK, though, bumping an old topic if your post really contributes something, like your video.
In my opinion, it is better keeping things together than opening a new thread.
I think that Benf207 has expressed the same in the Who's Who thread.

Good luck and have fun at the forum! :)

Of course he is a genius. Have you got the Multidodeca? I have broken in mine while still waiting for the stickers. Without lubrication and fine tuning of screw tension it turns amazingly. The gap to the Guhong is closing :lol: It is the most complex of TomZ's dodecahedron puzzles but the best turning!

Regarding Cuboids: I can probably not avoid adding the 4x5x6 to my 3x4x5 and 4x4x6 to complete the TomZ cuboid family. :) I was ordering it already at the day with the 15% off action, but I got angry about not being able to pay the Euro price due :( (I got full refund for the Multi-D USD / Euro difference, though.)

I'm very jealous, you have a good girlfriend ( even though I may get a 4x4x2 for my birthday in march :P). Also I like the video content.

You should be ashamed of yourself opening your presents early! Santa is so NOT going to put you on the nice list this year!

Darned bug has stolen all my boxes that have come in this week and wrapped them. I have a vague idea of what is in those presents because I bought them, but one or two, I haven't got a clue on. And I'm waiting.

A very NAUGHTY BOY you have been. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Sorry for the slight bump but I just received my TomZ FF 4x4x6 from shapeways and finished dying and assembling it today and I love it! It took very little breaking in, and I haven't even lubed it yet as I am still waiting on my stickers from Cubesmith, but already it turns wonderfully! I can't wait to get it stickered so I can solve it :)

Many thanks to TomZ for designing an awesome puzzle!

May I ask where you find the Cubesmith 4x4x6 stickers packet ?

Sadly they don't have a 4x4x6 set, but the cubies are the same size as on a regular 4x4x4, so I just ordered 2 sets of 4x4x4 stickers. I'm sure I'll end up needing the extra ones for something anyway :)

Clever, I do think TomZ 4x4x6 is interesting and a brilliant puzzle. Enjoy !
