This thread is solely devoted to one question: if you could mass produce any shapeway (or handmade) puzzle, what would it be? Me, probobly the 17x17, multidodechahedron, or master brillic

Definitely a Super X or Dino 3x3x3. I love hybrid puzzles and vertex-turning cubes so these are perfect for me, but not the price :(

Mine would be the 4x4x2 since Ola has perfect that design and master pyraminx

17x17x17 would cost a boat-load, turn poorly, cater only to an extremely tiny niche market, and they'd never recoup the cost of the production molds for the literally 1000s of parts that make up every puzzle.

I vote mixup Cube by Oskar. It turns like a 3x3x3, but then you learn that the inner slices also do 45 degrees. It shouldn't be too hard to produce a working mech out of an inner 2x2x2 combined with rails that hold the edges/centers in place. More exotic puzzles have been successfully produced.

Let me add anything with Icosahedral geometry (20 virtual or real axes). The Tetrahedron (Pyraminx), Cube, Octahedron (Skewb Diamond, FTO), and Dodecahedron (Megaminx) geometries have been out for decades. That leaves one more face-turning platonic solid left: Icosahedron!

MF8 produced a prototype of this puzzle last year, as a deeper cut corner-cutting Dodecahedron, but never released it.

A face turning rombic dodecahedron should be fine. Toru or Rua.
