Some (= many serious readers here
) will remember this post when Jeremy Isenburg (= member Jerm) made his first puzzle: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=25241&p=298631#p298631 AND
his very first post.
My name is Jeremy Isenburg, but you can call me Jerm. I am 17 years old working on graduating high school
. I have just recently started using Solidworks, and about two weeks in I got to work on a 4x6x8 cuboid! I ended up printing it just after creating it and I could not be more proud. It functions very nice, and gets even more stable once scrambled. When it is in a solved state, care needs to be taken on the outer two layers on the 4x6 side, and the out-most layer on the 4x8 side. Once I got used to it though It turns fantastic! And when scrambled they don't even effect anything as larger pieces help stabilize the smaller pieces.
Yesterday his Version 2 of this puzzle arrived at my home:
Jeremy has made it for me.
He told me that he is very busy at school and his brother helped him to dye it.
Furthermore, Shapeways caused some problems to him as well.
I really hope that he can contently smile looking at his puzzle that crossed the Atlantic safely.
It is a fantastic puzzle
, but it looks quite terrifying.
I had to promise to my wife that I'll wait for long and dark evenings until I'm going to scramble and solve it.
It is my most advanced cuboid, in any case.
Two days earlier the Praxis Cube from cublem
had arrived. Here they are together:
Three different views on a scrambled Praxis Cube:
As you can see, I still appreciate casted puzzles and advanced 3D printed puzzles as well.
The Praxis Cube is shapeshifting pretty badly, too.
After a simple [1,1] commutator:
I'm not sure if there is consensus about the definition of "rare". (Tony once said: a rare puzzle is one that is only lightly cooked
For me, both are precious additions to my collection. And rare by my standards as well.
EDIT: Thanks to rayray_2561 I could make my quote of Tony correct.
