Dear TP fam,

I am quite the cuboid fanatic, and I take joy in them more than any other type of puzzle. The issue is, is I do not own relatively that many so I have decided to funnel all of my puzzle money into purchasing more cuboids, and I want to document my progress. I know there is not one person out there who cares, but the reason for me doing this is to, from the help of you guys, gain a sense of what kind of cuboids are attainable and what not. and to also encourage builders and stores to produce more cuboids. :D

Heres my collection it is as it stands:

-Red is for cuboids I don't think I am able to obtain
-Green indicates ones that are possible for me to purchase slash make
-Yellow just means I THINK I know a way to build my own

If any of you are in touch with all the latest cuboid news, or just recognize I made a mistake in my little color coded system here then please let me know. Any help slash donations would be great. :P

Any cuboid puzzles not included in my happy little grid system (like 2x4x6, 3x5x6, etc.) are still welcome, I just do not have place for them yet!

I will be updating regularly! Thank you much!

I recently made a list of cuboids between 1-9 layers that haven't been built yet, so you can see which ones still need to be made:

Hi,

If you haven't already seen it, you might be interested in the cuboids table I maintain at my website here:
http://home.comcast.net/~stegmann/rearrangement.htm#cuboids

I try to keep it fairly up to date - it notes which cuboids are commercially available and which are available via shapeways, with links to the Twisty Forums postings where a cuboid was first discussed.

You also might be interested in Kevin's blog post here:

Good luck in your quest!
