I present my new puzzle: Square-3D - this is my most unique puzzle game! This is a combination of Square and 2*2 (edge ​​50mm).
I added a "3D" to make it clear - this is a fully volumetric puzzle as opposed to Square-1.

Unfortunately I set a little error with the angles and I have actually turned out not complete Square.
I played with it and decided that I will not fix - A very interesting puzzle:
5 thin triangles = 180 degrees (Square-1: 6 thin triangles = 180 degrees),
i.e. 1 thin triangle 36dg 1 thick triangle 54dg (Square-1 30dg and 60dg)

I've twisted this cube, it surprised me a lot ... New movements are under the most unexpected angles ...

Enjoy!

Is this a TP mech puzzle or does it use magnets and a spherical metal core?

This is amazing!

The moment I saw it, I realised how you made this (at least, I think I do).
And I'm so jealous I didn't come up with this earlier! :-)

What a wonderful little puzzle Evgeniy! It reminds me of the CT AI Bandaged 444 (although everything seems to these days :lol: ), it must be fun to unjumble.

Hah! I only now realise I once made a puzzle that looks quite similar: viewtopic.php?t=7703
But that one is broken, so I forgot I made it.

Oh wow!
What a superb mod!
Is that an "overlapping" Square-1?

Congratulations -- this has always been my dream puzzle and you've finally found a way to make it happen.

I must ask though, has it got a magnetic or traditional mechanism?

I'm sure it's got rounded middle layer and extended pieces from top and bottom layer.
So it's a standard Sq-1 mechanism, not magnets...

I have a question.

Let's say you scramble it with moves from the Square-1. Then, you scramble it like a 2x2x2 Rubik's Cube. Do you need to get it back into Square-1 "form" to solve it?

Thank You. good comment.
This puzzle allows very unusual turns, we get very hard jumbling!
I tried to count the number of axes-rotation, I found 18 of them!
I am weak in Puzzle-theory :( may be others Puzzle-Guru can check it out?

Burgo, Vadim
sorry. this is not MOD/Bandaged/Overlaping SQ-1. I do not hide a middle layer, but is completely removed it ...
so we have complete freedom of movement without restriction ;)

Thomas, I did not see your puzzle, but I knew about the puzzle Anthony Greenhill: http://www.twistypuzzles.com/cgi-bin/pu ... i?pkey=915
your puzzle simple 2*2 MOD, but it inspired me to make a Square-3D.
Thank You :)

Yes. I agree with you - this is a good way;)
Jumble-picture too alarming, but to restore the cubic form is very simple!
(I was reminded Cube24 - there is also very easy to restore the original appearance)
after that you can easily solve it, if you know the formula from the SQ-1
(but my puzzle a slightly modified SQ, so not all fit the formula)

Nice Work. I'm realy impressed if it has a real mechanism.
But why are you not answering these questions ? Do you want to keep the mechanism a secret ? A Yes or No would be enough for us :D
I think people like Ben who also tried to make this puzzle work would be disapointed if its a steel core with magnets.

I can understand that. But saying it is a magnetic mechanism or not would only reveal the secret if it is a magnetic mechanism. Ok it could still be a mix of magnetic and mechanic mechanism. No one could figure out the mechanism from just that information.
Since I think that I have seen a steelcore in your video that's what I think until you prove me wrong.
Sorry I don't want to be negative or something, I'm just curious ^^
