I was going to wait till it was stickered but there's a delay with my stickers and I probably won't get them for 2-3 weeks - I can tidy up the edges while I'm waiting.

I'll be using 8 different colours for the triangular faces with top and bottom being the same colour.

I'll post the build details and a video when it's stickered.

It looks perfect! A little sanding here and there and it would look like a production puzzle!

That is so neatly done. The planes and cuts are so clean it looks more like a card mock-up than an actual puzzle. This is going to look superb stickered and finished!

Is that just three different types of modified piece? That would make taking moulds and reproducing a few of these relatively easy.......

I have used pewter grey and silver at either ends of my prism mods. I know that they don't NEED to be different colours, but these two are similar enough, but different enough to work well to obviously distinguish the ends as "ends" rather than sides.

Either way, it will look great, congratulations. I look forward to finished pics.

I love these shape-shifting skewb mods.

Fantastic!

If you could change the dimensions a little, you could sticker it like the Freedom Tower, to keep it in line with your Skewb House. :-)

That would be SOME shapehifter...

...might be a little costly to cast in resin.

to be honest I like the look of all these new designs for puzzles, but I can't stand shape shifters, I much rather worry about color swapping than shape and color.

Looks great though!

Amazing accuracy with the geometry. I wish I could get the angles that precise on my puzzles.

Thanks for the comments.

Yes, three type of extension. I have been thinking of casting but I haven't done any moulding as yet so I am still daunted. I'm undecided between selling or keeping as masters.
