I needed a break from casting and decided to cross this one off my build list.
This puzzle is a MADMAN when it’s scrambled! I’m trying to decide if I should bother stickering it.

What do you think?

Seems a shame to leave it unstickered after taking it this far.

Even if it's stickered with all one colour, it's still going to look excellent.

I swear, when I just scrolled through those pictures, I thought they were just designs on a computer. Then I noticed some plastic sheet break lines and figured out it was real. :D

Amazing. Yes, do sticker it. It might even make it easier to solve because you could start solving for colors instead of looking for the right shapes. It would be a lot of work though. Hmm, maybe you should just go back to casting? :wink:

I knew it was only a matter of time before this was made. It looks even more amazing in white. Great job. I can't wait to see it stickered and or scrambled.

Thank you all for the compliments. I have decided to sticker this puzzle (after one more run through the sander). Someone out there was nice enough to offer to cut them for me. :)

When it's ready, I'll post some pics and a video of it stickered and scrambled. In the meantime, here are a few progress pics.

Do you have a catchier name for it when I have it in the prelims for the PotY award?

If you were to sticker it with something sparkly/shiny, it could look like a gemstone!

Very wonderful puzzle! Part of me wants to see scrambled pics, but the other part of me is afraid of seeing scrambled pics. :lol:

It would look even more like a gemstone if he further truncates the shape as Hidetoshi did.
