Okay, so you may have noticed I was reluctant to talk about the practicality of an non-Axis'd Praxis cube.

Truth is its been ready since mid December, but before I optimized the design I axis-ified it and fell in love. that became the Praxis cube.

So your persistence has pushed me to jump on it and optimize it this morning....
Thanks for these, Drew. I look forward very much to seeing the Rex Cube and Praxis Cube arriving at bedardpuzzles.com.

Best way to think about it is that a Skewb Diamond is a 2 layer face turning octahedron. A Face Turning Octahedron is a 3 layer face turning octahedron, making it a Master Skewb Diamond.


Thanks... that helps alot.

That's a good question! 8-)
I guess it would be like a face-turning octahedron but with curvy cuts? :P


Ok... I've answered my own question. Here is what the Rex Octahedron looks like... it and everything between it and the Rex Cube.

Yes, its a face-turning octahedron but with curvy cuts.

Thanks... I made the frames in POV-Ray and put them together into a gif file using Animation Shop. If you'd like I can share the POV-Ray file used to make the images.

The octahedral version looks very good too! And now that we know how fast Drew works, I think both the cubical and octahedral one will be made within 2 weeks.
