Looks great, but it looks so perfect, that it looks casted. I thought you quit casting though. What happened?

This is exactly the same one made by the.drizzle. I *obtained* the milled bits and assembled.

Looks beautiful, Taylor! Your handbuilding skills always amaze me :D

As far as I can tell this would be very, very difficult to mold and cast. Especially if it was to be made hollow.

Talor, how the heck did you make this by hand? what about the mechanism? did you make that by hand? I'd love to see a video of this!

The movement is much better than a regular UFO, even on the middle layer!


So the mech is a UFO

When I read the title my first thought was "Chocolate, yum!". I feel cheated :( So, why the name?

I'm kidding, btw. It looks great. And so does the Mastermorphix.

Hi Alex,
I joked once as the first version had very smooth brown surface and looked very chocolatey! :D
Yum indeed!

You do relize that puzzles don't have to be cast. They were both made by hand. NO MOLDING/CASTING.

I am interested in selling the Dodecahedron, but I need stickers first. If anyone could make me some stickers (I'll pay of course) that would be awesome.
absaltaly incredible, they are flawless, were they painted, because the surface is amazing

Oh, wow, that thing was brown! I didn't even notice, I'm used to black puzzles so that was what I saw. Funny how the brain works. You're right, it does look like chocolate :D

I just noticed this thread just now--nice work! I know very well how filing in the correct angles with the bits I gave you is no small task...

For what it's worth--sticker wise--I'd go with a six colour scheme instead of 12; it seems to end up a much nicer puzzle that way.

Cheers!

..and it looks so, hmm, virgin in this pure, innocent white.
I'm not sure how to explain what stickers will do to it :wink:

These are such high quality puzzles, the build quality is of the top order. It almost seems a shame to sticker them at all...

That is gorgeous! :shock:

The stickers are perfect. I think I'm in love. Honestly, you chose the best sticker scheme I have ever seen. Great work!

Yeah...I know. Were you telling me or just reiterating what Taylor said a few posts up? :wink:

Either way...I'm saving. By the way Taylor, I noticed in the video (around the 45 second mark) that you had a little trouble turning the puzzle. Is that going to be a problem for the puzzles you sell on Bedard's or was that an isolated issue with that particular puzzle? Thanks!

No, sorry I was tired and pushed the wrong button.
