I like the "Calzone colors" but personally, I think there should be more grey and less black :wink:

It's very nice. Although I do like the original Tribulus better - for it's simple without an extra complexity and very elegant in both the lines and the look.

Nice puzzle! :) I like the original better because of its simplicity, but this is also very interesting.

I actually had the roll of grey in my hand, but decided to go with black. The nice thing about stickers is that you can change them! :D

This was the first time I broke out the Dremel in a while. The thing with sanding or using the Dremel on a cast puzzle is that it's MESSY. Hexis was cut down on the belt sander, and it still looks like it snowed in my basement!

I'm going to Axis the Mastermorphix, cut it into a Hex Dipyramid and then cut curves into it like the Tribulus and sticker it all black!! :P :lol:

FYI - I also prefer the original Tribulus. It's my favorite!

Wow, cool stuff! Like you I also prefer the original Tribulus for its simplicity and "cuteness" but this is also awesome :)

Wonderful work Calzone! Those tiny stickers on the (3x3x3) centres must've been hard to put on!

What would the purpose be of the 2 part stickers on some face of the corners?? These stickers cannot separate by legal turns!! Hmmm :|

Per

<edit>

OK i see it now from the video, these are not really same faces :mrgreen: A curved sticker would look awkward and not be so durable :?
