This is my best casting project so far. Few minor blemishes but otherwise it is great. Movement is superb. You could look at this as a cubic 3x3x5 only not so cubic.

A video is available here. A very brief 'tutorial' is available here.

That's awesome! I just read that you were making one of these.

Are the stickers a little bubbly or is that just the lighting?

The stickers have a very slight texture to them due to some minor air bubbles under them (in the cast part) but it is not nearly as noticeable in real life as it is in the pictures.

Very nice Tom! I really like cuboids and you're an excellent designer of them.

I wouldn't say designing cuboids is a skill - it is rather trivial. This one is more like casting practice as whipping up the design was a 30 minute job.

Nice puzzle! I had some STLs or masters for one of these, never got around to making it tho. Glad to see a good quality one made.
