So after finally getting settled in our new apartment after our move I was able to dig out my puzzle building supplies and finish this little guy. I have missed alot on the forum over the past month so it is nice to be back and it will be nice to catch up on what I had missed.
This is a Professor Cuboctahedron made from a 5x5x5 Eastsheen Cube. Most of the stickers were hand cut using Oracal Vinyl and precut 5x5x5 stickers from Cubesmith, and some of the corner stickers were cut by Dr. Sticker.
All of the pieces were capped with 2mm thick ABS Plastic Sheet (and yes the small caps were a pain in the butt
). As you may notice that the corners are not cut as deep as some of the other puzzle of this kind are. The reason that is, is because I wasn't really sure how deep I could cut without doing any damage to the internals and when I was sanding I stop a little short to prevent this. (this is my first 5x5x5 mod and a first using Eastsheen). I now know that I could go little a deeper, especially after seeing Tony Fisher's Truncated version of this puzzle (of course I saw it after I put the caps on
Please feel free to leave comments or suggestions. I was hoping to have a video ready before putting this up, but I will have one up soon. Hope you enjoy.
