This is not my design, I found it. It's pretty awesome, don't you think? http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/sebastiansand/RubiksCube/rubik18.jpg

Remember, this is not my design so please do not sell these. I just thought this was pretty neat.

PS I made a file on LDD, all I need is the core piece which I have at home. Also, this is 100% lego. Even the core is Lego!

I believe this link would be more adequate:
http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=226538

Is it just me, or does this look like it wouldn't hold together? The core has no overhang, and the pieces look like the would just pull out.

If you're talking about the interior circle, I really have no idea. But if you're talking about the core itself, it uses this piece: Image with another rod thru it. (it's a green lghtsaber in this model I think.)

I am just short that piece. I fully intend to make one of these if I can get a hold of that specific piece.

The core's overhang, although it drastically improves the function of cubes is not vital. The pieces on a cube stay together because the track on the edges is stuck beneath the center—in this case only the absolute middle of the center—, not by the overhang of the centers. (If I am wrong, please tell me.) I, however, am skeptical about how well it would work as well.
