hi all
this is my marco square-1 Continuation.
I use cut and paste to build.
(Fully-function)

Produced this cube is inspired by GREENHILL.
When I saw GREENHILL'S TETRAHEDRON,
I also want to made one for me.
In fact, I can not do like the perfect GREENHILL'S TETRAHEDRON.
anyway, thankyou to Mr.GREENHILL.

thanks
SmaZ

Woo Hoo! Looks great. Is that for me? :wink: I'll be over Wednesday to pick it up :lol:

It sure looks better finished than it does as a work in progress. I couldn't picture it when I saw it last week.

Great looking puzzle :) The corners must have taken a while to extend!

Equivalent to a Danger Cube with a 'Marco quarter twist'?

Marco is a pretty cool kid. He's a local secondary student, and member of the forum who is too busy studying for exams right now to post much.

He should be back with us once summer comes around!

It's on purpose. This is the 'Marco' version which has a quarter turn already done, so the solved shape doesn't match the normal solved position (as with Tony's Golden Cube). :D
