Hi everyone,

Well I can't really believe this happened. So picture this, one day while building I had the amazing idea to take a Fisher Cube and make it into a Windmill Cube, but make the cuts on the side and not from the top face. So I am really happy with this idea and I get to work on it and I probably spent way too much time trying to come with a new name for this fantastic (sarcasm) new puzzle. I finally cut the stickers and put them on and look at it. "Wow, it looks great," I say to myself. "It looks like a Slice Cube, mixed with a Windmill Cube, mixed with a Greenhil..........oh Ffff*****fiddle sticks, I just made a Greenhill Cube and didn't know it" Well it least it turned out nicely.

So, it looks like a Greenhill Cube but it is the same size as a 3x3. I tried to find some more info on Mr. Greenhill's Cube but I can't seem to find alot of info on the puzzle, I assume he uses a 3x3 but extended out. I found that Cristian Gyori made a fantastic one out of a 3x3 in September of 2009.

As most of you know, I usually sell the puzzles I make and I would like to sell this one. I never meant to copy anyone, I was just too daft to realize what I was building :oops: . Does anyone know how I may contact Mr. Greenhill to ask his permission to sell this puzzle?

Here are a few pictures, I will take a few more later tonight. I hope you enjoy.

Looks great. Looking at it closer it doesn't look completely like a Greenhill's cube. The side with the "v" cuts don't line up exactly the same, although it's so close who's gonna split hairs. It's almost like a Fisher Case cube vs an Octagon Case Cube or a Hexprism vs a Radiation Cube.

Well, it looks great and you did come up with it yourself, so it's still amazing :wink: I can't wait for the video!

Anthony is Anthony Greenhill's username on this forum, so you could PM him.

Oh well! Who cares? It looks really good though. I was just thinking, what would a fisher cube look like if the method to make it was applied to all 3 axies, and then also a windmill cube?

Anyways, I can't believe you made a Greenhill cube accidently. I couldn't make a greenhill cube even if I was trying to make one. :lol:
