Hello again fellow builders :D
I'm here to show you my latest mod, the hexagonal prism 2 puzzle. As chino did, i used the mass produced rhombic dodecahedron and added 8 pieces, then extend, and cut a few. I used fix-it-stick putty, and cubesmith vinyl. This puzzle took about 3 days to make, but i had to wait about a week while more vinyl came in the mail. Video coming soon.

You can use one 3x3x3 cube to make this one. Don't use Rhombic Dodecahedron. It's wasted. However, you built it and it looks great. Good job! Next time you should make a Hexagonal Prism 1 :D

Sure, it will be more easy. But you just can use ONE 3x3x3 that cheaper than a Rhombic Dodecahedron.
You can visit here for a tutorial how to make one by using one 3x3x3, just image:

I know how it's made. I just used this way because it's what i had. And my dad has to do the main dremel work, and making him do less work was easier on my part.

case closed. And i didn't have a spare 3x3, plus when using a rhombic dodecohedron, you don't have to fill in some of the edges.

Hmm, you true. However, it's just my opinion. You can do it yourself and how you want to do :D . Good job!

P/S: I found that we joined this forum on Tuesday and in July. I joined after you about 7 days later. :lol:
