This is my newest mod. Made from a mini C2 cube. Enjoy (sorry for these small pictures, my phone camera is bad, so I resized it)

Nice, I'd like to see it stickered, maybe in black. One of my all time favorite 3x3 mods. :D

Very nice puzzle, it looks very well made.Just a quick question though,do normal hd's have a cut along that one edge like this one?

No, this is a 3x3x3 cut down to a HD, built up to an axis cube, then cut down on a different side.

Yes, theVDude's true. You can make this puzzle by using the CAD to design Axis and then Hexis or cut it like me:
3x3x3 -> Hexagonal Dipyramid -> Axis -> Hexis.

I'm going to make new puzzle. Here is the design picture:

The pieces have color are center pieces.

Sure, it's very hard to build this puzzle. You will have no frame to paste plastic so it will depend on your shaping skill. Other way, you can cast it if you can but you will need all cubies size. I'm building it and finished 60%. Hope that I will finish this Sunday.

P/s: Nice to meet you too. :D

I agree with you.. it's must be so hard.. because to make it without cast you must transform it 4 times, and imagine how it will cost, because to build it, it will take double time, double work, and a lot of passion than axis cube.. I can't imagine how tiring it is, because personally to make axis cube only, I have taken a long of time... :?

Finally, good luck with your build :D

Wouldn't transforming it 4 times be the same a rotating it 120 degrees along a diagonal axis like Drew did in his solid works tutorial.

However. I cannot understand all what you wrote here, so if I wrong when reply, please let me know.

P/S to all: Does anybody have a name for this puzzle?

In Drew's solidworks tutorial he made a diagonal axis though the cube and then the cube 60 degrees along that axis.The cut remained stationary while the cube move.It created and axis cube.So I was thinking if rotating 60 degrees along that axis is equivalent to two transformations, rotating 120 degrees along that axis would be equivalent to 4 transformation.I don't have solid works so I don't know if it would work.Could some one with some cad experience please tell me if I'm right or not.

No. It'd be 60 degrees on one axis, then 60 degrees on another axis.

Oh you right.Now that I think about it moving it 120 on the same axis is the same as moving it -60 on the same axis.

In CAD, if you rotated a cube with 3x3 cuts around a corner axis 120 degrees, the end result would be a normal 3x3.
