Hi everyone,

I just finished up my latest puzzle mod. I call it the Bump Tetrahedron. The puzzle was made from a Rubik's Brand Mirror Blocks Cube. All pieces were capped with ABS Plastic Sheeting and the gaps in between the extensions were filled with black Apoxie Sculpt. The stickers were machine cut using a combination of Oracal and Arlon Vinyl.

A thank-you goes out to eye2eye and especially heiowge for letting me know that the Rubik's brand version of this puzzle is very tight and should not be as loose as it was when I finished the puzzle. After closer inspection I noticed that 2 of the rivets were out really far on the core. I have replaced the core with a Type A DIY and it has made a huge difference.

It is almost 2 am so I will post the finished puzzle pics now. I will add some pictures of the replaced core and a remade video tomorrow. There is one on youtube now of puzzle with the old core.

Hope you enjoy.

I almost overlooked the bumpiness in the first picture...
Now that looks good.

Can you do a checker pattern to show off the bumpiness? :)

It does seem to be much nicer with the new core. I love the pattern of cuts on those faces, a regular shape with irregular cuts on it. There should be more Mirror Blocks modifications, the irragularity just looks so cool.
Love your work as always Kyler.
