May I ask that does someone MOD this before?

I started to make this during the exam time, and make this for our month.
However, I am dissatisfactory that I use wrong materials.

I add two more photo.

I am the original desinger of this puzzle. It has been my picture on skype for 6 months or so now. Cooldayr/Sky,kickflip1993/Dave, and monkeydude1313/Chris Bird have all seen it. I believe Nick Draper has and Kenny as well and I'm sure they all could attest to that. Dave even gave me suggestions on how to alter my design.

That looks pretty cool, a good 3x3 mod.

Could you give me the name you originally gave the puzzle?

I was going to put my own name on this puzzle. Like the "Hemerich Cube".

The idea of this cube is easy.
I think many people have this idea, so I have not called this is my original.
If thinking can be the original, I think that no way can find who think this first.
That's why I just ask that does someone MOD this before.
I wanted to make this about two years before, so I made this after the Fisher's Cube became mass product.
It is just a Fisher Axis Cube, rename may be unnecessary.

I decided on that name for the puzzle when I designed it in SolidWorks. I created the puzzle with no suggestion from someone else and with my own creative thought. Therefore, it WAS and original idea. That is all I am saying.

You can hardly take credit and call something an originall idea when you combine 2 mods invented by other people.

Every single invention in our entire history is based on some combination of existing ideas. It's the combination itself (what you combine and how) that makes an idea original... :wink:

:shock: I never thought of it like that, but you make a very good point, actually :lol:
Although, I can think of some of Oskar's inventions and I would like to know what were his ideas based on to make them :lol: :lol:

Did Dickens invent the word "it"? No. How about the word "was"? Of course not. "the"? "best"? "of"? And yet he is still considered one of the greatest authors of all time.

Obviously his works are just knock-offs of the original written language.

There is a difference though between looking at a puzzle and geting an idea for a puzzle and looking at a car door and getting the idea for a puzzle.

Actually,what is the definition of "original?
just an idea?or a real product?
than how to prove which one came first?

I have also sketched it when I had this idea a long time ago,
and I posted on Facebook, many people saw it and gave comment.

Let's make a better comparison.
A shapemod is built to be a shapemod.
A book is written to tell a good story.
Now a story must ofcourse use good language and well built sentences but the main idea is the story.
A book which combines the books of 2 other people is rarely considered a great writing achievment, there actually is a word for people over using known things in their books, it is called a cliche. Would you really comment me for thinking up of a combination of hamlet and harry potter?
If you insist on the form of words and the usage you should look at poetry, and I am quite sure people would not apreciate it if you would take original sentences and word constructions (words that poets DID invent) and would combine them for your own poet and call it your own idea.
The comparison you made reflects to the material people use for the end result, and that we are all fine with people using plastic sheet and milliput is obvious.
Not to mention the absurdity of people taking credit for a shape mod when the person hasn't even built it yet.
Suppose I would make and run a script that would rotate my 3x3x3 in solidworks over all possible axeses with a great number of steps (lets say 1/10th degree intervals). I would then have "invented"all possible 3x3 shape mods, now all bow down before me before you think of naming your next creation.


Instead of this arguement over what it is exactly and who invented it first, I would like to comment Rugia on a nice looking well built puzzle.

The funny thing is that's actually a really neat idea, very creative. Of course, I'd like to see *how* you manage to do this, on the basis that the "how" is a key part of the creative process...

Having said that, I do agree with your last point:
