Hi everyone,

Here is the latest puzzle that I just finished up. It is the RD-1 or the Rhombic Dodecahedron Square-1. The puzzle was made with a Square-1 manufacture by mf8. All pieces were capped with ABS plastic sheet and the gaps between the extended pieces were filled with black Apoxie Sculpt. The Arlon and Oracal vinyl stickers were machine cut. I will post a video of the puzzle when it is finished uploading. Hope you enjoy.

You amaze me yet again by combining shapes and mechanisms, Kyler. I have seen lots of square-1 modifications and al lot of rhombic dodecahedra, but never combined in one puzzle
Too bad you weren't able to make the video in your usual style, I think your videos have the best setup and are a lot more explaining than most others out there. Luckily this was the last one.
