Hello all,
I am showing a new puzzle design of mine.
It's fully printed in FDM texture by Carl Heinz.
It work much like the Mini Rhombiminx(on a mini Es 2x2)

I'm not sure about jumbling, but im pretty sure it does.

Thanks to Incredible for the pictures.
Video soon by incredible.

As much as I love this puzzle, woud you mind resizing the pictures to a more appropriate size? :shock:

I really like combinations of different puzzles, as shown with the Super-X, combining the Dino Cube with 2³.

Great puzzle! When it gets jumbled, do the 2x2x2 rotations ever get blocked?

Very well done, I tried designing this but ran into a lot of trouble. I admire your endeavours, brilliant work.

I could design that, I think. I'm pretty sure I know how this was done, so that shouldn't be too hard.

Maybe I'll design it and print it! :D

This version is actually easier to design. Because of the pillowed shape you can use the Eastsheen 2x2. The curved cuts are byproducts of the pillowing and using straight cuts. In order to make a proportional puzzle of the same size, without pillowing or curved cuts, it would be quite a bit larger, so you have to resort to using a custom 3x3 core.

Making progress on the regular helicopter cube + 2x2x2 with the little amount of time I've had to work on it.

I'm sure I'll be changing quite a bit after I finish up the first design of it, though.
