That center (I'm assuming it's a center) looks olz'ed. Not sure why you'd need a 3x3x3 mod olz'ed unless you're doing some funny cuts on the outside.

Looks great! I'm guessing you'd solve it like a Domino.

That because it's not a 3x3 mod :) It's a floppy mod!

And if you put one of those under and one over a white KO floppy cube, you get a C4U 3x3x7 :D

Did I got it right, that this is a 90+180+180-3x3x3?
A 3x3x3 where two dimensions allow only 180° turns?

Cool puzzle, if it is wrong.
Very cool puzzle, if it is true.

Indeed, that seems to be the case!

Excellent puzzle by grigorusha and excellent observation by Andreas!

It seems you made Andreas's day.

Very cool puzzle! I love that it's the same size as a floppy cube. Did you have to CAD it up? Or did you simply have to put a rubik's cube in one of these: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vUXLk7zCKc0 ? :lol:

Would making it thicker help any?

I know it wouldn't look so nice, but it would still solve the same. :)
