Hi there,

Last puzzle for today is 3x4x6! Designed by me in Alibre Design, and printed by TP member Incredible(Karl-Heinz).

The video will come after the weekend, so for now we have the pictures!

I just love seeing Olzed puzzles. They look so much more beautiful than the proportional ones.

Exactly. I LOOOOOVE curvy lines. I'd do it to all my puzzles if I could :D

3x4x6... wow, that's an accomplishment!

Looks really really good.
Does it shapeshift?
Is it the first 3x4x6 ever?

That looks not only impressive, but it looks like it's very good quality.

I really like the way cuboids look. It certainly gives one heck-of-a challenge for cubers like me. If it weren't for the V-cube 6 that assisted me in making the algorithms, I never would've solved my 3x3x2. But my 3x3x2 was very bad quality, and it was smashed months ago(see bottom for more details). So I factor in quality, too.

(I smashed a cube, and my sig. once said "to people who smash cubes, are you insane?!" I took that down, because I know that I'M not insane.)

Im pretty sure it shapeshifts.

And I think it is the first.

Thanks,

SO here is a video of THE BRICK - it needs a little more sanding, but you can see the shape shifting 8-)

Thanks Mark for this great design

It wasn't Olz'd, though.

This makes me wonder who's gonna make the first 7x8x9. 6 will surely be sure to stay away from THAT member.

If someone could design a 9x9x7, I bet they could make a 9x8x7.
