As some of you may know at nations I lost my pillowed 6x6 (what a shame) however I saw this as a chance to make a better one, after some help from my friend will_57 My new pillowed 6x6 is done and looks better than I imaged. The part make the puzzle the same size and shape as the v-cube 7, all parts are printed in shapeways white strong and flexible then dye with black Rit Dye.

Enjoy

I may be swayed to get it... :mrgreen:

But then again the V-6B hopefully won't be that far away.

It's good to see that you got someone to work that out for you. Sorry I couldn't do it. I've been out of town and I'm about to start classes. Great job to both of you!

Nice work!

However, I gotta ask, how is selling this model on shapeways not a blatant violation of V-Cubes patent?

These are just extensions for a normal V-cube 6; you have to buy a V-cube 6 and glue the extensions on. I don't see how this infringes on any patent.

Ah, I see! I wasn't paying attention and thought it was a full print.

My bad!
