Hello everyone,

Here is the next collaboration between Karl-Heinz(Incredible) and I. It is a Vertex turning square antiprism. The Incredible Dino Door mixes only by jumbling, which occurs at multiple angles. Here are the pictures:

This is one I've thought of before (I <3 antiprisms) and it's awesome to actually see it!

Awesome! I didn't think the angles would work on this, but apparently they did! :D

Thanks for kind responses everyone!

The measurement function on my program isn't working for some reasons, but I have the measurements to the nearest degree. After turning one cut by any of these angles, you can do another cut on an adjacent vertex:

-78˚
-126˚
-156˚
-(204˚)
-(234˚)
-(282˚)

I put the last three in brackets because they are just the mirror images of first three.

It is the first puzzle I made that I had to do a decent amount of working out measurements before I started. If the measurements/angles where slightly out, It would not work.

Very nice! I think this could be considered a lower order version of Oskar´s Astroid Attack, which is also based on the square antiprism, though another shape.

Mark,

It is very nice to see the most elementary puzzle based on this particular geometry. Does this one has "overhang bandaging", similar to Pregnant Prism / JumblePrism, DinoBram and More Madness?

My feeling is that the overhang bandaging makes your puzzle more difficult and interesting to solve than Astroid Attack, which is based on the same geometry.

Oskar

When you think of it, a dino (corner turning) anti-prism has already been made :p

Can you guess which one?

Please don't forget my Jumble Prism II. It too is a vertex turning square antiprism (or gyroelongated square dipyramid).
