I really like the idea that the final "solved" position doesn't have the pieces aligned in the horizontal slice. Nice. Very nice.

Very nice! I really like the "slice" move - it kinda remind me the "star with a twist" by muffet.

is it a modifiaction of a manufactured cube? in this case do you mind say which cube did you use?

If I had to guess, I would say this was made using a Rubik's Cheese:

Oh, now I can see it =P Thanks.

Edit: even that you have used a UFO, I think that using a Rubik's Cheese would be better for modding,
but this is just my opinion.

its looking Great anyway.

Hello, although it is possible to construct this puzzle with Cheese, in this case has not been so, the name itself indicates that the puzzle has been constructed, the puzzle is built on a Rubik's Ufo. If you look at the video, at some point you see a part of UFO.

I personally prefer not to make puzzles out of cheese. It smells bad, and starts to mold after a few weeks. I'll stick to plastic if it's all the same to you.

Unless you use a good, hard cheese. They start to stink and get moldy, but as long as it's not Parmesan then your puzzle will be..... yellow strong and flexible.

Try Jarlsberg?

He'd have to use the famous cheese from Galicia, in the north of Spain, "queso de tetilla" (little tit cheese), that is pretty soft, so yeah, he has better sticking to plastic :D

The first who guess why it is called like that wins a point

Hmm.. Interesting...

I translated the wiki article.

Hello, he meant the last until today.

Well, this is perhaps the most entertaining hobby I've had and I have, so for now I have not thought to stop doing puzzles, I was always fondness for puzzles and now I can create my own ideas. What else I can ask? :)
