Today I show you a mod based on a Skewb (addons only). Masters designed by me and 3d-printed in FDM ABS. Cast with Oomoo30 and Smooth300.

Thanks for watching.

That looks like it was a ton of work. Did you have to do a lot of smoothing of the masters with a solvent? Those extensions look really hard to cast. How many hours of labor went into this?

Do not forget to post a midturn-image.

I recognized that the yellow tetrahedron is never scrambled.
Was that the reason for you to put the signature on a yellow sticker?

Thanks for your response. Her some additional informations.

First the picture Andreas asked for:

Here the mold for casting. The Oomoo30 to very strechable. It was not complicate to find the best position for copying.
For the complete puzzle I need the center 6 times. The corners 4 times. To make the copies it took 75 minutes. I didn't make any sandings on the masters before.

Slightly off topic, but what resin do you use to make the pieces?
