If you have any questions feel free to ask! I will probably only sell this puzzle at auction because I had to modify some of the screws. Here is a link to the video : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t9gg5g3_Sf8&list=HL1338518119&feature=mh_lolz
I have been quite busy latley and I have been working on my 3d printer that I build and I havn't had many good puzzle ideas.

Nice! I like the complexity you add to simple puzzles. Another success.

Nice puzzle, turns very smoothly. What was wrong with the screws?

Could you make a 4*4 triangular prism out of this, like how the kilominx was created? That would be really cool.

Awesome puzzle btw!

I dont think a 4x4 version could be made because the cuts would have to be angled on the top and bottom like on a master kilominx but straight on the sides.

And the problem with the screws is that the heads were too large to fit on the top and botom faces of the puzzle so they had to be cut down very small. The entire puzzle was close to not even working but I was able to make it work by making the center pieces smaller and grinding down the screw heads.

I had to use the pillowed shape so the corner stocks would be stronger. It is just like the v7 because the puzzle needs more room for the mechanism.
