This is my newest custom puzzle. I printed it on black friday along with quite a few others. I just received the pieces two days. The mechanism is kind of complex but it is still sane. It functions alright, it's just that the circle piece like sliding around and getting locked up. The name has nothing to do with the puzzle. I just picked a random element and changed the suffix.

I really like this one! :) It's something different and also looks like a lot of fun. I'd buy one!

Nice to see this this in real life, instead of just a computer monitor. It looks really nice, and turns well too. Great work.

Can you do 90 degree turns on the weird wing things and carry on turning, therefore jumbling it?

This is a very strange subset of the 3-cub-prism. Very strange!

Quite the masterpiece! The different styles of turning are so cool.
