best regards

Hi all,
a short on-going preview of the object

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HmIZ-jTxMQ4

now the puzzle is not ready yet this is only a preview, in the next video will show the complete work aesthetically+tension ready and I will mix it well to assess if there are, more structural interventions to be performed;
the thing that I do not like for it, is to be considered finished and ready to be shipped I'll take it apart and reassemble 2 more times :))

Hello all,
after a lot of time i'm here, today i've finished to assembly the bauhinia non-regular icosahedron, I apologize for the delay but unfortunately I had some health problems that have forced me to a stop mandatory, and then to suffer unwanted slippage of all my future projects;

at the moment do not want to open the "New Puzzle" topic as I usually do because I need time to apply the stickers and bring the tension of the screws to their original out of the box, this step is required because the half-turn of the screw does not offer less no benefit to the rotation of the puzzle quite the contrary;

In the photo the body, about the movement at the moment I am not convinced as I usually do i'll put it for sale, if anyone is interested can contact me to obtain a price range.

Best regards
Rafael

Well, this is the last photo, in a few days i will publish the completed body;
like the curvy copter hexagonal dipyramid this rex/bauhinia non-regular icosahedron is full of cuves, is full of subtle curves that will keep me busy for several days, so see you later.
Best regards
Rafael

Hi,
because the grout has hardened well in 20 hours the completion of the form was delayed to this morning,
I enclose a photograph, I'm already thinking about what stickers pattern to use, I would like to highlight the pieces that were once hidden but it remains to be seen, well
Best regards
Rafael

Hello all,
today, i've filled and glued the most involved pats in the cutting,
currently seems to be going well, I should be able to present the puzzle
on 24/12/2012, the puzzle will be sold exclusively though some will exceed harmless stress test* (turn turn turn turn turn turn turn turn jumble jumble jumble jumble) I will begin this evening the coating of the puzzle so soon the body will be presented;
Best regards
Rafael

Hello all,
i've started to extend 2x2 to make the 2nd Fisher, I am experiencing the feasibility of a Bauhinia non-regular icosahedron,
so far so good is not dead :D ... let's see what happens tomorrow
Best regards
Rafael

In photos the rex/bauhinia non regular icosahedron i hope you like it

See you tomorrow to show you the complete puzzle
Best regards
Rafael

Hello all,
this is my latest transformation a brand new puzzle like almost everything that I've created so far
a pyraminx transformation, I planned to do a remake of Truncated 14 to do fresh meat to update a puzzle with pictures old and ugly, (for my page & moderator of the museum) but unfortunately my fancy took possession of my body :) ,
the shape in question is unclassfiable and have a total of sixteen sides like my latest Octagonal dipyramid;
regarding stickers i've planned at the moment divide the larger surfaces in three different colors each, turns is perfect and shape also,
in the video of the object i will show this puzzle and some turns of the re-tooled TOD;

the puzzle more similar to that was presented in 2003, was the Jürgen Brandt's Knuffy cube from which I took the name

http://twistypuzzles.com/cgi-bin/puzzle.cgi?pkey=3198

if I have time later i'll place a picture of some sides completed;

At the moment all was sold and for new ads for sale if you would, come back next week with the release of two 2x2 Fisher cubes and possibly the second 3x3x3 non-regular icosahedron and before the Christmas break I will try to complete a complex & particular puzzle;

P.S. I had in mind to do other more complex puzzles, only that the plane has left China to Italy with a registered letter to the board 29/10/2012 has not yet touched on Italian soil the plane seems to be lost in a wormhole :evil: ;

At the moment is all
best regards
Rafael

That looks incredible! I really like the 'sharper' points caused by the cuts.

In that image appears that there is a piece that doesn't appear on the normal bauhinia, right?

Yes, I started using this form while I was thinking about something other than the regular icosahedron'' I thought it was new, however, after you took me to see the work of Jürgen Brandt, I like to then be able to offer a wide range of puzzles with this shape for wink collectors.
Best regards
Rafael

P.S. when ready, could you use the double entry in the museum to to replace it with this?

Yes, the cut revealed a hidden piece that moves and hides I dare not imagine how this can be difficult to solve;

Best regards

On going: standard 20 different colors, no particular stickers modification will be used, I think it is already complex enough to solve.

Recently I overwrote some duplicates but do not remember which. I searched again for the puzzle with you as inventor and found no duplicates. Please take a look for yourself and give me another hint.

EDIT: corrected wording.
