Amazing design again by Greg, looks to turn quite well considering how many cubies have to be aligned. Yet another puzzle I can't afford to buy :x

Indeed :( It looks amazing, i watched the videos of it being built yesterday and was really impressed, it looks like a wonderful puzzle, but beyond what i could ever afford to pay i think, and i doubt something this big and complex would ever get mass produced.

lets hope i can win the lottery some day and buy all these fabulous shapeways and hand built puzzles that i want! :lol:

Great work as always. I'll never get bored of seeing new cuboids.

Really smooth construction and presentation. The stickering job especially makes it seem professionally done. Amazing what a difference that makes.

If I may suggest something, try turning the brightness up a little bit to make the picture a little more clear.

Very nice!
Not the first, though (just clarifying, since you did not claim it to be the first...)

An interesting thread in which Tom Z explains why the corners cannot be made proportional.

No worries, perhaps we can negotiate a trade :wink:
In any case, as you were the one who designed the fantastic TARDIS cube, and as I always look after those who have looked after me, lets talk and we'll work something out :)

If I won the lottery, I'd give Greg's work out for free for everyone to enjoy 8-)

Good suggestion, and I agree. This is what happens when pictures are taken late at night when the kids are in bed :)

Congratulation to both for this fantastic cuboid.

I think it will be one of the two best cuboids ever made. The other one I think Greg is designing it in this moment for me?

The price at shapeways sounds be very good and fair for such a big puzzle. And I know what I say.

I will buy it in the next days. I hope shapeways will announce another sale off discount like last year?

Looks great! I wish it was offered in polished, but it must be over the 150mm cubed size limit for polished materials. Otherwise, extremely tempting...

What a beautiful cuboid! The larger outer layers make the shapeshifted and bandaged states look quite interesting.

Great job.
I'm glad this cuboid is not pillowed.
Well done!
