Have you had your CrazyPill yet? CrazyPill V2 is a shapemod of a 4x4x6 available from the Shapeways shop of CrazyBadCuber (CBC). This puzzle is the result of cooperation among many members of the puzzle community. It is an interesting shape-shifting puzzle with a great background, so I asked CBC if I could introduce it here.

CBC’s original CrazyPill design was a mod of Calvin Puzzles 4x4x6 designed by Tom Z. It was a great proof-of-concept but it had some stability issues that would have required extensive building up of the base puzzle. Instead CBC received permission from Calvin to use his patented design, pill it in 3D space and sell it as a shape mod on Shapeways. CBC then commissioned Grégoire Pfennig to take Tom Z's open source 4x4x6 design and not create anything, but to just add the design alterations that he specified.

CBC credits CrazyPill to Tom Z first and foremost for the original design, Calvin for allowing him to use a patented puzzle, and Grégoire Pfennig for putting the puzzle into 3D space.

I already have my parts and dyed them black. I’m just waiting on screws – Button or pan head is required - NOT the 3x3 cube screws that have a built-in washer. I’m also waiting on stickers from Olivér’s shop.

I was going to say it almost looks like a elephant s-word (Sorry can't spell).
