Hi everybody,

today I want to present a puzzle that I finished almost a year ago shortly after Oskar released the video of the 3D printed Version.
It is a handmade version of Oskars Twist-and-Slide-4x4x4 Puzzle. http://twistypuzzles.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=25013
I made it from a mini 2x2x2 , acrylic glass and 12 mm dice.

It doesn't turn that well because I was a little bit unaccurate while making it, but it could be made perfect if someone is interested in doing so :)
That is also the reason why I never scrambled it and why I wasn't sure if I want to post it in the Forum or not.

Youtube Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xpRbDNabEus&feature=youtu.be

Now some pictures of the puzzle

This is superb!

I love to see hand-mods of expensively printed 3d puzzles :D
(Now I'll have to go rummaging in old board games to see how many dice I can scrounge up :lol: )

Nice clever way of doing this relatively inexpensively!

I agree. Very nice puzzle, with potential for much better engineering. I would however prefer a version with solid color faces cubes sliding inside it :wink:

Great idea and fine prototype!

Per :solved:
