Hi Twisty Puzzles fans,

X-Minx was suggested by Nathan Wilson. The puzzle is a shape-mod of Adam Cowan's Circle Minx but with only three circles. Evgeniy Grigoriev's X-Cube is a Rubik's Cube with additional layers on some faces. Similarly, X-Minx is a Megaminx with additional layers on some faces.

Watch the YouTube video.
Buy the puzzle at my Shapeways Shop.
Read more at the Shapeways Forum.
Check out the photos below.

Enjoy!

Oskar

I saw the video a couple of weeks ago. This is a very cool concept, which I am surprised I didn't think of. Although I am a Nathan.......

Excellent idea, I hope that this can be mass produced, as it seems ideal to make a planets series all based on the same mech.

This looks like a very fun puzzle. However, I don't see how it is a shape-mod of the circle minx. The circles on the circle minx always stay still when the faces they are on move, but the "cirlces" on this puzzle move independently from any other layer.

The filenames of the images contain "V2".
What happened to Version 1?

Depending on what you want to count into the series there could be 80 different variants.

Version 1 was an electronic exploration of the different proportions and configuration. From this exploration I selected the current version.

Only if a paying customer orders them.

You mean like virtual prototype screening?
