Here is another version of a Master Cuboctahedron. I cut the corners deeper so that it goes into the center pieces. This makes it so that there is only 1 way to solve it. It becomes a Supercube minus the corners.

I have had this cube for some time now. If you know my work from the past this puzzle was made from the extra pieces that I got for when I made my megamorphix. I never got around to finishing this puzzle until this weekend. You may alos notice that it is not perfect, this is due to that fact that these were extra pieces and they were all not cut in the same manor. I hope you all enjoy. Let me know what you think.

i belive his avatar would be considered a cross between a gigaminx and a pyraminx crystal. It doesn't exist in real life, although both puzzles have been made before, although seperately. It would be quite difficult to solve, i imagine. :D :D

WOW Adam, very nice!

Just wondering... how much time do you spend in making and applying the stickers compared to the whole time for designing the puzzle?
(the stickering seems so tedious!)

stickers are always the worst, especially puzzles with alot of little stickers. I spend about 30 minutes designing the stickers and testing out the different sizes making sure that i get the correct size for the puzzle. if you have stickers that are too small, you see too much black. and if you have stickers that are too big you see too much sticker. i probably spend about 30-90 minutes on stickering depending on the puzzle. my x-cube was one of the worst.

my average time to build a puzzle is about 5-10 hours depending on the puzzle. sometimes i just draw and get new ideas from drawing. i dont really count that time but add in about an hour for drawing.
