Cuboctahedron (AKA: Diamond Cube) and Octagonal Prism Sets now available.

I've finally got some new sets ready. The Cuboctahedron is a 14 color set and the Octagonal Prism is 10 colors. These should bring some new life to those old tattered puzzles.

Thanks
Chris

How many of us have cuboctahedrons or octagons...

Anyways, cool, for those who do, they benefit.

I'm going to be producing exact replicas of the originals soon if you want one (cuboctahedron).

A lot of us would be my guess. They're simple enough mods and were one of the first I tried building. In fact, I have an unstickered octagon sitting on my shelf, waiting for me to find suitable stickers. I guess that's one problem solved then :D

@ Jello:
Is there any chance you'll offer tiles for a bandaged cube soon? I've been having trouble in finding suitable stickers for that one, too. Tiles would be perfect because they would bridge the connections between bandaged pieces. And a bandaged cube with textured tiles would fit in perfectly with all my other tiled puzzles. I'm sure there are other people out there who would be interested in those.

My suggestion is to use Scott's method for tiles. Cubesmith tiles could possibly rip (don't want that to happen). Since I'm not in a good location for that kind of stuff, I just took paper plates, some of that vinyl film, a printer, and made my own tiles by putting the vinyl on top of the paper plate, running it through a printer to stencil the lines, and viola.

Even if you superglue the cubies together first?

Anyway, I'm using coloured pieces of 220g paper at the moment. They look good for now because they're new but I imagine they'll wear off pretty soon.

Oh, well. Maybe one fine day... I suppose the Cubeoctahedron and Octagon prism will have to do for now :?

Alex, try my method. Goto a party store, and buy 6 different colored plastic plates. Cut out the centers, and use a very exact ruler and a utility blade and make your own tiles. The super-glue the pieces with a dot of glue. That is how i make my square one tiles and stuff.

Well I superglued mine. :) I'm going to make better bandaged ones once I get some paper plates from the US and possibly a cube from Famwealth.

Alexander Star stickers would also be good, since most old ones have horrible stickers.

I think that all alexanders star STICKERS would be bad, because they are so thin at the tips that they peel back. I think that some tiles that could be super glued in are the answer. Also a 12 colored set would be perfect.
