Hello everyone! This is my first post. Now down to business. Here are the facts: I got a Rhombodedron 3x3 from hknow, and it came today. It it a great shapeshifting puzzle, and using axis cube logic, I solved it...not.I think I may have ran into a prity, but I don't know. Maybe I turned the piece by accident, but this is improbable as the puzzle is far from loose. See picture: It's not like the other big triangle piece is also turned, this is the only one. Help, please?

You don't want to look at the big triangle. It's the small equilateral one that is flipped. Just flip the big corner and the small corner in opposite directions like in the beginner's method. Always willing to help people out! :D
P.S. Congrats on your first post. A lot of members join and then never post anything on the forum.

Thanks! I just remembered: The orientation of the equilateral triangles don't matter! This means that I can flip the big one and complete the R' D' R D cycle with an equilateral one b/c their orientation doesn't matter. Thanks again!

Welcome to the forum smanhmanmodder! :)

I cannot see a picture in the first post.

Code:
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/WnW00f0977trql_MJJh3OE8HcBU4LIM8wPmcAfN0VqnLpNv3lSzVhB9gkc_n7RDtsQksi51ckwc
into my browser, I get a 403 error

How is this in other parts of the world?

I thought it was my browser and brushed it off. It is the same for me unfortunately and I cannot see the image either.

I tested with multiple Tor exit nodes and I couldn't get it to work with anything.
