This is very frustrating to me, because Ecuber is presenting these ideas as his, when it is obvious that I am presently making the kits for sale. I must ask `what is his intention`? Is this some sort of contrary proof of concept or an attempt at simultaneous invention? For casual observers, this might not mean much, but I have thousands of dollars and many hours work invested in this project, for very little intended profit.
Here is the evidence of the kinds of bandaging I am making:viewtopic.php?f=4&t=25902&start=72

These parts are the same type of bandaging, any implied difference is insignificant:

Yes, Seth, these 2/4 or 3/4 aspects are somewhat pointless on a standard Crazycube (which is how they were presented by ecuber), as Andreas pointed out. But on my new CrazyB4cube centres or a 5face this will add something (because you pointed this out, I am forced to reveal a small new element in the kits). I had already been working on how to take the inner bandaging to the new centres efficiently (without creating a lot of centre parts). And I came up with a clip together system. Note that the black CCs are fixed when between 2 black inner edges. Some of this type of bandaging is intended to be included in the kit.

This is the full `black hole effect`, which is only functional with the `inner aspects`. But you can see from it's construction that it is an efficient use of parts. The reason it is black is because if the inner components were coloured, the bandaging would be indistinguishable. The piece on the right is one of my Research and development pieces, to show how I came up with the concept:

Unfortunately, I have to reveal early. But I `unfortunately` need to defend the project. I don't need to be doing this though, it's distracting me from building. This is obvious.
