I plan to eventually make one of these sooner or later, it's on my to-do list. And yes I realize my centers are a tad messed up, i'll fix it later.

Wow. I didn't think it would be possible to make one of these, but it looks like you know what you're doing. Good luck. :D

Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice,

I vaguely thought it might be possible but hadn't looked at it seriously.

I guess a 7x7x7 void might be possible in a similar manner, but stability might be a problem (and the hole would be rather small!)

I hope it gets built!

Wow. That is unreal! I'd love to see this thing come to life.

That's crazy. Glad to see it is finally being designed.

Looks great.

Just throwing out a few more ideas.


Edges Only Void Cube, Void Domino, and Void 3x3x5?

Edges only void might be tricky, you cannot fully truncate the corners of a void cube because you would cut too far into the puzzle. The void domino has already been designed, and the void 3x3x5 sounds fairly strait forward. good ideas!

What about some simple void cube mods? like the half truncated void, the octagon and fisher void... and more!

Once again, you cannot cut that much material off the corners... So half truncated void, octagonal void, and fisher void are a no-go unless you get really clever with the mechanism.

Turn it 90 degrees and tell me how it's going to stay together.
