Great answer! I will look your post up :)
So its hard to design? 8-) Would anyone be free to take up that challenge?

It is deepcut, correct? I dont like the name. well sorta.. But it should be renamed to something along the lines of Megaminx+Deepcut.
Maybe Deepminx? or Megadeep?

A Halfminx would be half of a megaminx puzzle IMO. like Aleh's puzzle.
Wich still btw. calls for a 2gen version made out of the Holey Megaminx (I CALL THIS ONE RIGHT NOW!!!)

Ahhh in case you hadn't noticed halfminx has everything to do with being deep cut. Each turn splits a puzzle that looks exactly like a megaminx directly in half (deep cut). This was named halfminx well before Aleh's puzzle and i think the name is pretty fitting.

Grigr, we can work something out here, dont loose hope! we can make a middle guy who can recieve the parts, then send on to you! how would you like that? :)

btw. about the crystal minx, I would much more like it with straight cuts! No doubt! how much larger would it be then? or whats the difference, I dont get it..

I agree with Doubleyou, I am sure there are many forum members that would be very happy to be middlemen to see some of your amazing puzzles come to life.

I would definitely put up a bit of money towards a couple of them to have sent to me and then have a chance to play with them before sending it to you. Maybe 15-25% or so.

not Curved version CristalMinx...
I do not like a bad proportion, within a very small triangle,
and outside is very large - so I made it narrower, with a curve.

Thanks Guys ;)
if ShapeWays not solve the problem with the UPS, Timur had already agreed to help me ...

Wow! I think I like that one even more! I also like your deeper cut Rainbow Cube.
