Hey guys,
I realized today that I have never presented my first puzzle design on this forum, so I thought I would do it here.

This is the Windmill Square-1. I designed this puzzle back in November 2012 (boy that was sure a long time ago) and it was my original puzzle design. This puzzle is a modification of a Square-1 in which the cuts are rotated around a face so that they go through the edges of the cube. However, this puzzle was made to have no mirrored parts, which makes the layers offset and also makes the puzzle much more difficult to solve.
Edge length is 57mm.
I also made a VIDEO as well.
Some more photos:

I've decided to make this puzzle available on my shapeways shop here.
Enjoy!

It's still a great puzzle. It was then, and it still is now. I'm just wondering why you never posted about it until now.

To be honest, I'm not sure. I think it was because I didn't get registered on this forum until 2 months after I made this puzzle and instead of posting about that first, I presented my Shapeshifting 3x3x6. Oh well, at least it can now be entered into the museum.

I like the puzzle and the edited images.
Thank you Ben.

I made a puzzle similar to this a LONG LONG time ago and never capped the pieces. I should see if I still have it around.

I'll go searching for my old post!

You said it has no mirrored pieces. Does that mean this puzzle could be stickered like a "Ghost" Square-1? That would be a fun challenge
