I based this design on Jack's Cube by Oskar. I wanted to make something like this when playing with a Square-1, but I realized that it would not work with straight cuts. After seeing Jack's Cube, I designed this cube to be an edgeless mixup cube. The cube is designed to be 60mm, and I would like to print it sometime, when I can afford it. :|

I expect it to feel like the outer layers of a new V-Cube 5(with bumps)

Wow, how many designs have you got waiting in the wings? Or are you really doing all these new puzzles on the fly?

I have successfully built one out of a 3x3x3 Mixup plus by Witeden. It works great! :mrgreen:

Production suggestion: put it for sale at Shapeways with big print: NOT PROTOTYPED YET, LOOKING FOR SPONSOR. Then announce the link to your Shapeways model at the Twisty Puzzles Forum. Who knows, maybe you find a sponsor who is willing to take the risk.

I am eternally grateful to Claus Wenicker, who was so generous to sponsor two complete prototypes of the Over The Top 17x17x17 puzzles, both of which proved to be great "learning experiences".

Design suggestion: I am pretty sure that you can mod the edge pieces such that the puzzle looks even more like a regular Rubik's Cube. Try it!
