Hello, this is Hidetoshi.

I made a new(?) puzzle.

http://www.asahi-net.or.jp/~wq6h-tkj/bb ... THER_GROWN

It looks like Mr.Okamoto's Grown Tower, but inner structure is difference, and motion is a little difference.
And it's so small. 3cm x 3cm x 5cm only. (Photo's right cube is normal Rubik's cube)

The '(?)' mean is the motion is almost similar to Grown Tower. Can this puzzle be called 'new' really?

Those are amazing! I especially like the concept of the "bump cube".

Yes I think so.
There are so few people out there who can build a fully functional 3x3x5 you can be proud of yourself no matter wheather somebody was faster than you.

The "Rotation when hollowed" picture blows me away. Are you using a principle similar to Etienne's 7x7x7 to hold in the 2nd and 4th layers during the twist?

I was actually thinking of using that same concept to make a 3x3x5, but I simply don't have the time. Oh well, maybe some day.

Part 2: I have an idea for a fully functional 3x3x4:
Build a domino 2x3x3
Round the top and bottom layer
glue on 1'st and 4th layer with lips (like etienne's 7x7x7)
make new pieces for 2nd and 3rd layer ( in same fasion as the 7x7x7)
and sticker

Could this work/be feasable to make?

Sandy,

Sorry for delayed reply.

>Are you using a principle similar to Etienne's 7x7x7 to hold in the 2nd and 4th layers during the twist?

It was not similarly. The hooks (legs?) were reverse rather than Etienne's method. But I don't make some materials and I'm worrying to exhibit how to make, then I didn't write detailed structure now.
I'll send an e-mail to you with the structure's figure. It's so simply.
I hope to tell me your views after you got the e-mail.

Quinn Lewis,

>Could this work/be feasable to make?

I think, you can make it by your thinking method. Cause the extended (1st and 4th) layers inner side was covered half or over of parts everytime (similarly when rotate).

But 3x3x5 puzzle has a situation the extended parts popped up. When the situation, extended parts were held only their legs.
If you think to use Etienne's method, then the extended parts' legs will be deeply to hold when upper situation.

I would also be interested in seeing the structure, as I have seen and thought of several. Just curious if one of my thoughts was used. Is there a way you can send me an email also with a description of the mechanism like you are sending sandy?

Quinn,

Of course. I send a similar mail to you.
If you have a time, please tell me your views, too.
