This puzzle is truly a behemoth. The effort and work put into it make it even more admirable. It's new. It's huge. It's terrifying. It's brilliant.

{CUT ! Not appreciative enough ! }

Undoubtedly. Good luck with it totally. I will be hugely jealous of the outcome.

I cannot find where it has and so I am wrong.
I'm not sure why I thought that.

Maybe I was thinking that the V-Cube 6 got an honourable mention in the 2005 Nob Yoshigahara Puzzle Design Competition.

okay, I have all my edge pieces done!

now all I need are the 5 other different parts to cast, those are the edge+ and the Edge ++ as I call them, along with my Center edge and Center edge +, and my corner + pieces..... saddly I have hit a road block.... the mold with the 3 most important parts is casting nothing but BAD PIECES. filled with airbubbles because my parts are so small and the lip has no way of getting resin into it. so I gotta mold those parts again this time in separate molds..... fun

not gonna be able to finish until tomorrow night earliest. sorry guys.


Don't apologize! You're doing a fantastic job. Looking forward to seeing the next update...

YEAH! That's what I'm talking about!

If you plan on selling one of these babies you'll be set for life!! (Or at least until you buy enough resin to make more of them :lol: )

Great work! I respect your patience (I will even more once you have stickered this beast)!

What would be the next piece of history made by the users of this forum?

I definitely wouldn't have been able to assemble a cat from scratch like that, the one next to that black ball thing. ;)

Congratulations to this masterpiece.
When I first read your announcement to build the Teraminx, I feared, that sooner or later technical problems would cause the project to fail. But over the time, reading about your progress I really began to admire the patience with which you finally succeeded. Fantastic.
The puzzle looks awesome and movement is better than I expected.
What an incredible job!

Thank you everyone!!!

This project was tedious. however I plan to make more molds this week, to double or even triple the speed of casting in the future. I might even be able to make 2 more! we'll see how that goes though..... right now I just want to take a break and sticker this thing.....

I am truly amazed about this puzzle.
It looks great + turns great and better than I expected. It is a magnificent accomplishment.
Comparing it with the Gigaminx it also looks even more pleasing. Not that bigger is always better, and perhaps this is due to the original 3*3*3, but it appears to me that this is really ideal in terms of aesthetics.

It really takes some guts to start a project like this and even to report the intermediate steps during the process, which went much faster than I could have imagined.

I am considering to organise a poll on the question whether we should have this ‘beast’ as some would call it (and I don’t mean the cat) at the upcoming Dutch Cube Day, but I believe that I already know the outcome.

It is really awesome. Congratulations!!!

Geert

Just wondering but when is Dutch Cube Day? If I can get this thing stickered by then (or even make a second by then) I'll gladly send it on its way!

wow

Since it goes so far beyond everything else it would almost be an insult for me to use the much used words I would normally post here. Enjoy these times because it's going to be difficult to top them.

Very very impressive!! With the potential of a second or third Teraminx being built, is there the potential of seeing one up for auction?

Thanks again everyone! I didn't even mean to set any historical moment, I just really wanted to have one because of how pretty the a dodecahedron looks! I'm so happy that you are all pleased!

how do I cast 542 pieces in .....3 real days of work? I have multiple pieces for each part. and in a few castes multimple molds of the same pieces. so I'm already working at 3x speed, sometimes I'm going at 6 times speed than the usual 1 piece per cast..... that would be suicide.


*EDIT*

I just knocked it off my desk accidentally..... it fell 3 feet onto wood and rolled across the room....... UNDAMAGED! Woot!
