So I was lucky enough to receive my Master Tetrahedron back from Garrett this morning, included was a Gigaminx V1 =)
After work I snapped these photos to compare my Gigaminx V1.5 to the original design.

If I ever get my second one finished maybe I can do this more often (no promises)

Lol maybe instead you could just let people borrow the gigaminx, I'd love to try using one some time. :)

Some users are having trouble with the pictures. Maybe it's because dreseph.zophar.net and http://www.zophar.net resolve to the same host address even though they host different content.

For those who are having trouble, can you view the pictures if you click on any of these links? If so, which one?

I don't know why anyone would have trouble, I tested in all of my browsers and the links work fine. but I attached the pics to the first post.

The size difference is quite amazing. How much knowledge did you have of the dimensions and pieces/mechanism of V1 when you started your own build?

I had no knowledge at all. when I asked Tyler he thought it would be much more interesting to see what I came up with myself. and thats how I got it.
