they already are for sale. I'll ship them in november. Speaking fo which after assessing the cost for materials assembly and sticker time, plus cost of vinyl. I think I'm going to reduce the cost of this puzzle to an even $400

its a bit easier than I thought to make, however the costs in shipping and supplies are costly in the long run. so I'd say $400 (includes shipping)

I'll make an official announcement tonight in marketplace and bedardpuzzles site

I added pictures of the new white build. this is Extremely difficult to make due to high part failure on casting with my current molds. I chose lighter colors because, well. It looks pretty =)

The production quality is unbelievably fantastic from what I can see via the videos.

All I can say is after you've sold a couple batches of these babies, you might want to send one to Meffert.

Thanks guys. It takes me a little more than twice as long to make a single white one as it does a black

Why not? I would be honored to have one of my puzzles made by Meffert. Assuming that I get a cut of the profits, of course :)

Plus you would damage those who have bought it at the current price. The puzzles would loose their value if mass produced.

I was saying to see if he would be interested in buying to rights to purchase the design from you. Not just giving him a free puzzle. Just giving him a business opportunity.

Could you please elaborate? What makes it more difficult? How are the molds dependent on whether the resin is black or white? Thanks!

3 words. Long. Pot. Life.

White resin takes nearly 3 times longer to begin to gel than the black. so with white I have to wait nearly 5 min before I can even begin to flip my first half over the next. where with black I just need to wait 30 seconds

I have been very lucky enough to be the owner of the second white master tetrahedron built by Drew.

In a word, fantastic. No more need be said on the matter.

-------

Okok, maybe a few more words...

The puzzle really does turn butter smooth with no extra lubrication. And while it does hang up a little bit on certain turns due to its inherent shape related issues, it's really not worth focusing on. Size-wise it is a bit bigger than a standard pyraminx but smaller than the plastic container the pyraminx comes in.

There is a true elegance to the puzzle and it's easy to admire. If you look closely you can definitely see its origins as a 3D printed master that's been turned into a mold, but that hardly detracts from just how good this puzzle is.

I did have some problems with it and certain members of my family, but more on that later in a different topic.

So this puzzle could be considered a shape mod of a Master Skewb, right?

I received my (black) Master Tetrahedron from Drew earlier this week, and finally got a good chance to test it out...
It is a very professionally done puzzle, and it turns very well! Still haven't solved it, but I'm really enjoying it...

Cheers,
Derek

This is so perfect. As if all pieces came out of one 3d printer or machine. I also love your choice of colors for the stickers. They fit really well to the color of the puzzle.
But when are you going to show us a Masterskewb or maybe the octahedron of this puzzle (I think that would be number 4.1.4 on gelatinbrain Applets)? Are those shapes - the cube and the octahedron - much more difficult to build with this mechanism? I count on you in this matter.^^ I want to see those! Especially the octahedron since noone has ever made one as far as I know.

I just solved my (black) Master Tetrahedron :)
This puzzle is really a fantastic build and it makes a lot of fun to play with it, because it turns smooth and exact.
Drew did a fantastic job. I really cannot await to finally get another of his puzzles.

I understand him to create a pillowed version, because the only thing which is tiring after a while is the shape of the tetrahedron itself. Drew cannot be blamed for that of course, but human hands and geometric bodies with such angles and tips are not made for each other. The RX will be more comfortable to play with.

Great!

Frank
