Yes, it is one of my first mods. It's a functional extended 2x2x3. It's not one of my best mods, but I like it. :D

Nice!

Some brilliant mods you have with a quality touch.
(I love the octahedrons!)

And besides George Miller (who helped me with the 3D printing)
that is the only cast-home-made cubedron that I gave away!
Did you find *both* solutions yet?

;)

Not quite! I'm working on it though! It's rather difficult. At least for me..

The funny thing is that I keep most of these puzzles in a gym bag so that I can take them back and forth between home and college. I keep an eye on the bag, though. I would never forgive myself if I lost it! :shock:

Never saw the puzzle under the cubedron before. May I know what's the name of the puzzle.

Thanks. :D

Very nice collection. You have a fair few impressive gems in there. Your masterful modding skills only add to the collection. Good job. :)

As Katsmom said a couple posts above yours, at least I think this is the puzzle she was referring to, it is a Skewb Ball with stickers.

That's right! It was originally a zodiac ball that I wanted to completely sticker, but I found that rather difficult so I cut out dots to put on it. I suppose I should resticker it with 8 colors now that I have enough colors to do it. It's not that difficult to solve.

Nice collection. I like how you made a v-cube logo for your 2x2 3x3 and 4x4.

I'm afraid that I didn't make it. I know it's in my mods section, but it's was actually made by p|astic. It is absolutely perfect. I would highly recommend buying this puzzle, it's worth every penny.

It sure is. I think it's just called a Crystal cube though. I made it out of a extended cube one day when I was bored.

The sad thing is that I would have a much larger collection if I didn't sell all of my own mods as soon as I finished them. The only ones that remained are the ones that aren't good enough to sell or are too common to sell. It's a shame. I'm starting to miss my old mods. :cry:

Thanks to p|astic, I now have a skewb diamond!

What am I missing octahedron-wise?

I know I'm missing:
2x2 octa (link)
5x5 octa (I can't seem to find the thread)
3x3 octahedron (link
Octaminx (link)

What else?

I know that this pic looks a little goofy, but unfortunately I did not take a picture with the two edited-in puzzles while I had them. I had all of these at one point, I think, but like I said I just didn't realize it to take a picture. Anyway, here are the transitions from cube->cubeoctahedron->octahedron for rainbow cube, 3x3, 4x4, and skewb.

Yeah, except without the sticker job. It's made from the leftover parts from a Skewb and a Skewb Diamond after making a Skewb Star with the two.

(Great collection, by the way!)
