yep. No pillowing, no 'olzing', when not turned, you can't see any of the mech :)

well... You can see the mech when turned, but not more than you see the void-cubes mech. So you just see a tiny bit of the mech. :solved:

(no the mech is not even close to the void-cubes mech :wink: )

That price was a little bit of an exaggeration, it is closer to $470-480. It all depends on how thin I hollow the parts. :D

No, I did say _deeper_ cuts.

Here's another hint: it has 99 parts, but only 75 if you don't count caps.

Deeper cut than your Dino Skewb? Are you referring to a different puzzle - I didn't think that the Dino Skewb could be cut any deeper? :?

Sry I got confused. Are you saying it has 24 CENTER CAPS? or 24 caps for different pieces?

That's intriguing because I diagrammed a puzzle with exactly that number of parts in my notebood: 1+24+12+8+6+24 + 24 optional tiles. I'm nowhere near building it, but I nicknamed it 'Deep Six' anyway. Taylor encouraged me to attempt it over a year ago, but first I need more experience building some trivial puzzles.

Possibly just a coincidence; these numbers come up a lot when diagramming puzzles.

The parts breakdown is correct, but it's probably just a coincidence.

Here's a piece of a puzzle I'll be coming out with tomorrow! (Unless I miss the package from shapeways with the core...). If you know what it is, please don't say!

What fun is giving hints when others are not allowed to make guesses? Arguably I could make my own "hints with guessing" thread but maybe we could just scrap that rule instead?

Well... I guess those behind a new idea, *can* reveal more, or "play" with others
as long as they make sure they do not hijack the thread. And this always remembering
that the more hints given, the bigger the chance it can be copied.

All in all, the most important rule, is that we should make sure that the ideas are new,
never made before. Giving hints of a design which has been already made is misleading
and should be posted to the Building Forum instead. Thanks!

:)

I am sure it is something new, and it sounds intriguing!

:D

And to play my hint part too, here is a hint regarding another new puzzle,
which I chose to be my exchange puzzle (i.e. I made 100 copies to exchange
with other people):

How do you interlock identical objects (no glue or other joints, just simple contact)
such that they become more earthquake resistant than solid structures?
(the answer for this will also be known in around a month!)

:mrgreen:

Here's mine--It should be done within the next month.

It's never been made
It resembles a slim tower a little
It looks on the outside that it might use a cheese mechanism.
It's a promotional puzzle that I designed for a company
It's a 3 shelled mechanism.

:D

This is a puzzle I have worked on for over 4 years.

It is deepcut.
It is complicated, really complicated.
The smallest pieces are so small that some got lost by Shapeways.

It could be bandaged into a 24 cube :twisted:

It can't ba 24 + dino, because then bandaging it won't make it be a 24 cube... or you can make it a 24 by bandageing the mech but then that's not bandageing!

I bet it's a 24 + helicopter or 24 + 2x2

:D Greg :D

I'll just say it, mine is a 24-cube. The mechanism is what will (possibly) destroy your mind a little, I don't think anything like it has ever been done before. The puzzle must be 3d printed, because I'm sure most of the parts are impossible to cast. All I will say about the mech is that the simplest puzzles can be extremely versatile :D

I hope PuzzleMaster6262 doesn't mind me saying this. "It's alive!!!". In all honesty, it is like the Frankenstein Monster. While it was deemed impossible to make since the start of this cubing fad, it is rather ugly and unattractive. Its body is made up of parts from dead puzzles, pieced together into one body so strange it hasn't been done before despite the large number of failed attempts. The one thing is, you guys aren't going to protest this Creature's existence. When I can record with my brother's camera, you'll know what it is.

Not so much a hint as a straightforward tease, but who can figure out a name for this puzzle?

I don't think it's possible to do without a physical copy. Better just give some away.

No, that's not a correct name. This puzzle does not have five layers.

PS: If you make a double post on accident, just delete the second one. Right now it's impossible because I already made this post, but if you're quick enough you can click the red cross (next to edit). By the way, please don't quote pictures if not needed, they just stretch the page.
[Moderator: PM a mod if someone posts after you and we will delete it. Like I just did.]

Guys, it has nothing to do with Dino, the cutting planes don't cut the corners. It looks like an elite skewb, but maybe there's also turning corners likethe extensions of the lattice cube, or like a compy cube... that don't cut the corner itself!

Not so much a hint as a straightforward tease, but who can figure out a name for this puzzle?

It's not completely straightforward with you. You made the Dino Skewb that looks like a Lattice Cube. We can only guess where the cuts are on this.

I'll be the first to make a wild guess that TomZ's puzzle is actually a rhombic dodecahedron and not a cube, as they can look very similar when viewed from this angle. I have no idea what to guess for the name, though.

I think you're right. It might be made from a 5x5x5 but until we know, I'm clueless about a name.

Another two puzzles of mine
Fully Functional
Can't exist according to everyone
Takes the concept one step farther

7x7x7
The secret is within the edges.

I'm not going to reveal number 1 (since I already know, it'd be more like cheating). I can tell you this: if it doesn't work, you have permission to kill me.

Is it a 7x7x7 with a twist?

A 7x7x7 with a twist that has a twist :lol:
24 twisting parts instead of 12.

Oh God. We already have someone who breaks the universe. We don't need a second Oskar!

How about the first PuzzleMaster6262? :lol:

I just finished bolting together my first hinted puzzle and so far the universe is ok :lol:

I should probably bolt together my much less impressive one. Yours is designed in CAD, but mine's just a mod, so you should slow down. I'll bring out the Creature tommorrow.

A first PuzzleMaster6262 can still break the universe, so watch out.
