This a puzzle I finished building a while ago. I have simply not posted it because I was waiting for my cubesmith order to come in. That happened today, so I have just put these tiles on it to finish it. I am really happy about it!

Here it is:

I'm guessing the colour scheme is to match the 3x4x5 cuboid. It looks pretty cool. Well done.

Sorry for the poor quality picture. I hate my phone's camera.
Yes it does match. As well as my 2x3x4 from Garrett :) I have recently fallen in love with the japanese color scheme. From now on I will sticker every cube puzzle I build, this way.

Thanks for the comment Sebuver! :)

Nice work! What about a comparison picture with your other cuboids?

The Japanese scheme works very well for some cuboids, indeed.

Thanks Tom! You inspired me to switch to a new color scheme! ;)

as requested here is a cuboid picture (including a 3x3x3) (good thing is that even regular schemed cubes, match if oriented correctly. also my 2x2x4 from Gentosha :) ) (I just LOOOVE cuboids)

Where's the 2x2x2, 4x4x4 and 5x5x5? You have the 3x3x3.

That's one good thing about the Japanese colour scheme. As the red, white, green is my favourite corner (Does that make me sad?), it works great for me.

So, you are not always a fan of symmetric puzzles, right? :lol:

ahh Konsassen, dont question the symmetry of a NxLxM puzzle :lol:

I have a 2x2x2, but not a 4x4x4 (It recently broke), and my 5x5x5 has become 12 sided :)
For a 4x4x4, I will need the new witeden product. A 5x5x5, The Vcube ofcourse as well as a 7x7x7. I have a 6x6x6, but didnt include it in the picture because Tom asked for a cuboid picture (I dont really know why I included that 3x3x3)

Red / white / green is Italian :)
We have that Italian corner on nowadays "normal" colour scheme as well.
Just yellow and blue are exchanged in the Japanese scheme.
The old Romans have known it already: "de gustibus non est disputandum"

If you don't mind me asking, which method did you go about making this puzzle?

I bandaged the two small layers of the cubic 3x3x5 from Cube4You, after cutting the mechanism part off the top pieces. Then I glued those mech parts on to the pieces from a 3x3x2 puzzle. today I would only have used corner pieces only (8 cornerpieces in total) to attach to those mech parts. I hate how they look those pieces that are made from edge pieces during a mid turn, or shapeshift.

I'm seeing a 2x3x4 and a 3x4x4 in there. How did you make those?

I have an extra 3x3x4 and I was wondering if I could use that to make another cuboid.

Hi Roger, the 2x3x4 is Garrett's creation. He is offering it on his shapeways account for a very reasonable price!
You can build your own using a 4x4x4 cube though. Information on that can be found somewhere around.
That will give you one with jumbo 3x3x3 sized cubies. The one I have has rubiks 4x4x4 sized cubies :)

I dont have a 3x4x4! I wish I did! You are probably looking at my 3x4x5 wich is TomZ's creation. You can buy that at his shapeways account ;)

I see, thanks. TomZ's 3x4x5 are very nice. This is a respectable cuboid collection you got there. I'm still working on mine. I did make a 3x3x5 a few weeks ago using a spare C4U cubic 3x3x5, which seemed easier than making it from a 3x3x4. Which is why I have a spare 3x3x4 now. I will keep looking to see what I can make with it.

I know Traiphum made his 3x3x6 using a 3x3x4. So I am personally considering to try it. It looks like a good challenge ;)

I am also currently considering Jin H Kim (And Traiphum) 4x4x3, from a Eastsheen 4x4x4. It has 3x3x3 size cubies, so it will have a reasonable size! but that looks so hard.. But I would just love to have a 4x4x3! :)
