Mission complete! However game is not over - the only inception :)
Now the puzzle CAN be the largest as Guinness world record.

I have a question: are there two 17x17x17 cubes? One colored-pieces version (what we saw on Oskar`s videos); and another this one totaly black?

WOW AMZAZING :shock:

Cant beleive that you finished this so quickly!

That is just crazy, it seemed like it would take weeks to apply so many stickers!

And Tesseract750, I believe that this is one of 4 models: The first failed prototype belongs to Claus, the second succeeded prototype belongs to Claus (I think it was painted), the third succeeded prototype sponsored by shapeways belongs to Oskar, and then this one also belongs to Claus.

To own only one of these is amazing, but to own 3 of them!

Wanna share Claus? :lol:

One of these should be put into a massive securityglass housing in some museum.

Adam you are absolute right!!

I will show a picture with all 3 cubes this night.

Oskar has implemented a fantastic way to identify the pieces. Therefore it is easy to sort, but it takes time. The assembling is the easiest of all.

One side will take less than 30 minutes.

Beautiful. I love the stickered version. Can I ask how you treated the surfaces of the puzzle?

The stickered version looks so neat. I wonder, why do you need dying before applying stickers?

Happy now Rentlix? :wink:

That's fantastic, I'm not sure I'd like to solve it though. I appreciate massively the time you've put into this though. :D

You mean 1734. It's 17*17*6 not 17*17*17.

It took me only four prototypes to realize that identification takes so much time. Therefore I added numbers to the pieces, which you can see at the drawing below. According to Claus, all numbers are easy to read on the 3D-printed pieces, with the exception of number "6". However, that proved to be no problem as Claus writes "But every number I can't read, was a six."

Oskar, nice way of identification!

The stickered 17x17 is just amazing! No need to ever build a 13x13-16x16 :D
