My last thread in this subforum was completely ignored.
Lets see what will happen here.
The color scheme is the same on every puzzle but still not perfect for photography.

I think that occasionally we "ignore" threads for 2 reasons:

1. You make so many mods (congratulations, by the way, as I think that's a record...)(more than most on this forum)
2. Some of us don't quite understand the mathematical relevance (I will have to look up the right thread to make sure)

Also, I remain intrigued as to the construction of that puzzle that looks like a Master Skewb but I believe is a 3x3 mod (I know that you posted some construction photos, but what shape are some of the extensions? Does the cube need to be cut?). I guess that kind of derails the thread before it even starts (maybe I will start a new one).

Does this complete a series (I think it does...)?

Edit: You said "all 10" in another thread, even though there is no 11th "on the building list" is there a mathematically relevant 11th? Master Skewb-Rhombohedron perhaps?

Where is that "thumbs up" or "like" button when you need it?

Beautiful puzzles by the way....i really like the axis skewb - does anyone make these for sale?

Beautiful collection.

My favorites are the both in the backround. I tried to build them. It is very difficult!!!!

Hi guys,

Uhhm. There is no axis skewb in that collection. :!: The puzzle in the upper row on the right is an extended Rhombic dodecahedron Skewb:
viewtopic.php?f=15&t=20289
An axis skewb has hexahedral shape, not rhombohedral. It is an illusion like the Master-Skewb-impostor aka Squished cube.

Most of my series are not about shapes. They deal with identical cutting and/or extending techniques. Additional entries for the "identical shape"-images are only a by-product in most cases. Exceptions are the NxNxN-series, which usually end at 4 for me. That means: It is complete until I find a different transformation technique to do another one.
BTW: In the image there is no transformation present which used an unmodified Skewb.

No they are not. :D After building the great stellated dodecahedron skewb respectively the eschers solid skewb they are just time consuming.
Stupid joke. I know. :roll:

ARRRGGHHH!!!!

You see? This is why i don't comment often!

Yesterday i was going to comment and say you should give more details about your puzzles as i really liked the two in the back but i didn't know what they were and thus couldn't look them up and find out more about them....but i said "no, don't do that...you will look stupid and foolish because you don't know the names of the puzzles"

Then while browsing the puzzles of the month for April thread i saw this puzzle: 194- Apr 5- kwsjack054's Axis Skewb (Mod) which visually is identical to your puzzle so i said "wahey! now i can comment on Andreas's beautiful Axis Skewb without looking foolish" so i did..... and now here i am ......looking foolish.....sigh! :mrgreen:

So can you tell me what the difference is between the two identical looking puzzles :?

I for myself do not like to write unasked articles in forum threads.

Please read this thread from the beginning:
viewtopic.php?f=15&t=16194
and you will see that you are not foolish. You are in good company.

I have done the same here:
viewtopic.php?p=246278#p246278
Look at the fourth image.
The axis skewb has a cubical (aka hexahedral) shape. This is a rhombohedra
which was built from a RhombicDodecahedronSkewb:
There is no other InProgress-Image. Sorry.

No need for articles....just the puzzle names would help!

:D i feel much better now! It's amazing how cubic it looks from certain angles :lol:
I still like it....whatever it's called!

Thanks for taking the time to moderate my ignorance!
