My first plastic sheet mod. :D When I received my Pyraminx Crystal, that was the time I realized that I should own a Brilicube. The base of the puzzle was a Mozhi 3x3 that made the turning great and makes corner cuts. Hope you all will like it. :)

Are those the real 3x3x3 Edges? Or did you create new ones to sit inbetween those corners? The latter would be amazing!
Lige Greg I cant wait to see a video!

But I thought you wanted to own one? Now you're selling it?

Fantastic puzzle Hex! I love the Brilicube, it is such a deceiving puzzle. Good job. :)

I believe this is made by rounding the edges and expanding the corners. The edges you see here, I assume, are floating edges alike in the original Brillic/PC puzzle. If you disassemble a Brilic/PC you see a megaminx with expanded corners and rounded edges with floating deep-cut parts.

Personally I doubt the edges are floating. There is no point seeing as the floating pieces would do the same job as the hidden edges. I also believe that people may think they're floating due to the cuts of the corners, but the cuts can change on the inside. Personally I think there is a bit of truncating and extending involved, but the edges you see now are the normal 3x3x3 edges.

You would want to get Aleh's approval before doing that.
