Just wondering. Can you use olzing for this?

What is a "proportional" higher order Skewb? If you're talking about the Master -> Elite -> Royal -> ??? The center squares are always going to be way bigger than the rest of the pieces because you have to fit all of the extra layers into just the width of the Master Skewb slice layer.

Can anything be made proportional using olzing? I thought olzing was only used on puzzles that couldn’t be proportional.

That would be lovely!

(By "proportional" I meant "cubic, and having proportions that, if not olzed, would give uniform squares on all faces".)

It occurs to me that since there are two ways to build up higher-order skewbs (tetrahedrally or octahedrally) there might be two different ways to do this?

I finally figured out what the problem is here... Here are two types of olzed higher order skewbs that could exist:

Based on the dino cube (8 axis core) on the left, based on a tetrahedron (4 axis core) on the right :
(something like that if you get the point)

:shock: There is actually a puzzle Greg has not made?
I guess Claus will have to make his slave work even harder now. Sorry :lol:
I actually like the first one a lot more. More symmetrical.

Yeah, me too. Plus I imagine it would be more robust since it uses an 8-armed core instead of a 4-armed one.
