Hello!
I am requesting that any shapeways designer put out a somewhat affordable full size non-pillowed Halpern Meier Pyramid. (Goal price = <60USD).
I just really want this puzzle because in my head I equate it to the tetrahedral equivalent of a 3x3 more so than any variation of the pyraminx, and I am a firm disliker of pillowing..... thank you so much!

What is full size? Same size as the Pyraminx?
This will obviously be a breeze to design.

Done. This item is for one with 100mm edges (=Pyraminx size). It is not eligible for my free sticker offer.

Thank you so much!!! :) I will purchase very soon, also not to be a bother but I would purchase even sooner if there was an 8cm version. Once again thank you so much. Does the design require any screws or springs?

1) At 20:35 a hawk requests a non-pillowed Halpern Meir Pyramid for a reasonable price.

2) At 20:56 TomZ chimes in saying it should be easy.

3) A few minutes pass and TomZ finishes the design, coming in $5 above the goal value.

Holy [Censored. Please be nice!] this forum rocks.

Gee, an affordable deep cut face-turning icosahedron sure would be nice... :lol:

nice, I might have to order one of these! not that expensive for a shapeways print!


Where would one get the stickers for this? or do you just have to order cubesmith sheets and cut them yourself?
