So is this is a curvy Redi cube? Can you supply some more details, like how was it designed?

Nice! Greg showed me of your work a couple of days ago, and I must say: looking good! The curved cuts really complement this puzzle; it looks absolutely brilliant. Do you have any plans to sell it on Shapeways?

It's the true cubical Pyraminx! (Well, without trivial tips.)

Wow. This puzzle is so elegantly simple I'm amazed that this is the first time it's been done. It's not the most mindblowing or revolutionary puzzle in the world by any stretch, but it's certainly beautiful.

I love it. Very cute and fantastic puzzle. :)

I designed it with Solidworks. I started with a very simple puzzle because I wanted to focus on the internal mechanism and find a nice design.
I printed it with the 3D Printer I got at work.

And yes I plan to sell it on Shapeways as soon as my shop is ready.

Yes, I wanted it to be more beautiful than complex but my second puzzle will be more complicated and, hopefully, equally cute :wink:
