Claus, it hasn't taken you long to go from 3D printed add-on parts to full puzzle mechanisms. At this rate of progress, I expect the Big Chop in a couple of weeks :lol:

Thank you for these non-grouped-images.

I have a few questions:
Why have you designed the "Great Rhombic Triacontahedron" based on a 3x3x3?
Do you intend to sticker that one?
Why haven't you posted the Triakis Skewb here?

I love the Megaminx Tetrahedron! Will it be for sale? :)

Andreas, all new shapes I test on small cores like the 2x2x2 or mini 3x3x3. The printing costs for this will be less than 20 Euro.

When the shape is ok, I will build a mod based on a skewb or something else. I do not sticker the test prints.
I had forgotten that the Triakis skewb is a new one-

Sigurd, I am planning to offer some designs for selling in the next weeks. But by the Pyrainx and 3 other twisties, I built in the last weeks, I am not the inventor. And in this case I will never sell them. Are you interest in complete puzzles or only interests in masters for casting?

Happy problems like this emerge when you are building to many puzzles. 8-)
