Has something gone wrong with this last post? If not, that's not much of a hint :(

Carl has hotlinked to an image of a Shapeways model, which is private. Because the model is Carl's, he is able to see the image himself normally (because Shapeways detects his IP as being logged in) but we get to see an image "this model is not publicly available".
Carl, you should reupload the image to the twistypuzzles server. We can't see it if you link to it from Shapeways.

Here's hoping that it has something to do with The Comprehensive Geared Cube Kit :wink:

And sure looks like it...

It does... aside from the pizza cutter I added to the image for effect.

The blur makes it look like a shallow gear Dino-Dodecahedron.

Professor cornerturning dodecahedron. (If you dare name it 'master' then I will be very, very sad)

I'd like to know just how exactly you arrived to 20 types of jumbling on that and what are the different types of jumbling...

I never said twenty. Greg did. I don't know how many ways it can jumble, but it can get confusing quickly.

And no, not professor. Nor master for that matter.

It shouldn't be too hard to figure out what this is. The rest of the puzzle you've already seen.

Just ordered two puzzles from Shapeways. I'll only give a hint for the first one for now, seeing as I can't think of a good hint for the second one.

The first one is the non-shapeshifting Doctor Skewb.

I've learned to not post hints till I actually know I'll be presenting soon. So as soon as the rest of the stickers arrive it's time to present this baby.

My next puzzle:

Nonagons, shapeshifting, and stored cuts, but no jumbling. :shock:

At least I think it doesn't jumble...

Not at all. 8-)

I think I will reveal it tomorrow. I'm very excited. :)
EDIT: Well, slight change in plans. It might take me another few days.

It is a long time I have presented a new puzzle.
It is time to reveal a (distorted) photo from my new unfinished puzzle. (80% ready)

It is mostly (90%) hand made, and I'm working on it since 2 or 3 month. At the start Greg helped me out with some design help. So I hope it will have the same quality as Greg's puzzles.

It will be first show for public at the European Rubik's cube Championship at Wroclaw on the "Puzzle design competition"

Now who can guess what it is?
(Greg, please do not answer!)

More in November.....

Since the Shapeways website is currently down due to 'Sandy', I'll have to wait for uploading and receiving my models (I should have been quicker with my modelling....). More by end of November I guess...

Is it a 2x2xN puzzle with its surface made so it can contain a rolling ball in it, and where the surface would be ever changing as you roll the ball around?

About a week from now, I'll be presenting 3 puzzles. The first 2 are unfortunately paperweights :( . But I'm really excited to present the third one!

Hi Eitan, I would have to guess that would be a face-turning Starminx + Dinominx? Or something along those lines. If so, I have wanted to see this puzzle come into existence for some time now! :D

Sorry for the bump, but I just wanted to give a hint of a new puzzle I'm attempting to make which is very special. It should come out this summer. I'm pretty confident in the mechanism and I've designed it to be as stable as possible. Here's a hint: it's the first of its kind!

Interesting. I think it might be either a Square-1 variation or an oddly proportioned cuboid mod. Looking forward to seeing it!

A slightly different way of doing things... Please keep your guesses to yourselves! EDIT: Feel free to guess. I'm curious what people think.
