Nice work. I hope you managed to get decent movement out of the Gigaminx.

Surlely one of the most beautiful puzzles I have ever seen, for 3 main reasons:

1. The super high symmetry
2. The quality of craftsmanship
3. The fact that each sticker has roughly the same area. It's amazing how much difference this makes to me, but I find puzzles with both huge and tiny stickers mixed together visually unappealing. Does anyone else find this to be be a critical factor?

This has to be one of the best shape mods I've ever seen! It looks incredible, and so cleanly done!

Great work Dylan! :D
