But does Katsuhiko Okamoto want you to do that?
Claus didn't say that this is for sale. I think he made it for his collection. You can make ANY puzzle of ANY designer for your collection (of course if it will be only one puzzle).
I don't think Darren was expressing concern over Claus making this puzzle for his collection. I think it was more the concern that Andreas publishing a bunch of pictures in the museum may raise an awareness of this puzzle that Okamoto was trying to avoid. The KO makers seem to keep an eye on the web looking for puzzles to copy, or at least that is the impression I believe Okamoto is under. His logic is if they don't see it they can't copy it.
Personally I'm not sure where I stand on the topic. I personally want to see ALL the puzzles I can see, and rather pictures are posted here in this thread or the museum I don't see much difference. Though Katsuhiko Okamoto is a very respected designer and this site may certainly want to respect his wishes.
A couple quick questions:
I see this picture (http://www.puzzle-shop.de/delta-cube.html
) is in Hendrik's puzzle museum already which I believe is Okamoto's original. But looking closer I'm not sure how that image was found. It doesn't appear to be linked to the main page in any way that I can find. I would have expected it to be listed here:http://www.puzzle-shop.de/original-okamoto.html
And it doesn't appear to be. Why not?
I also googled and found this link:http://homepage3.nifty.com/puzzle_cube/delta.html
Is that a page put up by Katsuhiko Okamoto?
