I am not sure. Has this puzzle made before?
I can't believe that this design hasn't been done until yet.

All 6 faces of the cube are identical.

Isn't this an Axis 2x2?
It has been made before, but not identical to this one http://www.twistypuzzles.com/cgi-bin/pu ... ?pkey=2324

Thank you very much for your help.

Aleh's informations are right.
This is the first time I saw a picture of the Delta cube (in Hendrik's shop).

But now Andreas has the opportunity to fill up the museum with pictures.

Mods please switch it in "building" or "collection".

Doug, the Delta Cube has 4 axis. It is a mod of the UFO or cheese.

But does Katsuhiko Okamoto want you to do that? I know he tore down his website for the non Japanese people because he was mad at people copying his puzzles. I'm sorry I don't know where it is at in the forms that he said 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). :wink:

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?

Carl

Thank you very much that is what I was trying to say. He did let us(http://www.twistypuzzles.com) to add some puzzles which are already in the museum. I wish we could see his new puzzles but I do understand the scenario. One thing I'd also love to have is the poster that was on the home page(or every page) is how every puzzle is connected to each other(granted it wasn't up to date but it was a good start).

Carl and Darren: I can see your point.
In the past there was similar case and Sandy hid the puzzles after the users request.
This can always be repeated for other puzzles if somebody asks for it.

That is probably because Okamoto's Delta cube is listed under Hendrik's "Wanted puzzles". ;)
You'll find a link to the puzzle by first going to this page:
http://www.puzzle-shop.de/start-museum.html
Then click the "Wanted!" link in the top menu below the Puzzle-Museum header.
