Hey everyone, I would like to present the 6x6x4 cuboid, designed by myself for Crazybadcuber, also known as Dan.

This is my second puzzle I designed, and yet again I am very proud of how it turned out. At first the puzzle had an alignment failure, causing a reprint of just the centers and core stems. Once this was done, the puzzle turned out just perfect!

dimensions: 82 mm x 82 mm x 60 mm
weight: between 120 and 140 grams I would assume.
You can buy this puzzle on CrazyBadCubers shapeways shop.

Beautiful! Careful, Greg. Looks like the pupil may become the master!

Thanks! Next? Who knows, I think Dan doesn't even know! He just says 20 different puzzles and asks what I think haha. So who knows what he will have me do next :) Tomorrow I will have my next puzzle in! It is only a small fun puzzle though, nothing big :)

I just wrote the descriptions for this puzzle and discovered a strange problem:
I can't write anyhting which does justice to the amazingness of this design and still fits the seriousness of the museum.
That means: In one or two weeks I will have added this puzzle to the museum. Then you might look into this entry and enhance it by yourself.

I love cuboids and always have been. And so I always love to see new ones come to be! Very nice Jerm!
I hope to own some of your work some day.

I am sure that whatever you come up with will be perfectly fine :) All a good design takes is time. Double checking features, imagining the puzzle turning in someones hands to show where issues might arise, and more patience than anything. There is no need to blast through them trying to get as many puzzles out as possible. The only result will be many puzzles with less than average to average results. By taking twice the time on one (or even three times longer), Like myself, one may discover an abundance of improvements and even restart a design 2-3 times :) Maybe add that to the description!
