This is truly insane!
Wow!

I have to question this. I wrote in the description of the original Olidjus that it has 18 segments in both the top and the bottom layer although it has only one cut.
Your puzzle has 4 cuts but 8 segments in top and bottom layer.
Do you own an original Olidjus?

Absolutely beautiful! It looks so true to the original that I would believe the same company had made it!
With the four cuts it is possibly extensions to a Masterball?

Fantastic work! Are these extensions onto an existing puzzle or have you designed the complete mechanism?

I'm guessing it's got a Masterball at the core...

Thank you all for your fantastic response.

Some of you are right. Yes, it based on a Masterball. This is the second explanation for the name I gave this puzzle, too.

I printed only the extensions.

Andreas, I am sure the Olidjus has only 6 moveable pieces on top and bottom. But I will check it this evening.

Amazing. I just looked up your member collection. Indeed. You own one!
Either the original has 18 segments per layer or this packaging is terribly misleading.

Andreas, the original Olidjus has 18 moveable pieces on top and bottom. But the middle layer has only one cut, similar like the square1.
