Rotate the puzzle is not perfect

I've wanted this puzzle for a while but every designer has said that it won't be very stable. It'll have squishiness and catching problems. Were those issues overcome?

Looks amazing, I'd love to see a video showing how it moves.

I must say, very impressive! (I am also curious of its stability).
Combining two of the most classic concepts is always mesmerizing!

Well done!

:shock: This looks like a fisher cube trapped inside a normal cube on all six sides! Is this going up for sale or auction soon? Also, a video would be nice...

It's a very amazing puzzle.

14 turnable parts, 7 axes. 8 / 4 for the Skewb portion an 6 / 3 for the 3x3x3 portion.

If you want to play with this puzzle, it's Gelatinbrain's 3.4.11

Excellent work!

So you've done a Compy Cube 3x3x3, Skewb 3x3x3, Rex 3x3x3, and a Master Skewb 3x3x3. I think we can officially call you the master of cubic face/corner-turning hybrids!!

This puzzle is a need to improve the structure, expect to get smooth rotation

If you do not mind not turning smoothly, I'll upload videos

Also please guide me to the shortcomings associated

Thank you everyone

I don't think anyone expects this or any other puzzle to turn perfectly. Designing is hard. I'd love to see a video :-)

Personally, I think it turns fairly smoothly considering the complexity. Cool puzzle!

hmm. is this an impossible task to make it more stable?

I would love to own one of these puzzles but if there is that much catching and locking with each forced twist I believe I would never play it. but Still a wonderful Feat.

Wow that is just a wonderful combination of two puzzles alright. I am by no means a designer so no clue what to do to improve stability though, but gee, well done!

Hi!
On the video, the puzzle has no very stable sight. Do you think that he can be mass-produced? Do you think of improving it? Are you going to put on sale it on eBay or shapeways?

1.Do you think that he can be mass-produced?---->Currently not

2.Are you going to put on sale it on eBay or shapeways?---->If the improved structural stability, it is possibleļ¼Œ
