WOW! Words cant describe how awesome this is! When will it be on Shapeways, if at all? Also, is this the first puzzle to have two deep-cut axes and a shallower cut on one of the axes?

Awesome! I really love all of the Face + Vertex hybrids you do. These sorts of hybrids are very fun to solve. I think the closest thing to this from Gelatinbrain is 3.4.3 and to a lesser extent, 3.4.4.

Wow!!! I can't even guess how many shells are needed inside this to pull that off. Very very impressive. I too would love to see a video.

Are you sure you can't make it do a helicopter edge turn as well :lol:

Seriously, how many ways can you dissect a cube `at the same time`, I'd love to see a video as well!

I have Eric's Rex Skewb, and I love it.. if this turns well, it's on my list for sure :) .

Absolutely astonishing :shock:

I'd love to see a video too, I'm curious abou its stability. It's a wonderful achievement no matter what, but if it is also stable...just WOW!

Unbelievable!! As if the Rex skewb alone wasn't hard enough, you add another type of turning too! :shock:
Your design skills are incredible!

Well shoot, I never thought that a 2x2x2 puzzle could look intimidating. This is an awesome puzzle! Does it jumble? It seems like all those different kinds of turns could lead to some really nasty jumbling...

Neither geometry jumbles and the combination doesn't either.

I wonder though: is it theoretically possible to take two non-jumbling geometries and put them together in a hybrid puzzle such that the mix does jumble?

Excellent work and an amazingly beautiful (if frightening) puzzle. Does this use a shells mech or magnets?

I can only wonder how many different non-bandaged puzzles we can get from this one
by using bandaging tiles... Wait... did I just led myself to a unipuzzling paradox???

Technically a 7x7x7 is a 5x5x5,3x3x3 and a 7x7x7 at the same time.

Wait for more paradoxical side effects, e.g. ladybugs and butterflies with 2x2x2 wings passing by
(now that is some nice idea LOL), buildings shifting balconies but floors remaining invariant, and
Godzilla masterfully disassembling the Atom structure in Brussels!

:lol: :lol: :lol:

An awesome design, congrats!
But - how does it move? Is it really functional?
Others already asked that before: Can you provide a video?
If it is more or less stable, I'd really like to buy one at Shapeways ;)
