Can the Super Octocube be made from 2 of these?

EDIT: OOPS, I now see that it can't... :oops:
I'm clearly not paying attention :lol:

From what I'm seeing, I don't think so. It looks like the edges are molded down the middle, thus always having 1 side like a normal edge, and the other with the 2 orbits.

I could be wrong, but I'd like to see that happen as well!

Wow! Looking forward to this!

By the way, there is an edge turning cube that shares the same cuts as the super octocube. Has this been made?

This is brilliant Calvin! I'll certainly be placing an order for this one! :)

I would love to see more of David Pitchers puzzles mass produced, he has some wonderful designs!

The two puzzles use different mechanisms and different pieces so this puzzle couldn't be turned into its Super version without the molding of new parts. Also, I'm not sure if the super version works with the core style that Pitcher used in his original as I was forced to use a ball core to get my mechanism to function properly. Great to see this fantastic puzzle get mass produced! I'll probably pick one up in a couple months if the price is right.

Yes. The edge turning version is the Sun Cube II. There is also a corner turning variant that as far as I am aware doesn't exist yet.

Very interesting puzzle,

Thank You Calvin to sell this. Congratulation for this invention David.

Are the shapeshifting patterns like super octocube possible ?

Corners and edges can switch positions. So yes. OctoCube demonstration video.

I'm looking forward to this great new cubic puzzle with a interesting geometry and beautiful patterns. At first glance, it looks like it might be easy, but then it scrambles and shape-shifts and no... not easy! :mrgreen:

I have been given so many reasons to not waste money on a wheel of wisdom lately. XD This and the Sun Cube look much more difficult varieties of the triakis geometry

I hope they stick to the standard colour scheme.

Given the internal mechanism, I think the pieces actually have to be capped. Otherwise there would be a large amount of catching and locking up.

I hope Calvin releases this as a DIY. Those tiny triangular stickers are going to be a problem, especially considering how poorly alined factory placed stickers often are. I would rather put them on myself. That way I know that they are properly centered on the pieces.

The Octo-Star Cube is up for pre-order on HKNow. $28 is not a bad price! I'm definitely ordering mine :D

Also of note is a 3x3x4 made by Calvin for $20. Was this a surprise or was it announced previously and I missed it?

I may be wrong but since it's available in clear body I think it's a rebranded 3x3x4.

Thanks for the heads-up. Sunday is a good day to check HKNowStore for new products, but this one seems earlier than usual :mrgreen: . I'm very happy to see Pitcher puzzles being mass produced. He has a some fun and interesting puzzles.

Wow! $28 is a great price for this puzzle!
The only thing making me wait to order is wondering if it will be released in color plastic (it has those little triangle pieces which don't seem to do well with stickers)

Do you have any plans to make this puzzle available in color plastic in the future Calvin?

For the 3x3x4 they are available now for pre-order in black, white and clear bodies - if they are a new puzzle by Calvin I will be curious to see how they stack up against the C4Y 3x3x4 which is one of the best puzzles I own in terms of movement and quality.

Am I the first who has received it?
Usually, delivery to Germany is not the fastest.
Anyway, I have got mine today.

Careful turning seems to be crucial (a pop can mean that the puzzle explodes more or less in your hands :roll: )
I have done a partial scramble and solve, only. Already, it catches a little bit less than out of the box and I'm looking forward to lubricating it after a little bit more of breaking in. (I really hope that the tiny triangle stickers will not cause issues. So far, they look better than the ones on my black Wheels of Wisdom before gluing them)
I guess, it is to be expected that a careful handling is necessary for a puzzle with so many tiny pieces.

A coloured plastic version would be fantastic and I would buy a second version in a heartbeat :)

No. Zem's super octo cube is split on both sides of the edges, and this is only split one side. You'll just have to get it through shapeways at the moment.

I don't actually have mine in my hand, but it's awaiting collection from the post office. I bought it at HKnowstore, I guess Calvin just hasn't updated the website for them. My tracking number became active the same day as the David Gear cube.

When I preordered the octocube the19th I asked Calvin when he would ship the puzzle and he said me that he only had few units of the puzzle and that was why it says preorder, so the first to preorder are very likely to get first the puzzle.

Mine arrived today. Slightly catchy, but nothing too bad it seemed, until whilst trying to solve it, I encountered a minor problem:

Of course I had to assemble the whole thing then:

Lots of pieces, quite difficult to get one whole stable layer to build on, but once you do, the rest is pretty easy. I did have a brief panic attack searching for one of the tiny triangles that I couldn't find for a while.

I will begin the second attempt soon! :D
