Hi Claus, amazing set as always! Have you recently expanded your collecting interests beyond twistys?

Also, did you get a new 3D printer? Those interlocking puzzles you printed look really good.

Wow! Many nice and also rare puzzles of various types. Nice twisties including heavy metal ones (had the pleasure of playing with), Stewart Coffin puzzles with all strange kinds of geometries; radio, dice, and office equipment from the far east; a big load of Strijbos' most interesting works, five Popplocks, and then all kinds of n-ary puzzles including some exclusive printed ones, together with some nice maze puzzles and a Cerradura Doble, and then some wooden burrs and some 3D printed burrs. I can only repeat myself: Wow! :D

I love those wooden burrs and the puzzle boxes, wood just looks so nice. And I repeat Brandon's question, have you obtained a new 3D printer or is it just a bad photo? :lol:

Claus,
Amazing as always.
And I have some requests all dealing with the second image.
The Ramka (top right corner) has a different color compared with the museums entry.
The VIP-Kugel (within the packaging)
The 4x4x4 (within the packaging)
The 5x5x5 (within the packaging)
The blind mans 3x3x3 (with the packaging)

First, thanks to all for your nice response.

Here is the picture with the custom made twisties

GUS & Brandon: I using the same printer like ever. It's resolution is 0.254 mm in X, Y and Z direction.
Yes I have enlarged my interest in other domains. My absolute favorites are Stewart Coffin designs. And here is the best of all, the orange/black hex prism. It has 6 pieces only. But it seems impossible to solve. Goetz is doing his best to falling in love to burrs.

Jumbo: Yes it is a Jugo flower completely in metal

otischeng: The excalibur I have designed by myself in CAD and it is 3d-printed.

Andreas here the fisrt part of the picture you ask for. The other will follow:

Claus, is that excalibur in a plastic material? (sorry, I don't know the name for it.)

Your jugo has a sticker....I need to get one. Did it come with it?

Every time I think 'I have spent far too much money on puzzles recently' I just have to look at one of these posts of yours Claus, and I feel a lot better about it :D

A whole lot of wonderful puzzles here. The 2 golden cylinders, are they both skewb shape mods?

The puzzles are very easy to modify with them, you can get them at the grocery store here even, I bet a hardware store would have them if you feel up to the challenge :)

Adam, I found both on ebay.it. Pictures of them I saw month ago on a homepage. I think iit was George's?

Rox, yes the excalibur is out of ABS plastic. I designed and printed it by myself in FDM 3d.
The sticker was on the jugo and belongs to it.

martywolfram: both barrels are skewb mods. This week there will follow a lot more barrels with further details.

Claus,

I noticed that two of your custom-made twisty are mine. Thank you for buying and assembling those. As Shapeways does not disclose its customers, I did not know for sure that it was you (again) who made the order. It is thanks to collectors like you that I can finance my prototypes, and show these to the world.

Thank you and enjoy!

Oskar

Wow,
What a great collection!

Are both your 4x4 and 5x5 rubik's cubes still unopened? That amazes me. Those are old versions of the puzzles, and for someone to buy one of them and never open it? I couldn't do it!
