Okay guys, I have been really busy over the past five days or so trying to make this completely new mod. I got the idea when thinking about the fisher cube. I thought, why can't someone make a cube that has six sides, instead of the normal four or the octagon cube, which has eight. So I drew up a little design, and went away with the cutting. Five days later, I was finished. PLease comment and tell me what you think. I know it's not a perfect hexagon, but it's close. :)

P.S. Don't skip over all the pictures, because i finally got my hands on a great camera. :wink:

Edit: Fixed it! :D

sweet! i love it! great job!

Ryan try doing this if you can. you always give us great pictures but i know i hate opening links and have myself been doing this. try resizing your images to 500 x 333 or whatever the biggest number you can get with 500 x NNN. here is the topic. this makes it possible to view your pictures without having a link

It's awesome, Ryan!
I love it! What a great idea!
Tony Fisher has inspired creation of many wonderful puzzles, I agree.
You just took it that bit further...
Well done!
Vadim

I feel that not only is this a great mod, but it has a great advantage over say an octagonal mod, since this one has only one solution...

Sorry, I meant if you change the colour of the two octagon sides, that would give it only 1 solution[/code]

Ryan,

Very cool. What's surprising is that we haven't seen this one before. I love they way so many people on this forum can look at an existing puzzle and see something new. I with I had that gift.
