I finished an extended four layer cylinder last weekend. Nothing too exciting, but I'm really happy with it. It took much more time than I thought to make extended cubies. I made a couple videos and some pictures for you to be jealous and amazed by:
Scrambling
Solving

I'm thinking about selling it, but I quite like it for myself. :D

Hi :)

I'd honestly be more impressed if that cylinder-cube worked like a proper 3x3x4 cube. It seems to me this is just an extended 3x3x3 with rounded edges. Im not saying this is trivial to make. But not very interesting from a puzzle-solving perspective.

My favorite puzzles are the ones like gigaminx, olympicube 6/7 and superoctahedron (not sure i recall name properly, but a higher order octahedron anyway) ...

Cheers! 8-)

-Per :solved:

Trust me, if I could make a 3x3x4 I would have done it!

3x3x4s are a very difficult build. I've been making one for a while and i'm only half done.

Start off by making a 3x3x2 puzzle. Then apply the 3x3x5 concept to create the extra layers. Very tough stuff if you ask me. I'll take pictures of mine if I ever get around to finishing it.

I never really thought of it as a double domino before.
