Hi all,

I finished it finally. This is a quick post as I'm off to see London in the morning. Hope you like the pics. I cast the master and made 8 copies of the top piece.

It's very fragile, but I'm very pleased with the results. This is the third method of making the 2x2x4 now.

Nicely done wayne, you know, your method can also be used on the 3x3x3 to make it a 5x3x3. I already made two test pieces, it works, but i am counting on you to actually make it!

This is my prototype, I will now build a new one.

TIP: Clue in the 2x2x2 Kernel the fixed cubie to the axle, This will make any 2x2x2 more stable.

Note! A 2x2x2 has asymetric parts inside those 3 parts you can clue to one cubie and the axle.

As an aside note, I bet many of those who make their own mods have plans for the individual cubes involved as CAD drafts and/or VRML pictures. I mean, cross sectional plans for corners, edges, caps, etc, as well as the axis and guides. Part of that is not necessary such as an axis if a mod is based on an axis from a well knows puzzle (such as 3x3x3, etc).

That data would be highly appreciated as a great help to those who are not as handy with all the casting stuff, but would like to tray their hand on this.

Pictures of the individual casted cubes DO help, but still leave much to be desired.

Not exactly sure what you meant here. Are you saying that as good as photos are, you'd like some VRML files to download so you can get a better look at what's going on? Drop me a mail if you want me to email them to you (andf anyone else for that matter).

I'll eventually have them online to download anyway at some stage.

I kind of figured out that all those plans would end up on your site eventually. However from what I saw, for all the interesting activity in custom made puzzles and mods in the past few months, your site had not been up to date with that. Obviously, due to lack of time making puzzles! :)

I'll send an email to you. Also, I'd be very curious to look at other people's plans of the same mod types, and see where the plans differ.

Thanks!
