Hi,
Here are my 2 new mods: "Cylinder-1" and mini cross cube, which I later realised is the same as "Trick haus", though now stickered!
Here are the pictures.

Those mods look really nice. Great Job! You seem to have a liking for cylinders! :wink:

Do you have a plotter?

Everyone has to have their particular kink. Mine just happens to be primarily NxNxM transformations.

Very nice, Vadim. BTW, did you want some detailed photographs of your keyboard cubes?

These are very nice puzzles! I like the wave patteren of the stickers on the side of the puzzle.

Awesome... I love the sticker design. Also, the cylindrical look works really well with a square-1.

Lovely designs Vadim! Nice work!

And it seems that you *do* indeed have a cylinder fetish! LOL

:P

Thanks everyone!
I like making cylinders because they are fairly easy to make.
I guess I am specialising on easy to moderate modifications, rather than any particular shape, though I did make 2 cylinders (and counting! :D ).

I don't have a plotter, Ryan. I wish I did though. I cut all stickers out by hand.

Jin, yes please, could you just take pictures of bandaged keyboard cube? Thanks in advance!

Vadim

For me a 4x4x4 cylinder, please, Vadim :lol:
That's the best one in my opinion.

I Really like the Square-1 mod, Does it change Shape much? Its funny this is mad right now, I just got a square-1 a week ago and one of my friends suggested it would be cool as a cylinder Like yours is, I haven't mush modding experience, I think I'll start simple with just a Twin3x3x3 Type mod :) Keep up the good work.

Funny enough it doesn't change shape any more!
Even if I mess up the order of big and small sectors.

Now I guess the question is, can you really call it a sq-1 mod if it doesn't change shape? That seems to be the hardest part about solving the sq-1. Nice mods either way, even though I'm not a big fan of cylinders. I like the cube mod.

No offence to you here Vadim (I think you will agree here Vadim), your cylinder mods are all excellent, but Zac, you ain't seen a square-1 mod until you have seen Greenhill's mods.

Speedy, do you know anything about a Square-1? It is not any easier to solve than the original with this new shape. In fact, it is in my opinion even harder to solve than the original just because it doesn't change shape! I think with the mix of colors in Vadim's stickering makes it even more challenging.

Although I am still new to the world of square-1, I have just learned to solve it, so I guess I know a bit about it. I personally have always had trouble with puzzles that change shape, so that's why I didn't think it would really be that hard. I agree with you on the stickering though, that it would make it really hard to solve. It's a nice mod either way, I just can't really see how it's a square-1 mod if it doesn't change shape. Are there any specifications that I should be aware of? :?

Well, it's a square-1 mod, because it is based off a square-1. The mechnism is the same, therefore its a square-1 mod!

Speedy, the general solving would be harder because of the way it stays circular, pattern recognition is down the drain, so it getting it 'cube' shaped would be harder.

I totally agree with you Pembo! Anthony's Square-1 mods are absolutely state of the art!
