Hi Shapeways fans,

Anisotropic Cube is a modification of my Gear Cube that is being sold by Mefferts.com. Buy a Gear Cube and replace four of the gearing edges by these four pieces. The result is a puzzle that has all the gearing fun of Gear Cube, but much harder to solve.

Watch the YouTube video.
Buy the four plane edges from my Shapeways Shop.
Buy the Gear Cube from Mefferts.com.
Read more at the Twisty Puzzles Forum.
Check out the photos below.

Enjoy!

Oskar

All the parts are made separately and assembled later.

Yes, the price is correct.
This puzzle is partially mass produced. The $30 gets your four 3D printed pieces to add to your $38 Gear Cube from Meffert to make it a slightly different puzzle.

After stickers arrived from Dr. Sticker, I noticed that the PDF specified one white side, suitable for a black cube. I had to order one more side from Dr. Sticker in a new order to get one black side, suitable for a white cube.

Please kindly post one more PDF and please kindly designate them in the links, one PDF suitable for a black cube and one PDF suitable for a white cube.

(By the way I prefer black cubes, but that preference is irrelevant in this case. I own 2 black ones and 3 white ones, and bought white pieces from Shapeways, so my mod is white.)

Dr. Sticker is very flexible. If you ask Dragan Tutic to cut you a set of black instead of white, he will do that for you. Same if you order six different grades of pink ...
