The Platinum Cube is a Master version of Tony Fisher's Golden Cube in that it has shallower cuts which creates extra layers. It can also be viewed as a Master Skewb with the Golden Cube transformation applied to it. I have designed it to be very accurate to Tony's original cube: one corner piece is perfectly equilateral, and some other pieces get placed in the center as well. I've also offset the puzzle not just in one direction, but in 2 different directions on different layers to greatly confuse the solver, similar to a Ghost Cube. This puzzle is sold as a DIY kit from Shapeways. If you choose to order the DIY kit, keep in mind that you must assemble the puzzle yourself, and it is very difficult to do so. You will also need 8 M3 screws and 8 M3 washers. The stickers for the puzzle are available here: http://http://oliverstickers.com/stickers-for-shapeways-puzzles/ben-streeter Thank you for your interest! Prices: DIY: $99.99 USD

@benpuzzles Now I see it. The Master Skewb suggestion is very useful. Very nice job.

@RiccardoCorridori It can only make 120 degree turns. Look more carefully at the shapes and number of pieces.

By the way, it looks fantastic

To me it seems a normal 3x3x3 ghost cube. It does not seem to have the skewb mechanism.
