This is the Venus DoDep 3x3x3. It is a super set of the Venus Crazy 3x3 Plus Cube. This is a puzzle concept I came up with on January 31, 2011. It was inspired by an image posted by Landon Kryger at TwistyPuzzles.com on January 30, 2011 and some questions asked by Oskar van Deventer. By February 4, 2011, Tom van der Zanden already had a working design in SolidWorks. This is his design but I've now changed the filleting, wall thicknesses, etc to exactly match the look and feel of the other DoDep 3x3x3 puzzles, and all powder drain holes have been made tumbling friendly. This should still be considered a Tom van der Zanden design.
This puzzle requires five 16mm 3M Slotted Cheese Head screws to assemble. No other hardware is needed. You may purchase stickers for this puzzle here.
