    White nylon plastic with a matte finish and slight grainy feel.

The Nighmare 3x3 may look like a normal twisty puzzle, but in reality, it is much more. The puzzle has hidden internal bandaging that blocks some moves throughout the solve! It's up to the solver to figure out how to avoid and work around these disallowed moves. even when many moves are blocked, the "slice" moves can always be done (as seen in the video).

Due to the high number of parts, the model for this product exceeds the limit set by shapeways, and the ordering for this puzzle can only be done through the backdoor meathod. This involes using the co-creator function to notify me that an order has been made.

When you purchase the puzzle, you have the option of buying a do it yourself kit, or an assembled puzzle. The diy kit only includes the parts for the puzzle, it does not include stickers, or screws. If you purchase an assembled puzzle, the puzzle will be shipped to you assembled, stickered, broken in, lubed, and ready to play. Either option you choose, I reccomend getting a black puzzle, because over time, the white material will absorb very small amounts of dust/dirt and will become discolored.

To order An assembled/finished puzzle, please send me an email at gingervergo at gmail dot com. The DIY kits are shipped to you directly by Shapeways (you will make payment to Shapeways). The assembled puzzles are shipped to you by me (you will make payment to me).

Hi, Just curious, but on the DIY models, why is the black so much more expensive than the white? When I look at the materials list on the right, comparable black and white materials are the same price. Do you use a different white material than the black to make it? Thank you
