About this Product

The Curvy Copter Skewb is a hybrid puzzle of both the Curvy Copter and the Skewb (as you might have been able to guess from the name). As well as being able to scramble like any regular doctrinaire hybrid puzzle, the geometry of the puzzle allows for very interesting jumbling. For example, once you've turned a Curvy Copter edge by the jumbling angle (about 70.53 degrees), you can then turn around a Skewb corner. Alternatively, you can do a Skewb turn, and half way through that turn you can proceed to do Curvy Copter turns. By combining both Skewb and Curvy Copter turns whilst jumbling, the puzzle can result in some very interesting states.

When you purchase the puzzle, you receive a set of the plastic parts. You must also purchase four M3 screw (4-40 screws should also work), about 10mm long or longer. You will also need to purchase a set of stickers, which can be bought from Oliver's Sticker Shop, or from Will Kretschmer (Will's stickers are more expensive, but higher quality and will be easier to stick to the puzzle), or you can get in contact with me for the DXF sticker template.

@Rayarchwood No, I did not sand any pieces. I did clean all the pieces with a toothbrush and soapy water, before and after dyeing the puzzle. It is real important to clean any plastic dust/powder from all of the pieces before dyeing.

@Chewbacca I received my puzzle and am excited to put it together, but I was wondering if you sanded it at all before dying or stickering it. TIA

@Rayarchwood I used a 1:1 ratio of Water/Vinegar (white distilled) and Blue Rit Liquid dye. I used a small saucepan on the stove top. I got the water/vinegar/dye mixture to about 180 degrees F, then I dropped the pieces in and constantly stirred them for about 20 minutes. Then I removed them and cleaned each part. Set them on paper towels to dry. 1 second ago

@Chewbacca what process did you use to dye the puzzle?

I ordered White Strong and Flexible Polished. I dyed the puzzle blue and used Florescent stickers. 2 thumbs up!
