About this Product

Sadly, these puzzles can no longer be produced. Due to their small size they could not be printed reliably and Shapeways refuses to print any more.

About these puzzles
The Mini Starminx was made after a challenge from Andrew Cormier to make an as small as possible Starminx. I pushed the limits of WS&F and managed to make a Starminx only 25mm on an edge. Given it's success, I've now made a Pentultimate and Pyraminx Crystal at this size too. Both puzzles turn very smoothly and are very stable. The Pentultimate has 164 parts, the Starminx 197. The Cyrstal, Pentultimate and Starminx are both 25mm an on edge, I strive to have a Megaminx and Master Pentultimate available at this size soon.

(Please note that for the DIY kits, the EUR prices include a 19% VAT to be paid by EU customers, whereas the USD prices do not. Also, I'm sorry about the high prices for assembled puzzles but I do not have much time so I need to set a high price to make sure I don't get more orders than I can handle.)

I am sorry, but DIY kits do not include screws or stickers since Shapeways cannot provide them. You can purchase stickers from www.dr-sticker.com and you should be able to get screws from your local hardware store. Depending on personal taste, you might want to use springs in your puzzle as well.

To order, please send me an email at tom at tomvanderzanden dot nl. The DIY kits are shipped to you directly by Shapeways (and you will make payment to Shapeways). The assembled puzzles are shipped to you by me (and you will make payment to me).
