About this Product

This is the Chimera, a puzzle suggested by twistypuzzles forum member pytlivyj_1 inspired on Tony Fisher's V-Dome. It is half of a 4x4 combined with half of a 6x6. In the solved state it seems like nothing can turn and it really just is a 2x2x2 cube, however as you do a few turns more moves become apparent.
This puzzle really turned out well and the turning is very good.


If you order this model, you will get a DIY kit of the plastic parts needed to make this puzzle. You will need to supply your own screws, stickers and springs for assembly.
You can also order an assembled copy of this puzzle from me directly, but this option is more expensive and it will take longer to get your puzzle.

Shapeways has recently changed their pricing making this model much more expensive. I've not yet had the time to optimize this model to be as cheap as posible. Please contact me at if you are interested in obtaining this puzzle so we can discuss cheaper options.
