About this Product

The Dino Skewb is a combination of two famous puzzles, the Dino Cube and the Skewb. The Dino Skewb's mechanism is based on my Tetrahedral Twins (also available from my shop).

This is, to my knowledge, the first ever Dino Skewb. It looks exactly like a Lattice Cube (Master Dino), but it is quite different. A Lattice Cube turns like a Dino Cube with turning tips.
My Dino Skewb does not have those turning tips but, contrary to the Lattice Cube, it does have the deep cut of a Skewb. The turning on the Skewb cuts is great, the Dino cuts have a little click to them because I needed the pieces to overlap a little to prevent gaps from appearing. I choose aesthetics over functionality in this case. But it isn't bad at all. The puzzle can be a little squishy at times, but overall I'm very pleased with the result. 

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 (M3), 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 tom@tomvanderzanden.nl if you are interested in obtaining this puzzle so we can discuss cheaper options.
