This puzzle is a Square-1 variant in which there are twice as many edges as before, and there are also 4 layers instead of 3. Because two edge pieces equal the same angle as one corner piece, the geometry of the puzzle is similar to an octagon. It also has a second axis for slicing, and because of this, the puzzle can also shapeshift into a 2x2 which can randomly bandage depending on the previous moves. This allows the puzzle to scramble in many, many more ways than the original version.

This puzzle is a modification of a Square-1 in which the cuts are rotated around a face so that they go through the edges of the cube. However, this puzzle was made to have no mirrored parts, which make the layers offset and also make the puzzle much more difficult to solve. This puzzle is sold as a DIY kit directly from Shapeways. You will need to supply yourself (1)M3 screw (15mm length), (1)spring, and (1)washer as well as vinyl sticker sheets. After placing your order, please email me your order number at email@example.com so that I can (optionally) email you the sticker templates for your puzzle(s) as PDF files.
