    Hi Shapeways fans,

    Anisotropic Cube is a modification of my Gear Cube that is being sold by Buy a Gear Cube and replace four of the gearing edges by these four pieces. The result is a puzzle that has all the gearing fun of Gear Cube, but much harder to solve.

    Watch the YouTube video.
    Buy the four plane edges from my Shapeways Shop.

    All the parts are made separately and assembled later.

    Amazing... !

    Oskar did you miss a digit on the price of this "puzzle" ?
    - if not it should be a hit ! :)

    Yes, the price is correct.
    This puzzle is partially mass produced. The $30 gets your four 3D printed pieces to add to your $38 Gear Cube from Meffert to make it a slightly different puzzle.

    Are stickers available for these pieces to match the mass produced pieces?

    After stickers arrived from Dr. Sticker, I noticed that the PDF specified one white side, suitable for a black cube. I had to order one more side from Dr. Sticker in a new order to get one black side, suitable for a white cube.

    Please kindly post one more PDF and please kindly designate them in the links, one PDF suitable for a black cube and one PDF suitable for a white cube.

    (By the way I prefer black cubes, but that preference is irrelevant in this case. I own 2 black ones and 3 white ones, and bought white pieces from Shapeways, so my mod is white.)

    Dr. Sticker is very flexible. If you ask Dragan Tutic to cut you a set of black instead of white, he will do that for you. Same if you order six different grades of pink ...

    I just got this as the Gearcube Extreme for US$36 at Mefferts. I was wondering how to take it apart
