    Hi Shapeways fans,

    Crazy Comet is a twisty puzzle related to Rubik's Cube. This one is based on a rhombododecahedron.
    Additional info for twisty-puzzle experts: Crazy Comet is an umodded, unbandaged version of Okamoto's Bevel Cube and Adam Cowan's Helicopter Cube. It is the smallest isometric twisty puzzle that "jumbles". According to the definition by Bram Cohen, a "jumbling twisty puzzle" is a non-doctrinaire twisty puzzle that cannot be unbandaged into a doctrinaire one. Got it?

    Watch the YouTube video.

    Buy the puzzle.

    Check out the photos below.

    Most awesome twistypuzzle I've ever seen. It's ashame we don't have more twistypuzzles people here. If/when I ever get some disposable income, I'd definitely love to own this one someday. What material do you print your twistypuzzles with, and how good is the rotation?

    1) White strong and flexible
    2) A bit stiff, given the nylon sintered powder faces
