    Hi Shapeways fans,

    Illegal Cube is a puzzle that should not be allowed to exist. This 'cube' has two corners and three edges too many, and two pentagonal faces. Still all types of turns seem to work. This puzzles is inspired by an idea by Jason Smith. Bram Cohen calls this type of designs 'fudged'.

    Watch the YouTube video.
    Buy the puzzle from my Shapeways Shop.

  2. Just when I think I've seen it all when it comes to twisty puzzles, you make something like this! Ah, now I really have to find a job so I can maybe afford one of your puzzles!

    I am interested in designing a puzzle similar to this in that it would require "fudging". How well did the puzzle turn? Is it worth giving the design a try?
