    Hi Shapeways fans,

    Septic Twist combines several ideas. Bram Cohen asked Oskar: "can you design a twisty puzzle with septagons?". Andreas Nortmann asked Oskar: "can you build a puzzle reusing this mechanism by Wayne Johnson?". The result is this puzzle with four heptagonal centers and 23 edges. The puzzle is not too hard to solve, but it looks quite nice.

    Watch the YouTube video.
    But the puzzle at my Shapeways Shop.
    Read more at the Twisty Puzzles Forum.
    Check out the photos below.

    Enjoy!

    I wonder how small you could feasibly go with these designs? Having a handful of those would be really fun. :)

    You might want to consider another name for these since septic has another meaning in N.America...

    Thanks, but the name is partly a joke, an infection-causing puzzle ...
