Hi folks,

I just posted pictures of a Rubik's Cube-style puzzle I made from paper with help from Stella. Unfortunately it's a bit too temperamental to really use as a puzzle, but it does work if you do the twising very carefully and help parts to go where they should.

Here's the page: http://www.software3d.com/ShallowDino.php

You might be interested that Martyn Cundy (co-author of Mathematical Models) showed me a "Rubik's" rhombicosidodecahedron that was made from card many years ago.

When it was first made it had worked well, but by the time I saw it it had started to come apart.

Interesting. I hadn't heard of it, although I think the same thing has been made in plastic now, as a modification to the megaminx puzzle.

I'd love to see pictures of it, especially the insides. I wonder how well it operated. No doubt its mechanics worked better than mine Confused

Rob.
