Both of the Gigaminxes that I have made are down to Tyler Fox. Without his masters I could never have made them. All I have done is make moulds and copied his pieces. I purchased the first set from Tyler in an eBay auction. I was so determined to win I even adopted the ebay user name of "Gigaminxwinner". This first set were used for the bigger of the two which became known as V1. Although this puzzle works I was never really happy with it's quality. Movement is quite awkward. I would rate it around 2 out of 10. Being a perfectionist Tyler set about making an improved smaller version. This time he employed the help of Geert Hellings who had access to a special 3d printing machine. It was from Geert that I got a new set of masters enabling me to construct a V2 Gigaminx. This one is much better than the first and is very usable. There are still some movement issues though and I would give it 6 out of 10 for rotational quality.
Update: I took the V2 to the Dutch Cube Day in October 2008. At the event a lady called Laetitia Lemoine solved my puzzle and wore it in nicely. Rotational movement is now good.
