I made this cylinder in just over a day. I had been working hard on new puzzles for the 2016 Dutch Cube Day when two WitEden 3x3x7 Cuboids arrived. I quickly got the urge to make something with them but couldn't justify a lot of time away from my DCD projects. So I had a puzzle making blitz working late into the next night to get it done and out of the way. Ironically having made one I liked it so much I went on to make five more to take to DCD.
The Cylinder works very well but that's to be expected since the cuboid it was made from is great quality. I chose the same sticker scheme as the cuboid though changed the positions of the actual colours. I think green and blue work better for the ends since when mixing with shape preserved they can only swap with one another. Obviously it makes little difference after a full shape shifting scramble.
