Yep!

Well, this is the current model. I decided to create a new thread about the Tempest here, as at this point it is more appropriate.

As of now, we have yet to negotiate with qiyi about mass production, but at this point, with some people even questioning, I decided it was time to show that this is a serious project that is happening within our community.

We haven't printend out the model in the first post for testing yet, but Abo and I both agree that this might be the final model before we consider mass production. not just that, there are many new things on the inside of this puzzle that haven't really been tested or tried yet on cubes in the current market, so we are excited for that.

Any other questions and comments you can post here :)

Don't worry. We are still going over new prototypes. actually, the one I put as a promo image is actually another rp to type that we are going to print soon. we are constantly testing new models to make sure they are okay, constant changes and edits to fix them.

Really looking forward to it especially if it's like a gans :)

Well, since there is one design feature showing, I can give y'all one hint at a new design feature found on the tempest.

If you follow Jack Black memes from five years ago, you can assume he would love the center caps.

The gans caps by qiyi, Jack Black would love them.

Well, in terms of Jack Black memes, I found a black Jack Black playing blackjack and quite a lot of stop signs.
So I'm assuming it's octagonal, black, and has a spade etched into the black back.

hah, no spade, but you're right about the octagon center. from the slopes, Andrew and I concluded that an octagonal center would be best optimised to prevent catches, better so than a circle. the actual center is nothing complex.

now... second design hint:

quite ironically, the fangyuan corner is the closest resembling to that of the tempest, despite my ideas being released in april, and older. just think, corner cone, not funky pyramid on fangyuan.
