Daedalus is a masterpiece of design. Brilliantly creative and brutally difficult to both craft and solve, I've wanted to make this puzzle for a while.
According to Allard Walker:
Daedalus was extremely difficult to craft. The accuracy necessary due level the of interlock is intimidating. Every pin, route and component piece must be spot on for the puzzle to feel correct. I'm happy to report that the extra care we took during manufacturing paid off, and the result is superlative.

I have an original copy of this awesome design that was made years before Eric and his CD team produced them. I'm always impressed with CD craftmanship, but I couldn't imagine it possible to love the CD Daedalus any more than the original. FYI, it is possible and then some!! All the pieces move like buttah and the final assembly shape is perfectly square and flawless. Way to step it up, CD Team!!!
I’m stuck with pieces sticking out at all angles, but I am so happy that the Cubic Team has decided to remake this design. I’ve been hunting for a Daedalus for eons and am so glad that I got such a superbly made edition. It’s great fun to analyse and just as much fun to randomly fiddle with. An easy 100%. Well done Mr Benedetti and Mr Fuller.
