Click a thumbnail to see its larger version and description.
A hybrid of a 3x3x3 and a helicopter cube.

This is the first mass produced hybrid of an face turning and edgeturning hexahedron. The puzzle has two cuts per axis for both axis systems. Its shape is something between a truncated ocathedron and a cuboctahedron both of which are archimedean solids. A puzzle in hexahedral shape would have needed additional pieces. Therefore this shape was used.
Distance between the squares: 75mm
Weight: 206g
