Octadot

Click a thumbnail to see its larger version and description.
A curved cut version of Trajber's Octahedron.

Octadot was created as a variant of the Diamond Delight puzzle (by the same designer), to allow rotations on the polar axes. To achieve this, one of the equatorial axes was eliminated, creating the octahedral shape. The dots in the centers of the faces are recessed, and are a result of the fact that the curved cuts produce extremely thin edges pieces at the face centers. Octadot is functionally equivalent to Trajber's Octahedron.
