Above:My personal Octaminx of which I am very proud... if only because it was the first puzzle mod I ever managed to complete!
Click a thumbnail to see its larger version and description.
A fairly accessible custom build based on the Pyraminx.
Originally named Mini Octahedron, Tony Fisher later decided to rename it Octaminx.
My Octaminx can be made either from a Meffert's Pyraminx or Tetraminx. Tony used a Tetraminx since there's no corners to get rid of. To make, it is a simple cut down with no addition parts required. It is necessary though to shorten the screws and remove the ball bearings. Tony used Skewb style stickers with four colours, doubling up on opposite faces.
It was made in 1996 and then In 1999 Dieter Gebhardt suggested that Tony made the Truncated Octaminx.
