Hi,
I wasted another Pyraminx to make another series complete:

I love how you group puzzles into series. Excellent stuff.

I love it too! I meant to post earlier.

I classify things like this in my head too.

And the collector in me loves making the "set" of something. In this case, tet truncs!

Please keep the series' coming! Some of us are (too) quietly enjoying them.

Everything has to have a place for me. I categorize all the time.
I just browse quietly. :D

Excuse me Juanan, but what is irregular in my truncations presented above?

I must say that even in its simplicity the second truncation in from the top left looks particularly exotic, and those unstickered ones have caught my eye...

This reminds me, a Tetraminx shaved down to be round and then extended into a sphere would be cool. :)

And it would be a challenge if you want to make it with plane cuts since the Pyraminx is not deepcut. Doing that to a HMT would result in the well-known Skewb-like spheres.
