Hi,

It is such a primitive modification that I don't want to present it in "NewPuzzles".
It was the last modification missing here:

Hey I noticed you've been naming a lot of these mods with series of numbers. What do they represent?
Nice job by the way :]

The basically represent what part of the puzzle is cut: basically a code to describe what's been cut (if you can understand it that is! :) )

Very nice Andreas. :D

Originally it is a bandaging signature misused for representing a cutting scheme. Here are two examples:
viewtopic.php?f=15&t=17314
viewtopic.php?f=15&t=17334

To make the bandaged 3x3x3 out of the signature, use the program presented here:
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=15993



For the audience:
The truncated mods visible in the second picture are all possible variants that
  • have some edges cut like the octagon
  • have some degree of symmetry, at least like the waterdrop
