This is the first mod designed by me, I hope you enjoy it.

I chose the name for its resemblance to the toy that are called Diabolo. :)

In the last image you see an event that can happen if we have a centerpiece of a face turned upside down. (I hope you understand)

Why do I have the feeling that this could make an excellent 3x3x4 shape variant...

On a seriouse note though, very nice job on the mod, I was actually thinking of doing the same thing but with different angles on it.

Wow man, you're just making one great mod after another. This is a very strange shape, but I like it, seems fun to play with.

Everytime I think I have seen every possible shape variant of a 3x3x3 somebody surprises me.
Well done!
