Hi everyone,

This is the Golden HD or Hexagolden Dipyramid. :) It is of course made out of a Golden Cube and the stickers were machine cut with Oracal 651 Vynil. All of the cut pieces were capped with 1mm thickness ABS plastic.

I bought the Golden Cube about a month ago with every intention of cutting it down into this shape. But when I got it, I was too taken in by the puzzle. I put it on my shelf and I would just stare at it. It is such a beautiful puzzle that I couldn't chop it up. It was pretty funny that I started to cut it up into the hexagonal dipyramid one morning and that afternoon I saw Tony's post for his Truncated Golden Cube mod. Maybe something was telling me that it was ok to cut up my Golden Cube that day. :lol:

I was really hoping to have a video done at the same time but I got too excited to post this. The video will be up soon, I will post it here when it is done.

I hope you enjoy.

Cool! I pretty much love each and everyone of your puzzles, and videos.
Did you have any problems with interfering with the mechanism?

thank-you, i didn't have any trouble interfering with the mechanism but I did have to be careful when cutting the pieces so that I didn't cut both pieces of plastic that were connecting the face of the piece to the turning part of the pieces.......if that makes sense.
