Hello everyone my name is Rafael and I am a new member, I became interested in the manufacture of puzzles eight months ago
and I must say that finally we see the first results, If you are interested in watching other puzzle Modifications, if interested you may see more in my youtube channel;
Good, I wish you a good job or a good day, thank you all for read my second topic.

Here one of my last puzzle modification, i didn't designed it (for scruple) with Solid Edge and during cutting so I made an unforgivable mistake thus creating this puzzle, it is a simple puzzle modification of a windmill cube, the shape is an asymmetrical tetrakaidekahedron or decatetrahedron, the peculiarity of this puzzle modification is that: is unique.

At the moment this is my second unique puzzle modification (mistake), and I must say that despite the error, the result is not bad;

Well, here the photos (P.S problems with photos), and the video,

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kt_jZ5wEJFc

to make this puzzle modification i used a factory Windmill also called pinwheel" cube, milliput superfine white to fill, ABS to create parts of the structure and chrome black sheets to finish it.

thank you everyone

Very nice. Why assemetrical though?

Because it havent regular polygonal faces

I just used the generic word "asymmetric" because it is not a regular polyhedron

Wow this puzzle is really well built, but it is just too complicated for me. Good job though!

Thank you, but it is only a cutting mistake. i haven't understood if it is complicated to build or to solve it for you... if you allude to build it, i really can't build another again because it is a mistake, so it is too difficult to remake.
