Does anybody wants to guess what comes to life if the yet stickered faces are extended?
Attendees of GCD don't need to guess.

If you do it how i think you would, you would get a puzle called "the pyramid scheme"

No, it is the Pyrainx. :roll:
Indeed. You are right. I had to make it because it was missing here.

I should get some hollow octahedrons. Without it becomes increasingly difficult to store these tetrahedrons in a space efficient manner.

Great puzzle Andreas, but it's been done twice before. It's called the Pyramid Scheme.

Made by the.drizzle: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=9682
Made by pirsquared (me): viewtopic.php?f=15&t=13048&start=0

Well done, anyways.

They are somewhat different.
Great puzzle Andreas. I bet it was a real pain to make.

Hulkinx? No, I will stick with Pyrainx to reflect the difference compared with Pyramid Scheme.
Thanks to all of you.

And yes, it WAS a pain to make but totally worth it.
