Hello everybody, this is my new puzzle,
This is my good friend (DDR) designed and produced a three-dimensional model with software renderings.
I use the cut and paste method to built.
You can see what cube it is modified it? :lol:

It looks great, I don't know what it's made from, but it does remind me of a Square-1.

I agree with eye2eye. It's a skewb.

It's definitely based on a vertex turning octahedron, but it was probably made from a Dayan jewel cube (basically a vertex turning octahedron without the tips) :)

6 axises 4 pieces around every centre.
How can you see a skewb in this if it isn't even deep cut?
Nice mod though, very good looking.

Wow nice puzzle! Very cool shape-changing.
And it is a magic=vertex-turning octahedron, 100% certain.
