Hi,

yet another series finished!
For doing so I needed not another puzzle, but 12!
Instead of presenting one variant per day for the next two weeks here they are en block.

OctagonalEdges A00005294
4 edges truncated.

Can someone explain these number signatures for me??

@BlueShinyApple These are best described here.

Andreas, you have the habit of releasing your new puzzles in batches (I assume you make several at a time, as well?). One bit of criticism I've got: I love how you can take 3x3x3 truncations to so many different levels, but I'd love to see more of what you've done before: mods of puzzles besides the 3x3x3. Of the 43 puzzles you've made since the start of the year, 39 were 3x3x3 mods.

I take it you buy 3x3x3's in bulk? I'd hope so!

Also, with the 6th one, isn't the top layer's stickering a bit trivial?

@Rentlix: I know what you mean but I have good reasons to use 3x3x3s:
1. To demonstrate the truncating technique and finish the series every hexahedral puzzle is as good as the others.
2. 3x3x3s are easy to modify. Try some of the extended-truncated-mods with a hexaminx! :shock:
3. I have a lot of them. See the next point.
4. I pay an average of 3EUR for each and they are good quality with occasionally bad stickers.

Not that trivial. Two edges have no orientation and are identical. The other two edges are "normal". The 4 corners have visible orientation and two pairs of two are identical.

No. No extended puzzles for these. After I analysed all possible variants with OctagonalEdges with some degree of symmetry I came analysed them for their potential to result in interesting extended version. These 12 fell of the list afterwards. But you can see one variant here:
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=17655
which was funnily not made by me.
