i've just completed this puzzle made from brand-new DIY A1 cube, it's smaller than greenhill's icosahedron and bigger than Andreas Nortmann's truncated icosahedron. All pieces were capped with white plastic sheet

It's quite amazing how many different shape mods you can make from a simple 3x3x3! I like it, looks great :D

So you can scramble it without shapechanging it, I love that!
Nice build

What is its diameter? Or edge length?

But you have to restrict yourself to halfturns.

What about doing it with a 2x2x2 or 4x4x4 ?

5x5x5 isn't possible because corners will disappear.

Maybe, I'll try with a 2x2x2.

I did it that way but dylan_46 said his is bigger. But maybe the difference is just the thickness of the plastic sheets.
