Hi,

To extend the other variants with truncated corners would be repetetive, ugly or both. This means I have finished another series.

This first is the extended mod of the Corner truncated 000 011 101

I like the first one. It looks like a square dipyramid.

Thank you guys.
The first one is an assymmetrical trigonal dipyramid:
Six sides.
Three looks stickered like the cube
Three look stickered like my Pyramorphix (aka "Extended Corner Truncated 000 011 101 110")

I make my mods while sitting in front of the TV => ca. 90 minutes per day.
Regarding my entire collection: No progress beyond this posting beyond some additions.

I stand by what I said before, but I must point out- the first one fooled me as it resembles puzzle which certainly is not new, but look closer...

It's interesting how much different normal vs extended cubes look. If you didn't have them side-by-side, I wouldn't have noticed the relationships.

I assume you want me make something besides 3x3x3's? The two modified ultimate Skewb I posted less than 2 weeks ago were almost completely ignored.

Which was the one you thought it would be?

I have 33 pictures like the two above. I build some puzzles just for the purpose of these pictures.

It fooled me into thinking it was just a HT and an extended HT.

I apologize for not posting in the Ultimate Skewb mods- I've been busy lately, and TP is not higher in priority than the 3 AP science classes I regret tripling-up.

They're both very nice puzzles. Look interesting to play around with too!
