Here another masterpiece designed by Greg, the first Face Turning Rhomb Triacontahedron. I think it is the first twisty with 30 axis?

The stickers made by Oliver. The stickers of Greg's DLI were also cut by Oliver.

Where have the tiny stickers gone ? :lol: If you have trouble sticking them you can use superglue. I used it this weekend for 0.5mm*1.0mm stickers and it worked really well :)

Great job on the assembly, it looks great :)

Amazing work again Greg/Claus. I agree, you should try and apply stickers to the small pieces. BTW, what puzzle needs 0.5x1.0mm stickers :shock:

The problem was the cutting of the tiny stickers. Oliver said it is not possible.

Then cut them by hand! Maybe since being converted to the computer 3D design world, you have forgotten how to use your fingers :lol:

Helicopter dodecahedron has 30 axis.

Nor is it the first FTRT, Eitan's Big Kahuna takes that spot.

Never the less, it looks pretty good. I agree it could do with some more stickers though. Mechanically this is the same as S&M's DodecaCopter II, correct?

Luke is 100% correct everywhere (although it's the first 'basic' FTRT)

are the 5-fold corners stable? Do they rotate in place?
If I were to design/print this puzzle I would go for a bigger overall size.
any chance of a video?

I made a piece-equivalence chart comparing this FTRT to Gelatinbrain's 1.4.5:

This would be a fun solve.

Were very narrow / small pieces that would be at the surface of the puzzle skipped or are those thin gaps the result of filleting pulling back the edge of a very thin piece?

Sigurd, you can watch a very very short video under:

The turning is smooth, as always.

I have problems with the memory in my smart phone.

Thank you Claus and Greg for creating this slot-filler. The Big Kahuna is now thrown out of its spot in the platonic matrix because of not being stickered.
Eitan, please do not take this personal. Claus has done similar things to me more often than I can remember.

EDIT: I corrected the reference to the wrong name.

I think Eric isn't gonna take it personally... Eitan on the other hand is going to take this mixup VERY personally :lol:

Nah, go for it. Nothing personal.

I'll eventually take another shot at the Big Kahuna, since it's certainly a puzzle worth making work eventually. Only when it's a good puzzle will I actually take the time to sticker the beast.
