Hi, everyone! It's been awhile since I've made a post on here, but after a few months of being here and there, tweaking this and that, I finally can showcase my most recent build.
The polished and shiny finish on this puzzle is purely the result of good casting techniques; therefore no sanding or painting (which I don't prefer on puzzles) were done on it. Since the puzzle's surface is shiny inside out, it glides much like a mass-produced puzzle, yet has that unique handmade puzzle weight to it. I like to refer to it as a 3D printed puzzle in disguise, but with superior surface finish.
As for the name of the puzzle, I request that people refer to it as Dodecaphobic since the puzzle was designed with a slightly more shallow-cut Megaminx instead of the typical Megaminx to solve the problem of two cuts intersecting one another before reaching the edges, resulting in either a slightly nonuniform shape or an unaesthetically looking sunk-in tip.
With that said, enjoy the pictures and soon-to-come stickered version.

Slick! ...Literally and figuratively!

Have you described your casting techniques here previously -- and if not, could you? (I'm asking as someone who's had terrible luck with casting!)

Wow, great job.

Great attention to detail with casting. Just make sure you sticker it beautifully too!

It's a bit difficult to see in the pictures, but is this the face pattern?
