Hello, this is my latest puzzle transformation a sort of icosahedron,
the shape is constituted by 8 equilateral triangles and 12 isosceles triangles
twenty-sided throughout;

if anyone knows the exact name of the solid can reply here, would be very welcome

ENDED

Hello,
Thank you both, finally i found an example of an equal shape called by someone non-regular Icosahedron,

http://www.flickr.com/photos/neilfred/2170917891

I looked carefully at the museum to find something similar but i still have not found nothing.

The more similar is the truncation only by Andreas Nortmann but its seems obvious that it is a regular icosahedron

http://twistypuzzles.com/cgi-bin/puzzle.cgi?pkey=3048

then I just have to present a new puzzle the non-regular icosahedron,
the video will be uploaded soon, so good luck to the to numerous bidders :wink:

Best regards
Rafael

Hello Mr. Nortmann
how it is described, is that form, 8 equilateral triangles and 12 isosceles triangles,
think that soon I will create other puzzles with this form, I liked it, sure thing will not be an Ultimate skewb.

Best regards
Rafael
