Here is a very simple mod - combine the parts from two Guo Jia diamonds to make a Hexagonal Dipyramid:

I'm going to do that with two transparent ones when I get them from PUZL. And the other puzzle is then a truncated diamond, isn't it?

The remaining pieces should form a "double-truncated hexagonal dipyramid."
Not sure if that's an official name, though.

I didn't make one because the second puzzle's core had one stripped arm.

I think a single truncated HD has been coined "Diamond Cube" or something of the like. So a double truncated HD would, I suppose, be called a truncated diamond, right?

As far as I know I hasn't been done, yet => There is not fixed name.

Once you get the double truncated dipyramid, you could extend the non truncated sides out to make a hexagonal prism.
