This is a normal Alexander's Star:

This is a BrontoStar designed by Puzzleforge: http://www.shapeways.com/model/639921/b ... er-s-star-

Image

Can we do the inverse with a Dino Star (turning it to a "Dino Alexander's Star")?

Image

Am I the first on take this idea? Can someone want to help me designing it? If it can be done i let make it real

Thank you all and sorry for my bad english!

Hey there! I think the result would be a cube. In fact, standard Dino cube.

Si! El resultat seria un cub, un Dino Cub. (Catalan version)
Yes! The result would be a Dino Cube. (English version)

I initially misunderstood the question, but that lead to the interesting idea: If Alexander's Star is based on icosahedral geometry, and the BrontoStar is based on Alexander's Star, and you can extend the Dino Star into a cube, then perhaps you could "fully" extend either the Alexander's star or the BrontoStar to create either a Face-and-corner-turning dodecahedron or a vertex-turning Icosahedron (Dogic/Bandaged Dogic?)

JFonS: Estic content de veure que hi ha uns quants catalans en aquest fòrum. D'on ets? :D

Are you sure that the result will be a Dino Cube? I'm talking about 2 colour pieces, not three (Dino).
Quicksolver: I like your idea. Can someone design it for us? :mrgreen:

No sé si es que no estic entenent bé la pregunat però si ajuntem les diferents punxes d'un Dino Star de la mateixa manera que en l'Alexander Star obtenium un cub:

I don't know if I'm misunderstanding the question but if we join the tips of a Dino Star the same way an Alexander Star does we get a cube:
