Couldn't help myself. :D I've wanted to mod the Bauhinia dodecahedron into an icosahedron ever since it was first announced, since it seemed such an obvious transformation. I never got one until January, and I've been working on my Hexaminx. But after seeing RFLo9Puzzles' Non-regular Icosahedron I was inspired to at least start yesterday. There's a simple joy in slicing into a new puzzle, and I just needed a small break from my Hexaminx.

I'm still trying to fine-tune the Hexaminx, so this probably won't be updated for a while until that's been completed.

Hello All!
This is my first post, and I'm super excited! Anyways, I've been really curious as to how this puzzle would look once completed so I can't wait to see this completed! Do you know if anyone has like a computer generated image of what the finished product will look like? I'd love to see it!

Thanks,
ZiEV

Look for Jason Smith's radiolarian 2 or 3. Then imagine a curvy version
