Attention: This modification is not by me but by my friend Jerry, aka Yezi as Chinese name. He don't have a TP account & don't know much English at all. So he ask me to make a post & translate for him. For the original post on mf8 forum you may take a look at here.

Here is my translation:

Recenty my puzzle friends they all try to do some modification, and so I want to try some too. I found a 4-axis octahedron from my cabinet, I think I should use this as material.

Tools I used including knife, sanding paper, scissor & glue, not to mention of course some pvc plastic sheet & some surplus stickers from Dayan GEM II.

First of all, Rip off all stickers from the octahedron, take out six corner pieces. Second, Sand those six plate which originally from the corner pieces. Third, cut & sand some pvc sheet to make them have appropriate size with the plates. Last, final sanding, cleaning, assembling & stickering.

Isn't it so easy? Well the hardest part is sanding. I have to sanding & test assembling many times to make the pvc sheet appropriate. Patient is the most important part. Hereby showing some pics, hope you like it.
