since a Hexaminx is a transformation of a dodecahedron into a cube shape I asked myself if somebody already created/invented a puzzle which transformed an isocahedron into a dodecahedron or even into a cubic form?
Does anybody know if a puzzle like this already exists? If not, do you think it is possible?
Yes. Bauhinia is a vertex-turning dodecahedral transformation of a face-turning icosahedron. I solve it using the same algorithms I developed for the Radiolarian 3.
Here is a family portrait of a jumbling move applied identically to four related puzzles:

From left to right we have:
Eitan's Star - Face Turning Icosahedron
Bauhinia - Vertex Turning Dodecahedron
Radio Cube 3 - Edge and Vertex Turning Cube
Radiolarian 3 - Face Turning Icosahedron
