this is my first skewb mod, and although its not perfect i think it looks very nice (except that the bottom isnt as smooth as would have liked). i took the idea of a dipyramid and applied it to a skewb. unfortunatly with the way skewb pieces are made i was only able to make half a dipyramid. tell me what you think :mrgreen:

Really an interesting design!
What about the machanism? Does it turn well or does it get locked frequently? That makes the difference.

Good work!

actually this was all truncation. extension would be a little too difficult for me because im still an amature at building.

thanks for all the kind words guys :D
