Hi everyone,

Finally had some time to post this puzzle in the new puzzles topic. It is a Truncated Halpern-Meier Tetrahedron. Thank-you to everyone with help naming this puzzle. The puzzle was made from a Meffert's Pyraminx. All of the pieces were capped with ABS plastic sheet and the truncated parts were filled with black Apoxie Sculpt. The Arlon Vinyl stickers were machine cut. I was going to sticker the insides of the truncated parts but after some use the stickers would most likely rub off so I decided to leave them unstickered. I am just uploading a video now so I will post it when it is ready. Hope you enjoy.

Wow! I never knew how similar a Pyraminx is to a Skewb... It looks really neat. I love how simple it looks. However, as I said in it's other post, I do think you should sticker the interior parts, to give it a more complete look.

That was really good idea SEBUVER. I did a test run last night but then the pieces rubbed against the stickers and it would only be a matter of time before they started pealing off. :(
