Is this a centerless 3x3x3 octahedron? It's hard to tell from the angles the picture was taken.

I personally think the Dinoctahedron would be suitable.

Apart from Jurgen Brandt, I wonder who's made a Face Turning Icosahedron like this.

THIS HAS BEEN MADE BEFORE!!!!!!! 8-) http://twistypuzzles.com/articles/spotlight-jurgen/ (1st one)

Sorry, I certainly don't mean to take anything away, I'm just amazed that two people had identical ideas that are actually quite creative.

I'm pretty sure there's some more info to be found on this particular puzzle, apparently called simply Face-Turning Octahedron by Jürgen Brandt, the inventor/designer, but I'm not sure where to look for it.

Remarkable coincidence here :mrgreen:

Peace,
Matt Galla

Oops. :oops: I edited my previous post. I thought it was Katsuhiko for some reason.

It has been made by several people. Still a very nice puzzle! I intend to build this one too along with a Tetrahedron Rainbow cube.

Good job building it over one night! It looks very clean! How well does it move?

After sanding, the puzzle moves great! I LOVE APOXIE SCULPT. Because I am new to making puzzles, this was my first time with Apoxie Sculpt and I was very impressed at the working time.

It looks great but you might want to change the title as it's already been made and named. :D

I think this is called a cornerless octahedron. It is a mod of either a Rainbow cube or a Dino Cube (if you happen to have a spare dino cube lying around, that is).

Very, very well done. I'm amazed that it turns so well, seeing as most Rainbow Cubes turn horribly.

I could imagine that if you used magnets you could make corners. That would indeed make a very interesting FTO, one that I would certainly love to see mass produced. Also a version of that to make a mass produced FTI.

Thanks! You are correct by the way. This mod was made from a rainbow cube.

Chris

Is this cube worth selling? Anybody want one lol.

I would recommend an eBay auction, as it is a very clean, professional looking puzzle, and it could sell for some.

Although it is clean, I am very nervous about selling on eBay because it is not perfect.

If I made this puzzle 100 more times I know for a fact that I would never have a PERFECT puzzle. Tough to get perfect! Need Shapeways for that.

wow, that is an amazing mod, for a work time of a few hours. Did you plate it?
Even if it's not a new design, it brings out the true symmetry of the Rainbow cube. besides, it has overlapping pieces! :D

great puzzle mod, hope to see more (:

Jurgen's was named Face-Turning Octahedron, which is taken already. However, Rainbow Cube is the same concept and thus should be the name. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Perhaps you should be acquainted with the works of Aleh:
ALEH'S BRILIC
ALEH'S BRILICUBE
ALEH'S STARMINX (V1)
ALEH'S MINI MASTER OCTAHEDRON

There are many others of course, but I chose to highlight the ones he has built with no 3D CAD or printing. 100% hand built :)

There are other master builders with similar standards and reputations for hand built work (Tony, Anthony, Hidetoshi, Jin, Smaz, etc.) but it isn't easy to join that club. It is great to see some of the newer members still pursuing this direction when most of the forum seems to be moving on to CAD and printing. Nothing wrong with the new methods (they allow all sorts of new designs) but I would hate to see old fashioned craftsmanship lost to technology.

Dave :)

P.S. Keep up the overnight mods!
