Hello,

I finished to make the Triacontahedron from Megaminx at last.
I finished it to fifteen colours.
And I got some photos includes pair shot with Carter's Triacontahedron.

In this connection, this puzzle's shape is near about sphere, then it's difficult to rotate. X-)

P.S.
I forgot to announce this puzzle's name.
I (and my friends) call it to 'Diamond Triacontahedron'.
Because 3x3x3 Rhombic Dodecahedron was called other name 'Diamond Dodecahedron' from diamond gemstone's shape.
This puzzle's face is similar about Diamond Dodecahedron, then I named it to 'Diamond Triacontahedron'. :)

Number one reason why near-round or irregular puzzles drive me batty: Hard to manipulate. :wink:

Great job there. Making stickers must have been tiring!

I really like the pairing with Carter's very cool triacontahedron as well. Makes a very nice contrast.

It's gorgeous! I love the optical illusion of the cubes sticking out of the puzzle. Great job!

I made a 6 colors variation.
It's so simple colors, but the corner parts are unique.
Parity errors are existed only same color edges.

Looking at them from different angles is like looking at different solids...!

I am not very experienced when it comes to the large variety of twisty puzzles, but the illusion on these ones is priceless! :D

Sorry for my wondrous about it.
The six colors version was ordered from my friend previously
(when I started to make the fifteen colors version), then I am
making it with fifteen colors version. :wink:

It can be made about four to six weeks.
Because I can make them on weekend's night and Sunday's daytime only.
But I have a sticker cutting machine, then the stickers can be cut easily.

Hello RJTrubiksman,

Do you have a Megaminx ?
If you have it, you can imagine so easily.
The edges were cut to angled, and corners were like too.
And pentagonal center was extended, then becomes upper shape.

This extention likes Rhombic Dodecahedron from 3x3x3.
