This is my latest puzzle. It is a Face Turning Pentagonal Bifrustum. This puzzle jumbles and required a small amount of fudging. If you have a questions feel free to ask!

Here is a link to the video! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUjmw4Q48ZY&feature=youtu.be

Very interesting puzzle!

It looks like it would be quite a fun challenge to try solving.

Similarly to other jumbling face-turning puzzles, can the medium and long edges be unbandaged into 2 and 3 pieces respectively?

Beautiful.

How about "Fat Pentum" for a name suggestion? :D

Thanks for the comments!
Yes this puzzle can be unbandaged and I might unbandage it eventually.

Thanks for the name suggestion!

It really reminds me of Eric's Unbandaged Rhomdo. So many great, very challenging puzzles lately!

Looks good! I believe that I recognize the geometry.
