So this is a mod of a crazy 4x4x4 I into a rhombic triacontahedron? Were the pieces cast from 3D prints? Another great puzzle. Since you started your 3D designer work, how many puzzles have you designed and made yourself?

I love it!
Gus, it looks to me like a handmade, truncation only puzzle, but that might be my eyes deceiving me.

What?
From the measurements it could be truncation only.
But judging from the structure of the surfaces I would say 3D-printed.

Now it is your turn, Claus: Proove us all wrong!

The structure of the surface is important. Here the puzzle was made with extensions only. All extension are 3d-printed.

Gus I have designed and built exactly 90 puzzles. 83 of them I showed in my thread "extreme rare" with all measurement. 3 others I presented incomplete like this or the both Octa platons.
One of the missing four I will give the number 100. Three of them I will show in the next week.

Nice one Claus, I love this shape on a puzzle :)
I still have Andreas' Curvy Triacontahedron on my mind, ever since I saw it in June.
