This looks incredibly cool. I'd call it something like "Glass Kewb" as it looks like a skewb :)
How did you make it?

That is really beautiful!

I'd suggest a name along the lines of 'Refraction Cube'.

Very Beautiful! I want to suggest "Illusion Cube" at first but found this name is already applied to another puzzle. So may be "Phantasy Cube" or "Illusion Box"?

I think you did a really nice work, including photographing!

Wow!

With respect to this puzzle I suggest to name it "Rhombic Dodecahedron in Cube"

This is so clean and well done. How did you manage to do this? There need to be more puzzles like this.

This clear plastic is just too acurate.
Looks like a Box and the cuts are only illusion from reflections or so.

Cool puzzle! I love this type of puzzle. What I really want to see is a megaminx in a hexaminx.

This is really a cool puzzle! I would call it the "Diamond cube" or something similar. :)

I would love to see the look on non-twisty-puzzlers when they see this! It looks stunning. The most fitting name that came to my mind was the "Showmanship Cube".

The look on this particular twisty-puzzlers face would have been worth seeing when I first opened the thread.

Astonishingly beautiful puzzle. Incredible.

Like your other works with clear resin, these are really works of art!

WOW!!!
This is really a very cool mod. Fantastic idea and realisation.
It shows, that not every exciting puzzle is necessarily a new 3Dprinted mechanism..
A Must-Have :)

I would suggest using word "Ice" naming any puzzle of such type.
