A pyraminx turned into a tetraminx turned into a distant relative of an antiprism and the Draken. Please help me determine the type of symmetry it has. There are 14 sides so technically it is an irregular Tetradecahedron. Each of the main faces are the same shape, the other faces follow a sort of pattern. It is for sale and would be a great first custom puzzle for a newer collector. Make me an offer via pm.

Thank you :)

I'm speechless. This is one of the very few puzzles that I have a hard time visualizing. Great modding job!

Looks like a fun shape. But it has more sides/colours than pieces, so difficult to work out when it is solved. Can you post a picture of the puzzle in its solved state? :lol:

Tough question.
The symmetry group is D2d which has (in this variant) 4 elements:
Identity
Rotation by 180°
Rotoreflection by 90°
Rotoreflection by 270°

The bandaged 3x3x3 with signature 03C00000000909 has the same symmetry.
Red opposite Orange; Blue opposite White
