I made this a while ago and was unsatisfied with the turning. I have redesigned it to hopefully solve all turning issues but lack the funds to reprint. I also have a pillowed version designed as well as cubic and pillowed 24 cubes. No video, just pictures.

Edit: 45mm to an edge, I still do not own a scale.

Excuse me, for I'm not as smart as the average poster on TP forum, but this is a shapemod of a 24 cube, right?

I think you could do just 180 degree turns at first and then do jumbling turns. That would scramble it up good. And I do believe that this is a 24 cube shape mod, because a dodecahedron has 12 faces, and each of these is split in two, and the faces will separate from each other, which makes 24 sections, and a deep cut. So yes, this is a shape mod of the 24 cube, but still it's entertaining.

That was my reasoning exactly, but I wasn't sure, so I thought I'd ask! Great minds think alike? 8-)

Correct. I really like this fact because finnally the Little Chop was made in its "natural shape". It has been a long time.

That looks like my 24-cube mechanism, but with different proportions! Nice design :D
