The Heritombo Cube is a shallower cut variant of the Helicopter Cube with straight cuts that reveals the edge centers and face centers. The name comes from a diminutive helicopter.

You may notice the edge caps don't want to quite sit flush, but it's just a print tolerance issue. The design is not fudged. I could sand each cap but I think I'll just print toleranced replacement caps.

Yikes! I like this a lot, the general shape reminds me of a Camouflage cube, but those jumbling moves, as usual, boggle my mind. Keep up the good work.

Yep, that's the origin of the name! I like the sound of it. :)
Thanks Gus.

Wow, very interesting, the edges are those revealed by the Curvy copter, right? And the Centres are stationary like a 333 RC. Does the shape affect jumbling? We need to see a video for that I guess?

Are these two puzzles that have different color schemes? I am having trouble understanding where each color is in relation.

Yes, they have different schemes. I matched one of my old cubic 335 puzzles before I remembered the HC ended up with a different scheme.
