Hi Twisty Puzzles fans,

Rob's Octahedron is an octahedral variation of Rob's Pyraminx. It is an edge-less Trajber's Octahedron.

Watch the YouTube video.
Buy the puzzle at my Shapeways Shop.
Read more at the Shapeways Forum.
Check out the photos below.

Enjoy!

Oskar

Would a Rob's Rhombic dodecahedron work? It would be the same thing as the Dino Rhombic Dodecahedron but with centers.

Haha! Rox got to play! It's fun. Tricky but fun (for the three moves I knew I could reverse !)

Solvingwise it is equivalent to this:

But the octahedron is way more beautiful.

The Rob's series is so cool.


Do you think Rob's dodecahedron (with megaminx corners and starminx centers) could be made?

I'm not sure, but I agree with you that more should definitely be made.

Nice. I would also suggest the following sticker arrangements for this and the pyramid.
