Distorted Dodecahedron
Click a thumbnail to see its larger version and description.
A uniformly-colored 3x3x3 in shape of a non-platonic dodecahedron.

This puzzle was made by truncating an Axis Cube. The creator did not wanted to build a true platonic dodecahedron and therefore the cutting angles were a bit different this ideal truncating scheme.
The resulting solid has twelve pentagonal sides but none of them are regular pentagons which gave the puzzle the name "distorted dodecahedron". Every single piece has an unique shape. Therefore the puzzle would not need stickers at all. They were added in a single color just for aesthetic reasons.
Diameter: Ca. 58 mm. Can't be precisely measured.
Weight: 93 grams
