A Curvy Compino with four "split" axes that now allow 60�-turns.

This puzzle is a Curvy Compino where four of the axes (corresponding to a tetrahedron) have been split to allow 60 turns. This puzzle is closely related to the Fractured Cube. This puzzle is the result when you assemble the Fractured Cube in such a way that there are 4 six-way vertices (again, corresponding to those of a tetrahedron) around the puzzle.

However, unlike the Fractured Cube, the Fractured Compino does not jumble, nor does it bandage.
One can also turns two corners simultaneously, this allows more freedom while scrambling, as otherwise overhang bandaging would result.

Five years later Jos Romero reinvented the puzzle under the named "Doble Redi", see images 8-10.
