Ultra-X

The first puzzle which implements three axis systems in one.

This puzzle is a hybrid of three different puzzles. It fuses all three regular axis systems the hexahedral geometry allows without leading into a shape-changing puzzle. These axis systems are:
Face turning hexahedrons; deepcut in this case => 2x2x2
Cornerturning hexahedrons; Dino Cube
Edgeturning hexahedrons; Helicopter Cube

In full hexahedral shape this puzzle would have been more complex. Therefore the inventor designed a Super-X (the first hybrid puzzle; compared with this one the moves of the edgeturning hexahedron are left out) in shape of cuboctahedron. In this shape adding the cuts for the third axis system was easier since these twists move only 2 pieces.
