The concept of the Axis Cube applied to a Skewb

The Axis Cube gave the name for a technique of puzzle building. "Axising" means to rotate a puzzle by 120° inside of its solid around a line going through a pair of opposite corners. If the original and resulting puzzle have hexahedral shape the shared volume of both puzzles is always a hexagonal dipyramid.
In this case the axis system of a Skewb was reoriented within the solid. This was presented together with the hexagonal dipyramid made from a skewb.
The images here steem from a sample made by Jose Manuel Garcia Mouzo who reinvented the concept independently and named it "Axis Skewb". Today this is the better known name for this variant.
