Fractured Rainbow 3x3x3
Above:Solved
Click a thumbnail to see its larger version and description.
A 3x3x3 truncated on all eight corners in a strange but symmetric way.

All eight corners of the 3x3x3 are truncated for this modification. Two different cuts are used four times each. The resulting modification has four squares, two rectangles, eight triangles of two different sizes and is quite symmetric although not as symmetric as the Half Truncated Cube.

The images shown here steem from a duplicat made by Roger Maier in the same year.

The "almost confused pillow cube" (see the third image) was the predecessor of this puzzle and the first time for the inventor to demonstrate on of the used truncating techniques.
