For this puzzle the creator exchanged pieces of a Windmill Cube and a Fisher Cube (hence the first part of the puzzle's name: WFW) and then truncated the result into the shape of a hexagonal dipyramid.

The hexagonal dipyramid quickly became one of the more popular shapes after its first presentation. After the first presentation virtually all mass produced cubes and many custom cube as well were truncated into this shape.
In this case the creator first exchanged pieces of a Windmill Cube and a Fisher Cube (hence the first part of the puzzle's name: WFW, Windmill/Fisher/Windmill HD) and then truncated the result into this shape.
This puzzle was created as part of a family, the closure of a cycle;
After the creation of their "parents" Fisher & Windmill HD the inventor decided to create a mix to create their direct descendants.
These puzzles contain in them the characteristics of their ancestors and mixing them together you can get all the possible combinations "the offprings" and then close a cycle like this:
