Axis Icosahedron II
Click a thumbnail to see its larger version and description.
An icosahedral 3x3x3 "axised" within its solid.

This puzzle is part of a series of five. All five puzzles are 3x3x3s with the shape of a platonic solid. Compared with the already existing 3x3x3s of the respective shape these puzzles are "axised". That means their axis system is rotated within the solid.
The cube-version of this series is the wellknown "Axis Cube". The octahedron version has been built under the name "Octahedron Axis".
All three new members were completely 3d-printed including the mechanism. No extensions were used. A 57 mm-sized cube can be placed exactly inside each shape.
Edge length: 67 mm
Weight: 280 grams
