A face turning cube which allows 45-turns and is doctrinaire.

This is a cubic puzzle which allows 45-degree face turns. Due to its fudged geometry, it behaves like a doctrinaire puzzle. Related puzzles include the Sphere 612 (the "bandaged" version of this puzzle), the Skyglobe (the tetrahedral geometry equivalent of this puzzle), and Evgeniy Grigoriev's recently presented Kaleidoscope Ball which is the tetrahedral equivalent of the Sphere 612. All three have their own entries in the museum.
The inventor originally planned a different colour scheme for this puzzle, but the pentagons had a tendency to spin in place due to their nearly circular shape which makes this impossible. Image 4 shows this alternative colour scheme.
