A face turning dodecahedron with 9 (!) cuts parallel to each side.

This is a face turning dodecahedron of ridiculously high order, equivalent to a 19x19x19.
The design of the puzzle was inspired by Matt’s yottaminx and Oskar’s 17x17.
The biggest change to the floating anchor mechanism compared with the predecessors was to change the direction of the “hooks” each part has. That allowed for the parts to be printed in an orientation that minimized the need for support material in FDM printing. He also added a kind of foot to 25% of the center pieces that prevents them from twisting in place and also helps with sorting. Making the puzzle stickerless spared the inventor placement of 5412 stickers.
Overall this project took a little under 100 hours from start to finish witch was a lot faster than expected. Pieces: 4863
Edge length: 140 mm
Weight: 7900 grams
