Hi everybody, :D

Here are new applets for edge-turn dodeca- & icosahedra.
I think the first one is identical with the one described at the bottom of Jaap's
Ideas for other puzzles page.

Cool these are awesome!!

The middle one is the Magic Crystal aka Brillic, right?


Sweet stuff. Thanks for making these. Even with my vast collection, I still don't have all - and these are a great way for all to play with these odd strange puzzles! ;)

I think the one in the middle turns differently to a Brillic, the slices seem a little deeper.

The faces are completely different patterns too.

No it isn't. Look at the cuts and the way that it moves.

D'oh!! You and Darren are right. I was just looking at one side. :oops: :oops:

Didn't notice the opposite side moving a deeper slice!

WOW :shock:

Yes that is. It just turns the top slice of any face. I think it's 15 pieces...

The Corner and edge pieces on top - 10 and then the 5 edge pieces below it.

Thank you guys for comments. :)

I don't know how it is called, not even if it has already a name.
But the last two are respectively dodeca- & icosahedral version of the one called "Little Chop"(3.3.4 at my index page).
In all these three, the object is cut into two equal halves around any given 6 or 15 axes binding two edges, and two pieces sharing a edge are separable.

The first one looks really interesting! It looks like a step up from the Bevel/Helicopter cube, similar to the 3x3-Megaminx sequence.

Now, I can't solve the Bevel cube yet, so I have some work to do before getting to that one. :)
