I hope the images speaks for itself:

Together with the SharpEdges3x3x3 this is my 10th trigonal trapezohedron aka rhombohedron. These are the first 8:

So far there is no 11th on the building list. But that does not mean very much.
Taking the past with the 3x3x3 as a guideline I expect this puzzle to be mass produced in two months.

Awesome. This the 4x4x4 version of the 3x3x3 Rhombohedron if I'm not wrong. :shock:

Ah, I would love to see this extended similarly on every side. :)

Very cool!

Most excellent design my good man :) I guess these are all one-off mods for your own collection?

Great work, Andreas!
And - do you see, what rounded stickers add to puzzle?
Maybe these are still original or cut by using the original peeled-off stickers.
I propose to round your other stickers, too. Boring business, indeed, but looks
a bit more professional from my point of view. A win for each puzzle ;)

Cheers - Frank

Yes: It is a 4x4x4 with extensions on 2 faces.

Frank: The stickers are all new and some are rounded because it was inevitable for the pieces under them.
Thank you for not giving me up.

Sorry Claus:
On the current list are
- three platonic solids. (lame, I know)
- three strange solids
- three cubocathedrons
- a shape already realized by me three times.

The photo on the lower left was photshopped (or more precisely: gimped) into the bigger image.
I did this because my collection is seperated over two places. I regularly move some of them from one place to the other to make these photos.

And I did this during the last weekend. Now I can proudly present all ten rhombohedra:
