I used 1mm styrene sheet. All 20 non-core pieces had to be modified. Some of the plastic pieces were quite small and fiddly to make - the first few were a bit rough, but things got better as I progressed and gained experience.

Turning quality is the same as the underlying Rainbow Cube. I'll get a video uploaded this weekend when I have more spare time.

That's one really good looking puzzle, and again a professional finish.

A very nice idea and a perfect mod.
I always hope you'll (duplicate and) sell some of your puzzles.
They are of outstanding quality!

I took a few pics of the corner extensions/truncations in the early stages, as they were the most awkward. Too small and they'd leave a gap, too big and they'd clash with the edges.
The edge piece truncations/extensions were quite straightforward.
