Looks like a stretched Greenhill's Octahedron. Pretty cool, though.

Pretty Cool! I guess another series is coming. :D

I assume this series has all dodecahedral cuts?

Hey Andreas, very nice.

Maybe I'm too Star Trek addicted, but a little bit more and you have created a Galileo transporter :) My wife would be very happy for that!!

Kind of. I call this cutting technique "sharp edges". And: Yes. If you apply 12 of these cuts in an appropriate pattern you get what I call "Sharp Edges Dodecahedron" or "Sharp Edges 1810452882060" where 1810452882060 is the cutting signature.
The first puzzle where I used this cutting technique (accidentially) was the Cheops Cube which signature is AA000.

There are 355048 different cutting signatures possible, where I have already ignored symmetries...
The number of variants with at least 5 non-trivial symmetries is 67.
But if you allow me to restrict me even more...
