Hi all!
I have found this ate the puzzle Museum:
http://twistypuzzles.com/cgi-bin/puzzle.cgi?pkey=645

After some drawing I made the same template, but nut just for the cuboctahedron, also for the Rainbow cube, octahedron like puzzles (for example: Skewb diamond, FT- and CT-Octahedron, etc)
And also I made it for cube shape puzzles.

I'm thinking of making them for Tetrahedral (Pyraminx) and dodecahedral (Megaminx) like puzzles as well.

And here are the pictures I made:

template:

Triangle template:

Skewb diamond:

Rainbow cube:

Cube:
3x3x3
Image
2x2x2
Image

Also I need some help, to find the original designer of this template, to ask permission to sell...

WOW Those are just amazing!!!

I love how on the cubes, the 12 fishes actually show the symmetry of the dodecahedron compared to a cube ;)

Yeah it reminds me of a Hexaminx.

Also, I like your idea of making these for other puzzles as well. A pyraminx version would look very nice :)
