Great looking puzzle Clause. Looks a really clean design. I bet those small pieces were a problem.

Can you provide more details please? Hand mod/3D printed, if modified, modified from what, and son on?

Are you serious, a windmill hexakilominx?
I love those star patterns, especially how you stickered it a different color! Are all the 'hidden' [read- stickerless] edges the same shape, or do you need to solve those as well to solve the puzzle?

I think they are not small. there are only small portions of them visible.

Well made Claus.

Here are some more details.

The StarCube based on a Minx. No truncation or cuts only extensions.

My approch was to get a star on two opposite faces.

The small slice on 2 sides was not my goal. I tried a lot of attempts to eliminate this.

The edge lenght of the cube is nearly 80mm.
