This is a beautiful small puzzle I missed in my collection.

Now is the family complete. Thank you Greg.

The other puzzle in the backround is a 2x2x2 and Helicopter Barrel with peaks. I have to sand it a little bit for better moving.

Greg designed this one year ago.

I didn't design this one year ago, I designed it one month ago as a V2 since I got solidworks now :) Thanks for the topic Claus I really like it :D

I like it very much! I want all the prisms and so my question is: Is it for sale?

Thanks Andreas, I appreciate it :)

Claus the edge length is in fact 30mm I'm not a fan of irregularity :P

That puzzle is beautiful! I would like to see a deeper cut variation on this in the future.
