Is this hand made?
If you don't post the pictures, I will not believe that it is hand made.
It's very beautiful.
Great.

:shock:
What a Clean build and awesome looking puzzle, I don't have any chance to use plasting sheenting for a mod. It's too hard for me to manipulate. I would be more happy if I can see the truncations for this puzzle. :D

After several years of modding, building and collecting I have yet to understand how to cut like this.
I would just love if you would share your technique.
do you simply sand down? Or do you use a saw? If you use a saw how to you know you are cutting straight? If you use sand paper how do you know that you sand down correctly? Do you sand to near goal and then correct?
It looks so clean, both the cuts and the final product.
Vey nice!

Amazing.
Does anybody know the solids name?
I can see that the pentagons are not regular.

It is a Truncated Triakis Tetrahedron (the same solid that my Skyglobe puzzle has).

Really beautiful puzzle. I like it the most when it still was stickerless... amazing build quality. :D

I think the shape is the same as Timur's Skyglobe, which would make it a truncated triakis tetrahedron.
Edit: aww, sniped by Timur by 2 minutes :D

You can see that from the above images? Taking into account you are looking at 2D images with perspective... I don't how you could tell that without taking a ruler to the actual puzzle. Those pentagons look "close" to regular to me. I guess maybe you worked out the geometry from JeongEC's image.

No. I just looked at it and said "This can't be regular". And the only solid with regular pentagons and hexagons I knew is archimedean which this wasn't. => Something had to be irregular here.

The shape is not a truncated triakis tetrahedron. For starters, that shape has 16 sides and this one has 14. The best way of describing this shape is that this is to a hexagonal prism as a dodecahedron is to a pentagonal prism. It has the same dodecahedral ring as a dodecahedron, but has a hexagonal face on top rather than a pentagon.

Actually, I think I was wrong. :P

Sweet puzzle! It looks so clean. I am very envious of people such as yourself who an produce such fantastic looking puzzles. Well done. :)
