A not so good build but I'm still happy with the good turning of the puzzle. I used a DS 5x5 and his will be my last 5x5 modification. Hope you all will like it. :)

I like the puzzle, but the name is misleading.
A cube means a hexahedron.
I dont know the true name for this shape but its close to an octahedron.

Very nice.
What are the edge lengths? (Plural!)
What is the puzzles weight?

For referencing purposes:

Oh, I'm sorry for the mistake, maybe my mind was just engrossed with the idea of Axis Greenhill's cube that I shared with Andreas.

@Andreas: the four edges mesures 9.3 cm and the other eight edges measures 8.1cm.
