The fourth puzzle in my Radiolarian series of face turning icosahedra (leaving out a minor one).

This is another puzzle I sketched up in 2010, but I never finished the parts or printed it, and I was beat to the punch by Eitan Cher (pirsquared). His version has been called DeFTI and Eitan's Star. I'm showing this version with his permission.

My version has an identical mechanism to my Radiolarian 3, and only the outer cuts are modified to change the relative sizes of the parts. Turning is very nice.

I show the jumbling in the video.

Thanks!

Beautiful! I'm usually a fan of black puzzles, but it's refreshing to see a nice, clean, white one.

Your designs are fantastic.

What do you mean with "minor one"?

I think the Cornered Radiolarian?

I assembled last night the one I have missed until yesterday: The Radiolarien III. Greg made a design for me.

Interesting! I updated my radiolarian 3 design and am making it available today I hope. I just want to be sure it can be ordered polished.

Radiolarian 2 is available now on Shapeways for $299, so check it out if you'd like that as well!

Additional I show a picture with all differnt Radiolarians.

In one picture you can see the face turnings.

I hope the Cornered Radiolarian will be available at shapeways, too. The Radiolarian I is a litte bit different to Jason's.
