Hello all,
for years I had before me a Trajber Octahedron and every time I postponed its execution and finally I've done to become better;

today I present a form which according to my research using Google, Youtube and the museum was never worked on any puzzle,
if I'm not mistaken, so far have been presented the following dipyramidal shapes:

Trigonal, tetragonal, hexagonal, dodecagonal, dipyramids or bipyramids,

the shape in question is an octagonal dipyramid a total of sixteen sides;

for the puzzle I thought a 16-color pattern that will provide to start cutting now, the puzzle wheel perfectly (in my opinion much better than the basis)
as you can see the shape is perfect, respect the photos of the completed puzzle the marketplace post and the video i will update tomorrow by morning
barring unforeseen circumstances, as already said the price will fluctuate between 85/90 Eur (110/115 Usd) most likely 90.

if I have time later i'll place a picture of some sides completed;

At the moment is all
best regards
Rafael

I do not know of any octagonal dipyramids which might have been built so far.
The third image remembers me of this:

I want to see it finished.

Yes, hello Mr. Nortmann
Sorry for delay, I took a look on it, there is an obvious similarity,
I deserve one? :D

I've added photos yesterday and video is available since some minutes:

Hello Dave, thank you very much for the appreciation, the colors are the result of much study, not always gone well but I think now, after over 70 Puzzles created I do not think I have more doubts about colors.
Have anice time & a happy holidays

Hello Konrad, thank you very much, I also love (look :) ) the Via Shapeways printed products are usually something new from the base, but unfortunately are out of my range (for personal use), I answered you some minutes ago :) ;
Have a nice time
