I'm making an easiest mod of hexagonal di-piramid.
Only cut one vertex to quarter of center, but it looks a diamond. :)

This is rough cutting and filling, then I need to sand, polish, and make stickers.

Simply amazing. I can't believe it hadn't been done before.

Great idea. One of those ideas that makes me jealous. :(

I don't really care for transparent puzzles. But yeah, since it's in a diamond shape, you have to build it in transparent plastic as well. I'm certain it will look stunning.

Yes, of course I'm making transparency type, too. ;)
But the rough image of transparency is so bad, then I'm planning to contribute when I polished or finished. X-)

Well, he pretty much shows you how he carved down the edges.
Doesn't look easy tho. Lots of filling and sanding on this one.

Yes. Look at that first photo. Take a 3x3 in your hands, hold it with the top facing you so you can see the whole top, and a little bit of the front face, then turn the whole cube to the left 45 degrees.

This is the cutting image from 3x3.
Make hexagonal di-pyramid, and cut the middle line of pramid.
This mod is only need cut, and fill the cavity.

Nice clear pictures of the geometry of the mod within a 3x3 cube, Hidetoshi. I can't wait to see a finished version of this. I realise it is only a small change from a known mod, but that small change makes something so new and very attractive. I think a translucent version will look particularly good.

Funnily enough, if you view the mod from the hexagonal truncated end, the similarities between this and my radiation cube become quite clear!

Amazing :shock:

This is (now I'm making) clear type. :)
Surfaces are only rough sanded, then not smoothly.
I need to polish all surfaces, and make stickers. ;)

Wow... I knew it would look good translucent.

I look forward to seeing your choice of stickers, you always make such subtle choices.

do you think it would work if you made an acrylic version of it?

Not sure how suitable acrylic would be for making pieces out of. In fact I'd have to say it's not your best choice for a medium. If I wanted clear I'd probably go with molded pieces out of a clear polyurethane resin rather than acrylic.

Perhaps acrylic material have a problem, the rubbing faces are not rotated smoothly.

I think some resolve way, transparency resin is one of it.
And other way, make acrylic frame, and use other material, like Pla-repair on the surfaces.

My transparency one is used transparency Pla-repair to fill the hollows.
Pla-repair is a little expensive, then I need to save to use it. ;)
