Hi,

after looking at an older and similar picture I recognized that one size was missing and therefore I built it.
Can anybody guess which on it is?
Can anybody guess which other puzzle I added on my build-list immediately afterwards?

Andreas

I'll make a guess at the second shape as it looks like a transition between shapes 1 & 3.

The end of the sequence would continue with a truncated octahedron, then octahedron.

I would guess the second from the left as well.
And the puzzle you made afterwards was a Trajber's Octahedron based on it, which size should be between the one made with extension only the one based on the middle cube.

The second from the left is the new one. 3x3, (new), truncated corners only(in the database), cuboctahedron, truncated trabjer's octahedron.

And as for the second question, i'm guessing the truncated trabjer's octahedron?

Yes. The second from left is the new one.
Marco guessed right. The appropriate Octahedron was started yesterday with another really new (but stupid) puzzle and 2 half-new puzzles.
@Justin: I guess the row can be continued with another puzzle, but not another time, because there would be no corners left to turn. Don't you think so?

I want to show a new group picture:
Every Truncated Cube from 0.0 to 2.0 with their alloted octahedrons.
Enjoy and forgive me the bump.

omg, Andreas, that photo makes me extremelly jealous.....

Such a PERFECT job man, did you use molds or just plastic sheets?

Really, congratulations on your work.

David

What's different about the octahedrons? Except for size?

@David Calvo:
No plastic sheets. I used a mixture of
1. truncated and attached cubies
2. Apoxie sculpt

@joey:
They are all functioning like a 3x3x3.
No differences except the size. Isn't that enough? :P

@elijah516:
Look at the 5 truncated cubes. I made the octahedrons by extending the alloted truncated cubes.
