Cut each plane like a Hexaminx's turning plane. Then, it's an easy turn from a dodecahedron into an I cosahjedron.http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/chronix25/artwork/dodecahedron.3x3x3.bmp

Hi plp70, I think this puzzle can be cut as a Dodecahedron Puzzle but, instead of paste plastic to expand cubies, we just paste plastic to make triangular shape each side

Cube ->dodecahedron -> begin cube vertices truncation but how to increase height of up ?

Once you get it in to an icosidodecahedron you then extend the pentagonal faces (usually with Milliput or some other sculpting material). In brief explanation, stick credit-card thickness pieces of plastic through the cut lines, then build up a chunk of sclupting material over the penmtagonal face. This step doesn't have to be perfect, you just need to san and fill (alot) later. I might be wrong though because I've never really made much mods before :oops:
