Well, you could mod it in to an octahedron! That has like eight sides!

I quite like the look of the Great dirhombicosidodecahedron, which at 124 faces should keep you occupied.

On a more serious note, just use google and wikipedia and find something you like.

In my opinion, a Great disnub dirhombidodecahedron is a better choice than the Great dirhombicosidodecahedron. It has 204 faces. :lol:

I just printed this and it's fairly cheap. It's not exactly "modding" but it's still a neat final result.

Is that a true rhombic dodecahedron? If so I would like to order one too at one point :)
edit: looks good, but is it kinda of axised or something?

It's a true RD and it would technically be a "slice" puzzle.

I can provide stickers to anyone who wants to make one.

If someone can make a reference CAD drawing of the shape or the other one that was mentioned (those colors in the Wikipedia diagram are distracting) I will give it a go.

In my opinion, a Great grand stellated 120-cell is a better choice than the Great dirhombicosidodecahedron or the Great disnub dirhombidodecahedron. It has 720 faces. :lol: :lol:

I am not looking for anyone to die from blood loss should they attempt to handle it.
