I made a transparency's variation cube.
Bottom is same of Trajber's cube, and side and top is same of truncated dodecahedron.

And I finished them to 8 + 1 color, top is purple, and side is sequency,
white -> light blue -> blue -> green -> yellow -> orange -> red -> pink -> white.

It's not interest for puzzle, but interest for interior. ;)

Great Idea! I had an idea close to this, but I ended up completely changing it and it's still not filled or stickered. I need to finish it! It's got alot of the same shape, but other than that, it's completely different. Anyway, enough about my puzzle. Great build! I really like the stickers.

It is a fully functional 3x3. Just the pieces have been cut up.

And the last photo is scrambled.

This is new (?) scrambled image, trixter. ;)
Lower bulge is the extended center.
And left back and upper back's non-sticked face is extended edge's inner face. Upper back's inner through the yellow sticker.

Perhaps you know, base cube is transparency 3x3 DIY.
Rough cut before fill inner, and close the cut faces by transparency
Pla-repair. (Pla-repair is so expensive, then I can't use to fill all. X-)

Lower center's extended part was made by Pla-repair, too.
Extended edges were made by some surplus (cut) parts, and
few Pla-repair.

There are two parity errors.
One is the angled corners. Those have hidden directions, then if start to solve from lower (sharp) side, the angled corners hide the parity error of three sides corners.
Another is the angled edges. Those have too, then if start to solve from upper (round) side, the angled edges hide the parity error of two sides edges.

Yes, it is a little interest to solve, it becomes a little difficult than normally 3x3 cube by angled corners and edges. ;)

Sorry, the lower sharp center and two sides edges are so difficult to make, then I don't think to make for sell it.
