yes, yes, yes, yes!
I was just waiting for someone to make v-cube mods. I don't believe there has ever been a v-cube 5 mod to date, good job!
Make more, like a 7x7 rhombic dodecahedron.

If I died right now I would die a happy man... :mrgreen:

No, it was built from a V-Cube 5 (using lasercut plastic sheet to build the new parts).
