is this like a cubeoctahedron made from a hexaminx?
It is great!!
However I would even sticker the little black parts that you left unstickered. I bet it would look better.
Still. This looks insanely cool.

Some month ago I started to cut down Greg's Mini Hexaminx.

I thought that the patterns are not really interested.

But now I see that it is looking FANTASTIC.

@Claus: How cruel is that?
You did that to a puzzle coming out of your own 3D-printer?

To all others:
This is NO Hexaminx-mod! I would never dare to truncate such a beautiful puzzle. I modified a megaminx from scratch and its result was far inferior to Tony's original.

Regarding the stickers:
The stickers would reveal the imperfections of my build. Take the missing stickers as statement of my ongoing shame to put it beside an original Hexaminx.
