Very cool that you showed all the different cuts you made. This could be helpful for anyone wanting to make a triacontahedron mod. Very nice work.

Interesting-looking shape!
A beautiful puzzle.

Have you fully scrambled and solved the Curvy Triacontahedron? It looks very complicated to solve.

One of your best mods!!!!

No - this is your best mod.

Do you remember? I asked you at the GCD for the cut lines to build a Triacontahedron. Thanks for the storyboard to do this.

I love your pecision to sand down this shape out of a 57mm cube.

No. Although I started as solver I became a coward while transforming into a builder.

I kept silence on that day because I wanted to make this first. The speed you present new creations convinced me to pursue this.

There is no reason to keep this method silent anymore because as stated above this puzzle is a slot filler and for that series I do not need to transform another hexahedron into a rhombic triacontahedron.
Does anybody remember what series I speak about.

By the way: I want to answer my own unasked question:
It weighs 117 grams.
The diameter is known.
