Another great mod Claus. Since the circle pieces now have a visible orientation, this must make it harder than a standard crazy cube? Or, since all the circles are now unbandaged, easier?

Interestingly, if you rotated all the circle faces by 90 degrees, you still get a dodecahedron.

Cross Cube from Crazy Cube made into Dodecahedron.
Beautiful.

@Claus: Can you provide such an image?

I am sorry to nothing more useful to add.

Fantastic!

Claus, do you have one of the new Cross Cubes or any from that series? I'm wondering if the parts could be modified to replace the outer pieces of that puzzle.

Thanks to all.

Here is the picture, with all faces were turned 90 degrees.

Jared, I think it will work with one of the new puzzles by sanding down the pieces.

I would love Calvin to release a mass-produced version of this!

like this you have a 5 layered puzzle basically right? But you don't necessarily need to unbandage the all of inner circles then you could use different planet configurations in conjunction with unbandaged circles which would constantly switch which outer layers can move independently and which ones are bandaged to inner slices, correct?

or am I wrong?
