So, I was thinking while solving my half-truncated cube, what would it look like if I changed it a little bit. I found out that I had some pieces for the mod I wanted to make but I didn't have enough to make it completely like I wanted. I was able to make one mod with it completely, and then decided that a even more truncated version of that mod would also look cool. So here they are. By the way, have these been done before?

Actually, now that I look at it more, the second one is the same shape of the pillow cube. That's cool!

Well this was just me playing around with my half-truncated cube and some scrap cut pieces and some old pieces from a octagon cube.

I think now I'm going to make an official one though because I like the shape and how it turns. It would not be that hard to solve at all, but would be pleasing to the eye.

We'll see. I plan on making more and better mastermorphix's to sell as soon as I have time.

Brakshow- I have never filled my pieces before cutting and have never had a problem filling. In some ways, ithink its easier to fill after because that way you can fix and accidental jagged cut or mess ups after

I do the same thing. It's quite easy and saves filling the entire thing and having all that you cut off go to waste.
