The concept of the Hexis Cube applied on a 4x4x4
The Hexis Cube is an Axis Cube truncated into a hexagonal dipyramid. All this is done to a 3x3x3.
Applying the same principle to a 4x4x4 results in the Master Hexis Cube named after the 4x4x4 which is also known as Master Cube.
Since the author had no Axis Cube to start with he had to do all three steps by hand:
1. truncate a 4x4x4 into a hexagonal dipyramid.
2. extend the remaining original faces to recreate the hexahedral shape.
3. truncate the solid again on different corners into the shape of a hexagonal dipyramid.
