A Megaminx transformed into the shape of rhombic dodecahedron though on three faces the puzzle still looks like the original megaminx.
The megaminx is a puzzle in shape of a dodecahedron, a platonic solid. The rhombic dodecahedron is a catalan solid. Although both solids have twelve faces they have two different symmetry groups. Therefore a shape transformation like this always leads into a shape changing puzzle.
The first shape transformation of this kind is the Rhombicinx which tries to preserve as much symmetry as possible.
The MegaRD is "axised" compared with the Rhombicinx which means it is rotated inside its solid. Two of the puzzles corners pieces almost look like as if they were taken from the original megaminx but they had to be modified too.
