Curvy Dodecahedron
Click a thumbnail to see its larger version and description.
A Curvy Copter (with the axis system of a rhombic dodecahedron) in shape of a platonic dodecahedron.

This can be considered as the second "identity crisis". The first identity crisis was a puzzle like the Rhombicinx. These two are modified megaminxes (in shape of a platonic dodecahedron) in shape of a rhombic dodecahedron.

The Curvy Dodecahedron goes the other way: It starts with the Curvy Copter which has the axis system of a face turning rhombic dodecahedron. This puzzle was transformed into the shape of a platonic dodecahedron. Since both shape do not share the same symmetry group the puzzle changes its shape.

This is an extensions-only transformation. The distance between two non-adjacent corners equals 57 mm the edge length of the Curvy Copter it was made from.
Edge length: 36 mm (equal to the Rexahedron)
Weight: 407 grams (18 grams more comapred with the rexahedron)
