A face turning truncated triakis tetrahedron, a jumbling only puzzle.

This is not the first puzzle in the shape of the Truncated Triakis Tetrahedron (Skyglobe was the first) and is by far not the first puzzle with such or a similar axis system. 4+4 corners cube and its mass produced cousin are the prime examples. But this puzzle demonstrates the axis system the best way as shape and axis system fit perfectly without the puzzle being so complicated as in Skyglobe.
The puzzle allow turns of the four hexagons and the twelve pentagons. At first glance one might think the puzzle is doctrinaire but a closer look to the edges of the pentagons show the difference as do some turns. Images 4 makes it obvious that the puzzle is jumbling only.
A variant with 12 axes (the hexagons can't move) was published in parallel and has its own entry.
It was produced with black body and stickerless.
Edge length: 25 mm
Weight: 190 grams
