The Moving Hole cousin of the Rainbow Cube.

The puzzle resembles the Rainbow Cube which also gave then puzzle its name.
The puzzle behaves as a moving hole puzzle with one spot for each corner of the cuboctahedron for a total of 11 moving pieces in 12 spots. In each state, one of the four pieces adjacent to the hole can move to the hole.
One thing to note is that although each piece individually moves like in a rainbow cube, one can't move three pieces around a triangular face at the same time as a consequence of the shape of the mechanism. The mechanism was indirectly inspired by the nothing grinder, although it ended up being much simpler. Each moving piece is a solid piece with the core being broken up just for convenience.
The puzzle was printed with i.Materialize and stickers cut on a Silhouette Cameo 3.
