Behemoth

Click a thumbnail to see its larger version and description.
Twelve deep cuts form a deep cut Deltoidal Icositetrahedron. A jumbling only puzzle.

The inventor let himself inspire by the rail mechanisms from Jason Smith.

The geometry of this puzzle is that of a face turning deltoidal icositetrahedron, but an irregular one. The designer modified the shape slightly such that the dihedral angle between two adjacent faces sharing a common 3-fold corner become equal to the angle between two opposite faces sharing a common 4-fold corner, you get this puzzle�s geometry. Image 6 illustrates the geometry of the axis system. It is indeed the same axis system as the Celtic Fraud.
Matt Galle claims the Behemoth is simply a deepcut canonical Triakis Tetrahedron and shares its geometry with 4 Corners Cube, Clover Tetrahedron, Diamond Duet, Bi Yi Niao Cube, Clover Tetrahedron Plus, Collider Tetrahedron, and Jumball. The Celtic Fraud can also be considered a higher-order instance of this geometry.
It consists of 134 pieces.
Diameter: 90 mm
