Clematis Tetrahedron
Above:Solved
Click a thumbnail to see its larger version and description.
A hybrid puzzle which combines edge turns with corner turns that allow 60 turns.

This tetrahedron has shallow corner and edge turns. When the corners are rotated 60 degrees, it allows the edge to be rotated again using stored cuts. This also lets the puzzle shapeshift and the scrambled state can look pretty chaotic. This puzzle is essentially a tetrahedron version of the Clematis Cube created by Grant Anderson.
Its mechanism was hard to classify. It was obvious to to classifiy it as "Doctrinaire axis system with fractional angles" but the subcategory was hard to decide. Since the corners of a tetrahedron are equivalent to one halve of the corners of a hexahedron (aka cube) it was classified in that subset.

Edge length: 100 mm
