This is probably the first ever transformation of a Professor Pyraminx puzzle.
I made it by removing two rows from each of the corners. Two remaining parts then had to be modified and recast using silicone rubber and polyurethane resin.
It has eight sides and I have used the same colours again on the four new ones. This does not make it any easier to solve than having different ones. Movement is pretty good and I am very pleased with the way it turned out.
I was unsure what to call it and chose Curviminx simply because there are no external straight lines on it whatsoever.
