Alternative Truncated Sphere D8

This is another solution for the Truncated Sphere D8, different from the one based on a regular octahedron.

This die is inspired by the repulsion force polyhedra. In fact, the underlying polyhedron (not rounded) is a trapezohedron. It looks like the shape that can be obtained through this technique with 8 points repulsing each others.
But in this case, I calculated the positions of those points to have a maximal radius for the circles resulting from the intersection of this underlying polyhedron with a sphere. The result is a truncated sphere with 8 circular faces of same radius.

This die is made of a shell of 1.5mm that contains support material to make it heavier. The engraved numbers have a 0.75 mm depth.

Available Truncated Sphere Dice: D4, D6, D8, D9, D10, D%, D11, D12, D14, D15, D16, D17, D18, D20, D24, D32, D33
Alternative shapes: alt D8, 3-fold D10 (rounded), 3-fold D10 (pointed), 4-fold D10, 5-folded D10 (pointed)
Coming soon: D22, D50
Related dice: Concave D4, Concave D6, D4 Shell, D8 Shell.

@rmahood Sorry, the rendering is correct (numbers on vertices), not the picture. This is an old picture: previously I was offering 3 kinds of numberings and among them the was this option, "numbers on the faces" (so you had to check under the die what the result was). I will remove it. Sorry again for the confusion.

The model doesn't look like the photo... which one is correct?

Thanks :) This one is based on a Tetragonal Trapezohedron: http://mathworld.wolfram.com/TetragonalTrapezohedron.html
Superb!
