The FTRD puzzle is a face turning rhombic dodecahedron with 12 axes of rotation, one through each face. Each face normally turns in 180 degree increments, but the puzzle can also jumble if the faces are turned at less than 180 degrees.

The FTRD puzzle comes as a DIY kit of parts, and you will need to supply your own stickers. The templates for the stickers are available in the instructions forum.

I recommend that unless you are familiar with the process of dyeing these parts, you purchase the puzzle in "Black Strong & Flexible". It costs a bit more than the white material, but it's worth it since the finished puzzle will look and work better. The FTRD puzzle also requires screws and springs to assemble. These can be purchased through a few different online puzzle sellers. The ones I used came from this shop. You'll need two sets of screws (12 total).

Have fun!
