This twisty puzzle is an idea of Bram Cohen. The puzzle has an uncanny resemblance with a Rubik's Cube, but it has a twist. It has only five rotation axes, one of which is at an angle of 45 degrees to the others.

@PuzzleMaster6262 All five sides move independently. When one triangle is turned by 135 degrees, then still two out of three side moves are possible.

How does this puzzle work in relationship to the top and the opposite side triangle centers? Wouldn't they have to rotate together in order for side moves to happen?

You would be buying a unique 3D-printed piece of mathematical art. Please do not mistake my work for cheap mass-produced toys. Oskar

Why is this $400? I did not expect it to be more than $25. Is there a way I can get one of these for much cheaper?
