Melty D is the fourth of a series of four Melted Cube designs proposed by Bram Cohen. Whereas the six axes in a regular Rubik's Cube are at 90 degrees, they are at 85 degrees in de Melted Cubes. The six axes of Melty D can be described as follows. Place three axis with 85 degrees between each pair. Place a second set of three axes with also 85 degrees between them such that the three each have an 85 degrees angle with one of the first set.
The result is an interesting puzzle, that can be fully scrambled according some definitions, but not according to other.
Melty D has threefold rotation symmetry, point symmetry around its origin and chirality. This makes Melty D the most symmetric among the set of four.
