This is a 4x4x4 in the form of a Rhomic Dodecahedron 12 regular sides), for this puzzle I choice to cut the corner and edges and make only a buildup on the centers. It is possible to build-up on a hole face, but than the puzzle would become very large.   This shape is easy to make, the cuts are at an angel of 45 degrees, and four faces connecting at there point form a square, so it has also 90 degree angles.


The edge parts, cut an edge in halve and fill the hole.

you need to fill the holes.  I use a low power solder iron (15Watt) and the spare plastic from the revenge. I use the solder iron to melt the plastic and fill the holes in the edges and corners.

I will build the build-up for the center from black milliput
