Andromeda Dodecahedron Unbandaged is a puzzle based on the geometry of the pentagonal hexecontahedron. I called it the Andromeda Dodecahedron Unbandaged to highlight it's relationship to my previous Andromeda Cube, which is based on the pentagonal icositetrahedron. The unbandaging allows the pieces near the face centers to exchange places with the corners of the puzzle. Unlike the Andromeda Cube, there is no overhang bandaging on the same face with the Andromeda Dodecahedron, so pieces can be exchanged between axes on the same face. Andromeda Dodecahedron is a jumbling-only puzzle with 60 axes of rotation, making it a beast to solve.

Other Items Needed:

Dye: If you want the puzzle to be black, you can dye the pieces yourself with a nylon dye such as RIT or Dylon, or you can have i.materialise dye it for you for a small extra charge (this option is definitely worth it!).

Stickers: Please contact me for the sticker template. If you want professionally cut stickers, I recommend Oliver’s Stickers or Chewie's Custom Stickers.

Screws: Sixty 12mm M3 pan head screws required, available in hardware stores or on the web.

Springs: Sixty springs needed, available in web puzzle shops. I get mine from HK Now Store.

Degree of Difficulty:

Assembly: Moderately difficult to assemble.

Solving: Very difficult to solve.


Andromeda Dodecahedron Unbandaged turns very nicely, and the mechanism is very stable.

Have fun!

Welcome! My goal when designing puzzles is to create geometries that are visually striking and have a complexity belied by their apparent simplicity. Many of my puzzles use odd axis systems, and exhibit strange properties such as jumbling and shape-shifting. Enjoy!
