3D model description

Version Two of the Reid Dissection (Trisection) of a Cube into Three Zigzag Pieces
This is a second version of the Reid cube dissection. As shown in the figure, the center shape in this specific design is a rhombus. The interior edges are rounded for easy assembly. I have not seen Reid's original model, guessing that it might be this one or the other one I posted earlier.

You need three copies to make a cube. Indeed, there are infinitely many possible variations. Some can be harder to put together than others. I think this one might be more interesting.
