Hi,

This is my second puzzle of the day, and my first entry to the Shapeways Summer Puzzle Building Competition.

I is called the capsule puzzle due to it's shape. This is the equivalent of a shape modification of an eight part puck.

It is very small, as you can see in the video :) -->2cm diameter, 3cm height

It requires a bit of sanding on the eight puck parts, and this takes about 20 seconds per part :P

The pictures explain a lot, but there is something i need to add:

After my Pentultimate auction, I will ask Shapeways to print a batch of puzzles so I am taking pre-orders now:

WSF: 25$ assembled and stickered and 2$ shipping to Europe 6$ to U.S (and rest of the world)
BSF: 27$ assembled and stickered and same shipping costs

If you want a white one, just add +1w in your somment, or +1b if you want black

I hope you enjoy the puzzle's pictures and the videos!

Yo can buy at shapeways: DIY version

Unboxing

Interesting puzzle, though I think it should be a little bigger.

Actually in your hand it feels the right size :)

It feels good to have this puzzle in your hand, because its shape is really unusual and the row of moving pieces is just the size of your pinkie ^^. i don't know it just feels great in your hand :P

I don't know how to say this innocently but I believe that depends on the size of your hand.
