I have studied 2D Cad at my school for 1.5 years now, and I figured it was time to teach myself 3D, so as a result, here is a puzzle that I have not seen before:

It is a 1x2x3 but with 4 "points" that resembles a shuriken (throwing star) when assembled. You need 8 of the blue peices, 2 of the green, and 1 of the red. It even has a hole through the center just like the real ones do.

Let me know what you think, concidering that I designed this thing in about 1 hour.

EDIT:

P.S., thank you to TomZ for letting me in on a few commands.

EDIT² (while im thinking about it)

Put all the blue peices in the red, and all of them in the 2 greens. glue the 2 greens together on the railing system. (if that makes sense)


Final Edit:
I got the tolerances all taken care of, and I re-made the edge part. It looks much more like a shuriken now.


Re-Final Edit:
I found a design flaw with the green peice. I just cut the red peice in half so that the puzzle is assemble-able.

Nice puzzle. Seems equivalent to a truncated domino (2x3x3 by cutting conners).

It looks dangerous. You could get in trouble with security if you bring it along to the airport, school, etc. :wink:
