I have designed a second version of my Holey Octahedron, originally designed by David Calzone. It was designed for SLS 3D printing.

I am constructing a webpage detailing the building of the puzzle. A video will also follow shortly.

No. There is no tolerance in this puzzle at all. If there was I would have decreased it. The changes are:
- Hollowed out parts for cheaper printing
- Thinner parts (thin features are difficult to cast but give more design freedom and are cheaper to print)
- Core made in one half instead of two (again, casting consideration)

I've added a video to show the movement. The movement is really nice and smooth!
