sorry, headline was over - so once again......
DESIGN BY THE.DRIZZLE
It took me long sleepless nights to work this puzzle out.
I haven´t been member of this forum, when I first read about this beautiful puzzle.

I think I get infected by the idea of building one of these!!!
Long time I was not on a "puzzle road" but at the beginning of 2010 and the access to a 3d printer I could start again.

I found help - checking the forum - see: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=14128&start=0&hilit=rua+toru

It look so nice:
