First it was difficult to play with. But with some springs, silicon and a little bit work is turns fantastic. It makes great fun!!!

That's amazing. Can you give some more details about this? Number of pieces, mechanism and so on? Will this be available on ShapeWays?

I'm an idiot. It's Muffet's not Meffert's. Am I the only one who incessantly makes this error?

Great work, great puzzle!

link to the origional. This is version 2 and I must say I am glad that the changes with the addition of springs worked for you Claus. Thanks a lot for posting this.

This can also be purchased in my shapeways shop.


edit:

PS I am very sorry how often my name ends up disappointing people. :roll: :wink:

Another fantastic puzzle, the turning looks pretty good, but there seems to a misalignment issue; then again, with all these pieces, alignment will always be a problem. Great Job :D

That's an excellent puzzle! It seems like a Dogic with extra turning layers, though the tips being solid takes away one type of turn.

Very nice Claus. I'm very jealous of you. Great design Matthew!

In order to save time uploading and organising you have to buy several kits for one puzzle. Each of those kits cost $36, so you have to buy four of those plus the $66 core to buy the entire puzzle at $210. Although, for us Europeans, the puzzle costs a lot more money. :(

Yes, Even though Shapeways is a great new thing and allows lots of great puzzles to come into being, its still not very cost efficient. It also doesn't help that there is a lot of surface area on this puzzle.

I might have one more secret up my sleeve that is a looooot cheaper. keep your eyes open. :wink:

Also I don't know if anyone heard the news, but the maximum triangle limit has been expanded to 1,000,000 rather than 500,000.

Maybe I can go back and change the files a little bit so everyone doesn't have to order so many different parts.

when you have to buy multiple orders, you also have to pay for multiple dying jobs (BS&F)
Else it's really no problem.

I can't wait to see your secret trick revealed tho :D
