Hi Non-Twisty Puzzles fans,

French Fries is a six-piece burr puzzle with twisted pieces. The object is to take it apart and put it back together again. George Miller called the puzzle French Fries, as it looks like curly fries woven through each other. George built the original prototype on his home 3D printer in California in 2004.

Do you have access to a 3D printer? At home, at school, at the office or at your local Tech Shop? Then you can make your own sample by streaming the puzzle from the LayerByLayer server to your printer. Read more about the LayerByLayer process at General Puzzle Topics.

Watch the YouTube video.
Stream the puzzle to your 3D printer with LayerByLayer.
Check out the photos below.

Enjoy!

Oskar

Are they salted? Well-done? Are they sweet potato fries?

Why should anyone print this puzzle in plastic? Take a potato, cut it and bake it. :!:

^But can it be made on a CNC mill and do CNC mills capable of working with Potato exist? I am all for edible versions of puzzles with food related names, but we do have to take into consideration the limitations of available technology, though this seems like the perfect excuse for an engineer somewhere to start working on making a CNC mill capable of working with potato.
