Have you tried searching the TP forums yet? :roll: This topic has only recently been started, and there are many more! Asking how to design puzzles is like asking "how do I write a successful book?"

I'm pretty sure this 2 video is many help to you.

It showed how to make normal cube with pillow side and how to make megaminx in Solidworks.
It's Great tutorials to you.

Twisty Puzzles a la Vi is an excellent video to help provide an overview of what to expect when making puzzles. Eitan talks about using the software and making designs, but briefly. Mainly, he walks you through himself making a puzzle from Solidworks design to printed, dyed, and stickered puzzle.

Mainly, the search function on this forum as well as in your preferred search engine can be really helpful. Solidworks is one of the names I hear a lot, but others like Rhino are used too. Solidworks has a ~$150 student edition which does make it far more available. Before buying any CAD software, I suggest using a trial version to see if designing is really for you.

Actually, you can get the student edition of SolidWorks for $99 if you do some searching around.

Thanks for mentioning my video, Ender.
