Well, it says non-toxic, so I guess that's a good sign. I'll take the neck part!

Brilliant & beautiful puzzle. Is it a 3x3x3 based? I mean is that you design the outlook part & then cover them into a 3x3 cube?

Pig shaped 3*3*3? Someone needs to combine this with the treasure chest cube and make a Piggy Bank Cube!

Very cute. Its obvious you put a great deal of effort into copying that eBay picture. Why did you go for something different for the tail?

Thanks to all.

Some more details for the printing process.

The pig is complete 3d-printed. No extensions for a 3x3x3.

I have to split some edges in 3 parts. Each part for another color print. See the 6 edges in the brown ring. The edges close to the yellow corners were built out of 2 different pieces too...

I need 59 pieces for the hull and 7 pieces for the core and the centers (19mm standard size).

But I have forgotten to design the tail. And the next possibility to print it in the color white will be in 3 weeks or later. Therefore I used another implementation for the tail. My wife said to me, that it is looking better with this kind of tail.

That means it is not meant to be eaten. Pigs raised for eating got the tails cut of.
PETA will love you.
