A puck with one hundred wedges.
The Centurion Eye is a puck puzzle with 100 wedge pieces instead of the traditional 12 around its circumference, making this the highest order puck puzzle to date.
The inventor was actually just trying to make a regular 12-piece puck because he couldn’t buy any for an acceptable price. So he decided to make his own. It came the point while using the CAD software where one has to choose how many times one would like to slice the shape, and it was at this moment that he decided just out of curiosity, to see what it would look like to slice it a hundred times. Then after seeing the beast he decided to implement it.
With so many thin pieces moving around, the inventor found that the plain circle design in the middle wasn’t sufficient enough to maintain stability in the split move. It was constantly jamming, and pieces would even fall out at times, so he created a sort of platform extending legs towards the outer edges in order to better control which wedges separated. The first design was more of a diamond shape which worked incredibly to solve the alignment issues. However he was not a fan of the shape, so after a bit of brain storming he settled on the Eye because the way the stickers are laid out on the core looks kind of like an iris.
The puzzle uses 20 different colours and was printed on an FDM printer.
