Hi everybody, hope you are having a good day.

This is the first of three puzzles I am showing today.

It is a 1x3x5, designed in Alibre Design, and printed by Twistypuzzle member Incredible(Karl-Heinz).

A video will come after the weekend, for now, pictures:

Yes, I am having a good day :lol:

Nice work! Especially from an intolerant software like Alibre!

May I recommend smoother faces and a waiting time of 2 days before applying stickers? They look a little bubbly to me :?

Hi

All the pieces are 3D printed, with no smoothing, which may also make the stickers look bubbly. The stickers however aren't really bubbly, its just the texture of the piece underneath. Also I'm not sure if stickers bubble on printed parts, I thought it's just casted parts?

Thanks for the feed back!

I'm pretty sure bubbles only form on casted pieces as well, never mind what I said before.

Very nice puzzle.


I have never found Alibre intolerant.
