Hello, this is my first 3D printed puzzle, has generally gone pretty well, except for one small problem, is too small ... hahaha :)

I've tried to do the puzzle for use with the core and screws of a Gigaminx, but for some strange reason my head was lost between the numbers and the puzzle has gone small. The screws are long and the springs too.

Apart from this, the puzzle works perfectly, I have designed to make sure I was clear about the design concept, leaving aside the size, it perishes else is fine.

I show you some pictures:

Small as it may be, it is certainly a very attractive puzzle. I do hope, however, that as you endeavor into the world of printed puzzles, you not stop making your beautiful hand-crafted mods as well. I'd hate to see the end of your handiwork's legacy come so soon.

You must not worry, I'll keep build puzzles by hand, is what I like, but there are some puzzles that would be practically impossible to build a hand to me, is why I am "practicing"to construct these puzzles printed.

Nice job Chino! I'm curious to see where you go next with the 3d printing.

What program do you use?

Cool Puzzle! It's a shame that it perishes else :lol:

I want to see it with stickers! It should look awesome.

Reminds me of a Rhomball...
