Hi,

I'd like to present my new puzzle from the series of puzzles with magnets and based
on "metal" sphere - Octo Chop. This puzzle comes from the Chop family. Initially there
was idea to create cube with 16 parts, see the last picture, it contains less parts than
Little Chop, so I called it Half Chop. Later I chose more interesting shape - Octo barrel.

My puzzles is similar to grigorusha Square-3D, but grigr's puzzle has square style
and two types of parts, whereas mine is more symmetric. Square-3D has more
exotic shapes due to asymmetrical parts and some turns can be blocked. Also
there can be different implementation of internal mechanism.

The puzzle turns extremely smooth and very stable. Enjoy!
