Hi Twisty Puzzles fans,

Twist Apart was proposed by Jin-Hoo Ahn, the inventor of the award-winning Hanayama Cast G&G. It is a variation to my Turn Apart puzzle. The puzzle is held together by dovetail joins. The object is to twist the puzzle such the puzzle can be taken apart, piece by piece.

Watch the YouTube video.
Buy the puzzle at my Shapeways Shop.
Read more at the Shapeways Forum.
Check out the photos below.

Enjoy!

Oskar

Fascinating! I am always amazed at your puzzles. Keep designing puzzles, because it is what you were born to do.

Oskar, do you have any details about how this puzzle differs from Turn Apart?

I'm curious too. I found a few:
- With Twist Apart you can freely twist in three directions in the solved state. Turn Apart can twist in one direction (when solved)
- Turn Apart has recessed stickers (minor detail)
anything else?

Interesting... my first thought was that Turn Apart didn't have the blocked moves but I just went back and checked and it does. So is this just a different assortment of tongue and groves or is there something else going on here?

I like both of these... the could be considered mini-treasure chest puzzles.
