Hi Everyone,

I'm happy to say that I have fully redesigned my Compound Fracture puzzle, and the new version is now available for sale in my Shapeways shop.

The original version worked quite well, but it was a bit large due to the fact that I used the same equatorial edge length (two inches) as I did for the Fracture-10 puzzle. This made the Compound Fracture substantially larger, and more expensive than it needed to be. I reduced the size to make it more to scale with my other puzzles, and while I was at it I redesigned the "seam" area of the puzzle, as well as the assembly method. I think the new model looks a bit cleaner than the original, and did I mention it's less expensive? Here's a video of the new model.

And here are a few pictures:
