Hi Everyone,

Many years ago (sometime around 2001) when I was just starting to make puzzles with a 3D printer, I experimented with a few burr designs. One of them was Peter Marineau's Piston Puzzle Burr. I recently decided to revise the model a bit for the Shapeways process, so I'm also making it available to you.

You can buy the puzzle for under $20 in my Shapeways shop.

Here are a couple photos of the puzzle in blue and purple:

Enjoy!
Dave

Nice design Dave, an interesting solution to the powder drain holes. I suppose you could have designed them with caps for the open ends for a more traditional look.

Thanks Gus! I actually did make a first version with caps, but it was more expensive, and I liked this design better.
