This is meant to be a teaser.
Please DO NOT discuss what this puzzle may or may not be.
Please PM me if you really wish to guess.


Seriously, don't talk about the puzzle. I will reveal it when I get the parts.

That doesn't look like a puzzle, it looks like the outside of some of the "modern" buildings I've seen here. Tiling gone amuck! :lol: :lol:

That is one awesome pic. If you ever manage it, you should make a puzzle with so many layers that you can use a picture like that for a desktop background.

WOW!!! I think its great abstract art as it is. Drewseph, if you'd be willing to share this mesh and camara position I'd love to port it into POV-Ray. Give the parts a nice reflective finish and some nice lighting and I think this could make a GREAT desktop background just as is. Granted I could easily understand why you wouldn't want to share the mesh but if you are willing its something to think about.

Nice.... I can't wait to see the puzzle,
Carl

If the LHC at CERN didn't create a blackhole that destoryed the Earth, the creation of this will surely seal the deal!

Woooooww. So many fillets. I looove fillets. :lol: they look so great and ... fillety. :lol: I love them especially on complex shapes if they go all the way around all the edges and there are so many complex shapes with fillets all over the place in this picture.
Seriously. This is an example of the filleting capabilities of Solid Works.
Respect Solid Works!
Oh yeah nice work from you too Drew. :P
Can someone make a "Find the mistake in the right picture"-picture from this? I mean that picture two times, but with a mistake hidden in one of them? :lol:
It would take forever to find the mistake even if it is like one whole piece replaced or gone...
