Hello, I'm VERY new to SolidWorks and have created an interesting puzzle. But it's nothing compared to some puzzles on here. I consider it a Cubic, Shallow-Cut, Second-order, Rubik's Cheese Puzzle. I don't know if it will function. I would need to adjust for tolerances, fillet pieces, create caps, and screw-holes. I'm might need to adjust the walls within the puzzle to make sure they aren't too thin.

Nonononononoooooo!!!

Those pieceses are scary. Maybe thicken them up or try a new mech. Glad to see you got the basics down.

Haha thanks, I know it looks really brittle. But hopefully the concept is correct and it'll work if the pieces are thicker. It's really easy to adjust how much thickness there is. I learned how to make puzzles like that on solidworks a couple of days ago. I figured out how to add the second layer earlier today. For now, I'm trying to make puzzles with a center piece. With the exception of the horizontal cut which is easy.
