I posted the Kites previously, but it seems that double tiles are not the type with which those
puzzles work. I won't go into more details, but some of you will know what I mean.
It took me a while to set it up, as it required some serious sanding, and cutting grooves,
while the stringing is certainly harder than the square tiles, especially with shallow grooves!
(I was forced to cut shallow grooves, as some tiles broke after trying to make them deeper).
And yes, I had to make my own strings; some were made by using fishing knot techniques,
while some were made by using capillary.
Well here is Snow Flake, the four-hexagonal-tile folding plate puzzle.

The plates rotate in a more complex way than the four-square-tile puzzle.
It is less stable, but stability depends heavily on the quality of the molds.
(the Snow Flake was missing a few grooves, but it was still functional! LOL)
The movement was expected, I just wanted to also check if it was capable
of doing the "inside out" move (like the Flexible Hexagon), and it can! (but sorry,
I am not showing this risky move on the video yet, I am saving this puzzle for my trip)
