An amazing combination of a moving hole puzzle and intersecting circles.

This puzzle combines two concepts that first seem to be totally alien to each other. After removing the central of nin squares (image 2) the puzzle seems to be variant of Lloyd's moving hole puzzle.
But the pattern on the surface is there for a reason and indeed the circles can be twisted as in an intersecting circles puzzle. Interesting here is that each tile is involved in the rotating circles. The pieces could be rotated to completely different tiles and the puzzle could still be solved.

Each tile has the size of a normal 3x3x3 puzzle. This size was to ensure that the smallest (hidden center) pieces were not too small, and the rails that keep everything together could print with sufficient strength on the designer's FDM printer.
The puzzle in its current state allows the user to "cheat" by turning the rotating pieces out into the empty hole.
Edge length (one tile): 57 mm
