hi, I designed a new puzzle I called the nodebox. it's made of 12 parts, with 3 types of parts and 4 colors. here's where it gets tricky: to get a complete puzzle, I designed 2 different sets of parts available in my shop, with 2 units of each needed. so 4 sets in total, each in a different color. I have 2 questions:

- are the instructions to get a full set too complex?

- a puzzle would be about 80€, is it too expensive for a 6 cm large puzzle?

the puzzle is supposed to be a box that can only be assembled in a precise order. I am waiting for the parts, I'll come back as soon as the puzzle is validated!

it's live! I received and assemble the prototype, and it performed as intended (as in deceivingly simple and fiendishly difficult). I updated my shop with items and videos:

To get a complete puzzle, order 2 piece sets A and 2 piece sets B, in 4 different colors. In the video:

1 white set A
1 blue set A
1 red set B
1 purple set B

That's a great puzzle!

Head over to Shapeways Labs to find out how to add multiple items to the cart all at once using the Product Sets Mod

whoa, thanks... I actually thought it would be a nice feature but had no idea it existed! I took a look at your shop, do you also know how to add paragraphs to the description?

Have you disabled the Public View?

For the paragraphs, I use HTML tags <br> (or actually <br><br>), but I'm sure there's a better way.

You can pretty much use any html tags for formatting.
Paragraph - <p>texty stuff here</p>
Line break - <br>

it's live! again... thanks for all your help, I added a link to order a complete puzzle. I actually had to create 4 sets, each in a different color, since the Product Sets Mod only considered default material.

You can also use an online html editor.
