Hi Non-Twisty Puzzles fans,

Knotsplosion is a put-together puzzle with three identical cubic looped pieces. When assembled, the three loops intersect at four point. The puzzle disassembles first in a smooth coordinated motion. However, the real puzzle is then to get the pieces free from each other. The assembly poses the opposite, even harder problem.

Surprisingly, Knotsplosion is a spin-off of the Hurly Burly puzzle. Hurly Burly has three loop-shaped piece that are black, green and blue. They fit together in an unexpected topological fashion that allows them to be taken apart. When I discovered this topology on my computer screen in May 2005, I built a cubic model of centicubes. I was quite surprised to find out that even the cubic version was hard to put together or take apart, even though there were just three identical loopy pieces. Tom Lensch made some big wooden samples and Hanayama even made a metal prototype in 2007, which was too delicate unfortunately. At the request of a customer of mine, I am now making it available via Shapeways.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Offset Cube looks like a squashed 2x2x7 puzzle, shaped to a cube. However, the axes of the inner 1x2x2 have an offset by half of the width of a piece. Because of this, pieces can change layer while playing the puzzle. This makes the puzzle harder to solve.

Hi Non-Twisty Puzzles fans,

Hurly Burly is a set of four six-piece burrs, intertwined in a spiral fashion. The puzzle has nine parts, three of which are "8-shaped". And the other six are "eight-divided-in-two". The puzzle has a very unexpected first solving move. The two yellow pieces are turned in a helical path, in which one pushes the other and vice verse. This is a new type of coordinated motion. Also the linking of the three 8-shaped pieces (green, blue, black) is unexpected, namely the fact that they come apart and that they are NOT linked together like Borromean rings or so.

The first Hurly Burly prototype was made by George Miller in 2005. George also gave the puzzle its name. "Hurly burly" means "noisy confusion, tumult". It also was the title of a dark comedy play. Moreover, it relates to the classic type of "burr puzzle".

I used this puzzle (3D-printed by Shapeways) as my exchange gift for IPP33 in Narita. I made a few extra samples, which are being sold by PuzzleMaster.

Hi Twisty Puzzles fans,

Ambigear Cube is a 4x4x4 Rubik's Cube with a gearing mechanism inside. It's name is from "ambiguous gearing". In a regular gearing mechanism, all parts have direct interact with each other and if you block one part then the other parts are blocked as well. Not for this mechanism. If you lock the top two layers to each other then the top two still mesh. Same for the bottom two layers and middle two layers. This makes the puzzle confusing to solve.

This puzzle uses the same gearing mechanism as the Geared 1x1x4, which has two linked planetary gear systems.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Jumble Pebble is yet another jumbling puzzle in the vein of Meteor Madness, Astroid Attack and Big Boulder. However, the geometry of this jumbling puzzle is an enigma. Can you find it at Wikipedia? Or will its geometry remain as illusive as Jumble Rock?

Hi Shapeways fans,

Deep Penta is a design inspired by the "deeper-than-origin" discussion at the Twisty Puzzles Forum, triggered by David Pitcher's RotoPrism 2.

The purpose of the big hole in one of the corners is to show that the mechanism of the puzzle is deeper-than-origin. However, only two deeper-than-origin rotations are enabled (two screws at the inside). Some shallow rotations are enabled too (screws visible at the outside), but not all. This makes the puzzle confusing to solve, as sometimes rotations are blocked. The screws are kept visible to reduce that confusion again.

There is something paradoxical about "deeper-than-origin". This puzzle is deeper-than-origin, because only some of the cuts are deeper-than-origin. If all cuts were deeper-than-origin, then the puzzle itself would no longer be classified as deeper-than-origin. Strange, isn't it?

This arrived many months ago, but it has taken me this long to dye in 8 colors!

index.php?t=getfile&id=33954&private=0

This puzzle was invented over 25 years ago by Leonard Gordon. It is a box-packing puzzle using 8 identical "L" shaped pieces. Originally devised from pieces made from joined spheres, I made it from truncated rhombic dodecahedra or edge-beveled cubes.

index.php?t=getfile&id=33955&private=0

Four of these pieces interlock into a truncated tetrahedron. "Ell of a puzzle" uses eight pieces, and the puzzle is to pack the pieces into a cubical box. I have sized the pieces so that a golf ball case can be used as a box. The pieces fit snugly together and the final assembly stands on it's own without the box. In contrast, I also made the puzzle from joined spheres and then the assembly will not stand on its own.

index.php?t=getfile&id=33956&private=0

This is a difficult puzzle due to the unusual arrangement of pieces in a box. When the puzzle is solved, 5 colors are visible on each face of the cube. This may help slightly in solving it, but not much.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Rototribute is a tribute to David Pitchers award-winning Rotoprism 2 puzzle. The two puzzles look the same and both puzzles jumble. However, whereas Dave's implementation has three axes and uses deeper-than-origin cuts, this version by Oskar has nine axes and regular shallow cuts. The differences become apparent when scrambling the puzzle. Each puzzle has moves that are blocked in the other puzzle.

Hey everyone,

presenting my next 3D Relief Micro-Painting in my 3D History line.

One of the most powerful and impressive nuclear detonations of all time: The French 'Licorne' (Unicorn) Thermonuclear test of 1970 with a yield of 914 kilotons.
This particular item is designed is such a way, that bright back-lighting will enhance the visual impression of the painting.

The steampunk-styled Android figure I designed in Blender just arrived from Shapeways. All the little details came out great. Even the little gears came our perfect; I was worried the details would just get merged during printing. The colors are nice and bright. The figure is about 10cm high. I think I will put this one in my store.

Hello,

I recently received my fourth Shapeways order, which I am very happy with. I got four items:
Gyro the Cube
Micro Square-1
Snub 24 Cell
and one prototype of my own design, for a school art project:
M. C. Escher Sphere

index.php?t=getfile&id=33207&private=0

They all turned out very well and I am happy. The Escher Sphere is now available on my shop.

Callum

Hi there,
first post here, and first public object on Shapeways !

http://www.shapeways.com/model/1078860/struct-20.html

I've tried a number of procedural random shapes over the last months, and this one is the first I'm really happy about Smile

I used Blender and a custom Python program. It's pretty light and cheap !

Really pleased with the results of this polished silver print! Koi or beta fish tail pendant. No post-printing finishing or polishing done, just strung on an 1" sterling silver necklace.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Jumble Rock is a jumbling twisty puzzle with an unusual geometry. Can you tell what it is?

The steampunk submarine I designed in Blender arrived from Shapeways today. The model is in full color sandstone. The details came out really great.

With this I was testing out a system for toy building blocks I had come up with a while ago. Wanted to see if it actually worked the way I had imagined and... it actually came out alright! The material thickness limitations make it quite large in scale but the concept works. I might need to make the parts fit together a little more tightly as they tend to wear down a little with use. My kids had fun playing with these blocks since they are really easy to assemble into a little space ship or a gun or letters. I just wish I had more to build a castle with... but it's just a little too expensive still Smile

keymichael1855 was kind enough to do a 1/96 scale Apollo CM (command module), AND IT LOOKS GREAT.
Thank you very much.

I designed a steampunk-styled fish using Blender and the 3D sandstone print just arrived from Shapeways. Somehow, I messed up the colors so some of the parts came out white. But I'm very impressed with the detail of the 3D print, especially the propellor.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Danger Cube is a more dangerous version of Caution Cube, with more and sharper gears. The outer gears are similar to Timur Evbatyrov's Gear Corner Turning Octahedron. The inner mechanism was cloned from Geared Mixup. This means that all center gears and edge gears can be interchanged.

Watch the YouTube video.
Buy the puzzle at my Shapeways Shop.

Enjoy!

Continuing with my experiments I modified the 3D model for a better fit to the watch case. It now fits exactly. It couldn't fit better if manufactured by Casio itself. The new stainless print has a very precise fit. Not only that but Shapeways also moved the sprue to the end where it's much easier to grind off. The previous stainless print had the sprue on the curved side which didn't look to good. (I'm fussy about detail) I also printed a couple colored WSF covers which came out quite nice. I'm very very happy with the results.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Spider Gear was suggested by Bram Cohen and named by José. A ball with holes is contained by a cage and six pointy gears. When the ball is turned then the gears follow. Both the ball and the gears are bi-colored. The object of the puzzle is to turn the ball such that it ends up upside down, while the gears are returned to their original position.

Watch the YouTube video.
