Welcome to the Shapeways shop of Dr. Carl Hoff. I started publishing twisty puzzle designs back in January 2007 on TwistyPuzzles.com. Up until 2011, all my designs were made in POV-Ray which doesn't allow saving in a format suitable for 3D printing. However after seeing other designers offering designs for sale here at Shapeways, I'm now learning some new 3D modeling software which will allow my designs to be printed.
The models available for purchase in my shop include all the 3D printed parts needed to build your own puzzle. They do not include any additional hardware (screws, washers, springs, etc.) or stickers. In each puzzle's description, I will detail what additional material is needed and where it may be obtained. For example, I'm trying to make all the stickers for my puzzles available at Olivér's Stickers.
White Strong & Fexible is set as the default material for all my puzzles. If you want a puzzle with a colored body you can select from Black, Red, or Purple Stong & Flexibe here at Shapeways or you can order the White Strong & Fexible version and dye the puzzle yourself. I use powder RIT's fabric dye which has even more color options and for most should be easily available at your local department or hobby store.
Please contact me by clicking 'Send Message' above if you are interested in purchasing an already assembled, stickered, and broken in puzzle or if you have any questions about how to turn your Shapeways kit into a finished puzzle. I'll be happy to help.
