With these puzzles everything that could be imagined to be twisty, does twist. 

3D printing has given designers the freedom to modify, configure, and customize shapes in order to create these unique puzzle and maze products. The process of Selective Laser Sintering has completely changed the puzzle-making game, empowering designers to make puzzles previous impossible in low volumes or with injection molding. These creations make for a brainteasing toy both for the mind and on the eyes. Seeing is believing, but doing is achieving.
