We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
Extended my original script to allow pairs of pieces to be skewed as well as rotated.
The puzzles look a lot more interesting but more angles does not neccessarily make them harder to solve...
Open any of the three OpenScad files, tweak and print.
It is really, really, really easy with this script to create a puzzle where the key piece can not be removed - it's quite likely that you will need to render the assembled and then work out which colour piece should be subtracted from which.
The three included scrips and STL's are for the following puzzles :
BaconBurrger : All three pairs of sticks rotated and skewed by six degrees.
Chad Burr : All three pairs skewed by 13 degrees. Interestingly Lake Chad is at 13 degrees North, 13 degrees East. And both Chad and Chuck are nicknames for Charles.Geographic puzzling coincidence or signs of higher forces at work? Either way print this one with care.
WoodWorkersNightmare Burr : 1 pair rotated by 2 degs, skewed by 4, a second pair with angles of 6 and 8, a third by 10 and 12. Not impossible to make in wood but less than trivial. Of course, 3D printers make this a doddle!!!
I am not convinced my Skewing is working altogether as I intended (it is Skewing but perhaps not as intended) this Thing may be updated in due course.
Drunk Chunk Twists is an entirely appropriate name as the puzzle pieces are all over the place and the scipts were designed on Christmas and Boxing day under the influence of just a little Christmas spirits (which partly explains why I ultimately gave up on the matrix maths to lay pieces on the plate!)
