Printable Interlocking Puzzle #2
by richgain, published
'Printable' means no support material required.
'Interlocking' means the puzzle pieces fit together only in the correct sequence and will not fall apart when the puzzle is moved.
This puzzle is much more challenging than PIP#1 so I will be happy to provide a solution on request, if you need it.
Update: The solution video is at youtube.com/watch?v=oNIwRid7390

Impressive! There is a freeware program called Burr Tools that puzzlers use both to create and find solutions for this type of puzzle. It may be interesting to check your algorithm against the current standard.
This puzzle is wicked; one of my pieces curled a bit, which makes it harder to actually fit into place, but even without that, my brain just doesn't go in the right direction to put this together :) Thanks to TheCase for the solution; I'll bring it to the office where smarter puzzlers than me will probably figure it out in minutes :) Thanks!

If you want to print the puzzle in PLA you will need a fan to prevent the tallest piece from melting.
You will need a well tuned printer to ensure that you get a nice snug fit when you assemble the puzzle.
I used Slic3r with settings of 0.2 mm layer height, 0.4 mm extrusion width and 40% infill at 30 mm/s.
