I've corrected the puzzle (V2) to:
- enlarge it so it's not possible to lose the marbles in any situations
- add 2 arrows to ease the assembly
The final size with 15.5mm marbles is a bit large for my taste (117*117*37mm) so I've generated a version for 10mm marbles (78*78*26mm), you can find them for cheap as steel ball bearings in online stores.

I finaly printed this one in PLA, 2 shells 20% infill, and got my first experience with warping on a non-heated bed... Only the external faces were warped, and the dovetail part was pretty flat, so I just had to do a little bit of sanding to make it slide nicely!
When doing the right actions there is a maximum of 4 steps to open the puzzle, but there are traps and dead-ends that will play tricks with anyone who's tempting to solve it. It's not an difficult puzzle probably 3/5 but should be challenging enough. You can check the solution here: wp.me/p3gI7M-2M at the end of the post.
To assemble the puzzle:
1/ push the 2 marbles in the holes (1 per piece)
2/ hold each marble/piece between the thumb and forefinger
3/ completly slide the the pieces starting with the corners with the arrows
4/ try to disassemble it!
