Two hexagonal puzzles consisting of five and nine pieces. The puzzles seems easy, but in fact they are really hard. Especially the one with nine pieces. Getting the first parts in is easy, but the last part(s) will not fit most of the time. Keep your visitors busy with this print on the coffee table.


Print the frame and the puzzle pieces. I have provided two options for the puzzle pieces: in one print and all separate if you want different colors for each puzzle piece. Note that the STL-files are 50% scaled down from the SketchUp design.

The five individual pieces does not match the image or the print in place version. It seems like the L shaped one is duplicated and enlarged instead of having the medium V shaped one.

I have reexamined the model. It is correct. Maybe the angle at which the pieces are presented make them look different. Print them and you will see that they fit (and be the first one to upload images of your make!).

Here are the pieces that are in the zip file for the five parts individually.
What is it that I am missing?
I looked at the file that has them as a single print, and when I separate the pieces, the one does not match this set.

Sorry, I was looking at the wrong file. I have corrected and uploaded the zip file containing the five individual pieces. Thanks for pointing this out!

This looks really cool how do you all do this stuff I haven't begun learning how to create stuff and so I am blown away by everyone's skills

Welcome to the world of 3D-printing. You can also (learn to) do this! Although you don't have the skill yet, you seem very enthusiastic to me, that will keep you going on your path to learn new skills.
