I saw a post on Reddit a while back about an awesome puzzle by pacificpuzzleworks. The method of how it slid together intrigued me. I wanted to get around to modeling it in solidworks to make a 3d printed variant. Then of course the puzzle blewup on youtube and several great makers printed out a variant that someone generated for 3d printing. But I still wanted to try my hand at the modeling. So here is my stab at it.
I have a few variations. One base model including the 3 parts. Then a model where the honeycomb is separated (in simplify3d select "separate connected surfaces" to split up after importing). So you can print the honeycomb in a different color. I took the low tech approach on the one I printed. I printed in one color... then sharpied the honeycomb :)
I have included the file in solidworks, X_T, STEP, and Fusion360. Hack / Modify / Edit to your heart's content.
Materials and methods
You can print it all as one color, as three pieces different colors, or as pieces with multimaterial printing so the honeycomb is an accent color. Prints without support. I printed it in SnowLabs Sublime Green-1.75-PLA+
