Description

Make these holidays harder than they have to be, with so many squiggly pieces demanding to become a star!

The puzzle is generated by dividing a star into similar regions, and running a differential line growth simulation on the resulting graph. As the graph edges grow, pushed and pulled by opposing forces among the vertices, the initial regions turn into wiggly shapes with deceptively similar borders.

Materials and methods

PLA

Prints at 0.2 mm layer height. You can print the pieces in batches. The star-shaped piece is tiny, so you might need to add a brim around it.
