These sort of puzzles frustrate the day lights out of me, and even more so the clever people who can make them look so good and easy to solve. Top marks sir.

Don't know how I missed this GeoSA... I'm a sucker for puzzles…

Be interesting to see if I can reproduce this out of MDF on my laser… Puzzles out of MDF, cut on a laser, has been my compulsion recently…

PS. How is SU 2020… worth upgrading? 2019 didn't seem to be… Only realised when my 2018 wouldn't read your latest version.

That's strange. I'm still using the SU 2017 Make version (the last free version that can be downloaded). Don't know if 3D warehouse is doing their thing to force upgrades. I, can email the plan to you. Just pop your email adress in a PM to me

It is actually a simple plan. Here are some screen shots that might help as well
Here is a link to the "instructibles:Build instructions website:Build instructions
https://www.instructables.com/id/Wooden-Centrifugal-Puzzle/" explaining how to make, although I didn,t realley make use of their methods and I shaped mine a bit different on the dimensions.

The tricky part is being accurate when drilling the holes to make sure they line up. Don't know if your CNC can do the holes as well. If so that would help in perfect alignment.

The way to take the puzzle apart is to to spin it. The centrifugal force then disengages the pins as they are flung to the outside in the cross legs.




Hope this helps

Managed to download the 2018 version… actually, I thing the warehouse makes all versions available.

I don't have a CNC… I fake it with a laser… Unfortunately I cut most of my puzzles out of MDF and MDF doesn't have what we could refer to as a reasonable endgrain.
