Twisty Burr

This puzzle is very easy to assemble- all you have to do is glue the pieces on to a mini Eastsheen 2x2x2. However, you must be careful to glue them on correctly, or the puzzle may not be solvable!

How to assemble:
  1. Buy a mini Eastsheen 2x2x2. You can get them in many places, but make sure the edge length is 2.4cm.
  2. Peel off the stickers. The easiest way to do this is to carefully slide a craft or utility knife under a corner of the sticker, and peel.
  3. Line up the pieces you received from Shapeways. There are four pieces with half circles on the inside, and four with triangles. All the circles should be on the same side, in the same orientation, and the triangles will be on the opposite side, also in the same orientation.
  4. Glue them on using your favorite superglue (I use gorilla glue). Be careful to keep the glue out of the 2x2x2 itself, it should remain functional. Also be careful to remember the alignment of the circles/triangles, as you won't be able to see them when the piece is on! The triangles should be glued to the opposite face that the circles are glued to.
  5. Enjoy your puzzle!
