"Sphere" Puzzle Prototype 0A - 3D design by Peter Bock May 12, 2018

<p>A first take on a Spherical world puzzle.</p><p><br></p><p>Things I need to work on:</p><p><br></p><p>* Test clearances (I think they're too big right now, but to properly test it I REALLY need my own 3D printer, and MakeX has yet to come back with news about when I'm getting the MIGO from December's design competition X/)</p><p><br></p><p>* Add relief design to the sphere, to make it prettier.</p><p><br></p><p>* Make it a full sphere.</p><p><br></p><p>* find the best orientation to print the pieces</p><p><br></p><p>* Explore if it's better to have an internal "wire frame" to assemble the pieces on, or have more 3 dimensional hooks in the puzzle pieces to properly fit them together.</p><p><br></p><p>I think the wire frame idea would help with stability after assembly, but then it'd be about figuring out a way for the pieces to fit on the wire frame without spoiling the puzzle...<br></p><p><br></p><p>----------------------<br></p><p><br></p><p>Lots of work to be done, but I felt releasing at least the basic model could be interesting.</p><p><br></p><p>Especially since, as with a lot of projects I undertake, I might completely forget/lose interest in this one and never work on it again X/<br></p>
