Here is a few more 3D puzzle designs to keep the kids happy. I have a good size collection of these puzzle in DXF format. I have touched these up, and scaled them to 16ga (.060) material. Hope you all like...

I have the notches scaled down to .060" material. If you want bigger material, then scale accordingly. For example...if you want to use .119" material, then you would have to divide .119 by .060 (.119/.060)=1.98. You then would want to scale image in all directions by 1.98. If you want to use .25 plywood, then you would scale by 4.16.

The reason I use 16 ga material, is that we have a lot of drops of that size, and its free!!!

Should I post some more puzzles?

I love these puzzles,,,,

my problem, is with my torches i have a minimum of 30 amp torch, high definition and the kerf width is around .060 if i remember correctly.

The dragon puzzle for instance has corner reliefs in each slot that are only .020" dia. the math does not work and my controller destroys the part when it tres to send them over for cutting.

how do i fix this?

My Waterjet has this same issue as the Kurf is around .040". The small radius' confuse the system and when it tries to cut it, the cut is all blown out at that location. I solved my problem by doing straight point corners....just let the jet create the radius if that makes sense.

So i need to load and edit the file then to remove all those coner reliefs? im not very cad efficient.

also with the slot sizes and my kerf width i figure i have to scale it up just over 4 times, I then can use 1/4 material and the slots will be 1/4 in width.

Thanks for all the 3d files but my question is, how the hell does it all go together are the pieces numbered or is that something we have to figure out on our own !!!!!!!!
