Make your own puzzle

Engraved and cut out acrylic in the shape of a puzzle

A fractal puzzle made by member Pete for his granddaughter.

I have a backlog of pictures and videos of cool things members have created at MindGear. Above is a puzzle that Pete made for his granddaughter, I believe. He found a puzzle generator, but this isn’t any ordinary puzzle. Note that there are only two unique pieces in the puzzle. I bet it would be a challenge to put it back together, but a fun one. This was a pretty simple project too. Pete found a generator to create the pattern above and then it was just a simple process of loading the laser cutter and letting it run. The cutter etched the acrylic and then cut out all the pieces.
