Hi,

I would like to share my latest puzzle animation with you. It's the tenth I have
created this year, and compared to the first one (featuring the Mega Six
puzzle), quality has definitely gone up.

This latest animation showcases the Cubloc puzzle designed by Stephan Baumegger.
It's the third puzzle of his I have animated. This puzzle consists of 24 pieces
and is shaped like a cube. It takes 49 moves to extract the first piece.

Most of the modelling time was spent on synching the animation with the
soundtrack. The soundtrack is by Kai Engel, again. It's the third time I used
music from him as a soundtrack. The result can be seen (and heard) on YouTube
at:

I hope you like it. If so, feel free to give it a thumbs up, as that should help
to give it a few more views.

Cheers,
Erwin

Nice!
That's quite a few intricately shaped pieces.

As usual it blows my mind that anyone can think these puzzles up.
Keep up the good work.

Cool. I like this one for being a relatively simple looking cube to 
start.

Thanks for your comments.

Indeed. They are also not all from a single piece of wood as a result, as can
also be seen in the 3D model.

Yes, indeed. Even though these puzzles are designed with computer support,
that's mainly to exhaustively search for alternative/unwanted/shorter solutions.
The actual design and iterative fine-tuning still requires a lot of skill and
ingenuity. Not that I speak from experience here, but having solved a fair
number of these puzzles, I do have a pretty good idea of what is involved.

That's also what attracted me to this puzzle. Its outward simplicity, however,
does not say much about the complexity of its solution :-)

Cheers,
Erwin
