I want to share another puzzle animation I made. This one showcases Helix the
Burr, a burr puzzle designed by Bill Cutler. According to him it features the
most interesting disassembly sequence that he has ever created. I can easily
believe that. I had to introduce a kind of X-ray view to show what is happening
during disassembly.

The animation can be found on YouTube: https://youtu.be/qn5-uwqeR2g

The attached preview image hopefully wets your appetite. The X-ray view does not
actually correspond to anything realistic. I have attempted to optimize for
aesthetics and clarity. In particular, it only shows the faces facing the
camera. The other faces are hidden to avoid fragmenting the view too much by the
extra edges.

The soundtrack is by Tortue Super Sonic
(http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Tortue_Super_Sonic/). I did my best to synch
up the animation with the music and am quite happy with the result. I hope you
like it as well.
