Designer Alexander Magyarics writes about his design:
2D and 3D packing problems are my favourites, especially those with only a few pieces, together with a sufficient level of difficulty. I hope you will like Pincers and add it to your collection. You do not need to create the illusion of a full cube inside (like we all do with amazing packing designs by Osanori). Just fit the three pieces below the top layer. So what is the clue here? – the shapes of the pieces and box opening. Study them well to eliminate a huge number of possible assemblies (83) to fit in 3x3x3 cube. There is only one solution and the disassembly level is 9.4.3 without any rotational moves. . Have fun with this puzzle.
Difficulty: 16 (9.4.3) No rotational moves required. The brackets indicate the breakdown of moves to free each piece sequentially.
Made in a combination of beautifully contrasting Cherry & Ovangkol woods.
