A recent Helical Burr from the twisted mind of Derek Bosch.
is the used to be the highest level four piece Helical Burr found so far. A mind blowing 36 moves to separate the puzzle into four pieces. It is definitely achievable though. Ali solved this one before we'd even put a solution together!
I (Steve) really like this one the end caps, slightly reminiscent of the icy North and South poles definitely have a lot more going on below the surface than they do peaking out from the top.
The name for this puzzle was actually suggested many years ago by Laurie Brokenshire. It is visually similar to the simpler W(h)orl(e)d Puzzle. When I showed that one to Laurie at a puzzle party and explained the name he said "you should have called it Polar Burr". Of course, he was right and, finally, we are able to use his much better naming session. For me this is a reminder of Laurie and his amazing wit. The puzzle world definitely misses him.
It has been printed by The Two Brass Monkeys in PLA. It's definitely a difficult puzzle. Each one takes around 18 hours to print and we'll therefore only be releasing these in small batches.
I will listing a few 3D printed Helical designs for sale. The shipping price is fixed no, matter how many puzzles you buy. Happy to combine postage with the couple of listings I have under my personal account here (Steve) or purchases from twobrassmonkeys.com. In both cases the postage for these will be at zero additional cost.
Payment by Paypal, Wise (previously Transferwise) or bank transfer will be fine.
