Voronoi Fracture Print-in-Place Pyramid Puzzle

About: We supply tools and know-how for digital and manufactured creation. - http://creative-tools.com - http://google.com/+CreativetoolsSe

This 3D-printable pyramid puzzle was made in Cinema 4D using the MoGraph Voronoi Fracture feature.

Settings were adjusted to create a 0.3 mm air gap between all individual elements, enabling the whole pyramid to be 3D-printed in place as one single STL file. The Bevel Deformer in Cinema 4D was then used to create a 0.5 mm chamfer to break all the sharp edges.

We provide STL files for a single print-in-place, a flat build plate, and all ten individual parts.

    Hello there!

    We're glad you want to share something with the Instructables community!

    And we’re here to help you out.

    Due to some recent changes on the site, we are no longer able to publish stand-alone videos and other forms of incomplete posts. In order to be published live on the site, Instructables must consist of the following things:

    - Multiple steps showing how you made your project

    - Written instructions in each step

    - Your own original images

    Beyond making your Instructable simply publishable, this guide (https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Create-a-Feature-Worthy-Instructable/) explains what is required to have your Instructables featured by our site editors. It’s very helpful, and definitely worth checking out.

    We would love to review your project again after you have made the necessary edits, and we will publish your project if it is eligible.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to ask right here or send us an email at service@instructables.com.

    Best,

    Instructables Community Manager
