Supplies

As this is only the design, the only supplies you will be needing is some type of electronic where you can get access to tinkercad.com. Additionally, if you have a 3D printer at home feel free to experiment and try to print it out yourself!

Step 1: Creating Your Square Base

Before you can go through and customize your puzzle however you want, we have to get the basic square down first. Start by dragging a square out from the right-hand toolbar and onto your workplace mat. From there you have the option of continuing grabbing 1 brick at a time until you get a 3 x 3 x 3 tower. (A faster way is to highlight select bricks and use the duplicate button upper left toolbar.) This is the key part of creating your new puzzle! Check out the pictures to see a more detailed insight of the square tower.

Step 2: Forming Your Individual Puzzle Pieces:

After your square tower is complete while holding shift select the 4 purple (check picture) blocks. After all 4 are clicked on slowly drag it out and place somewhere on the placemat. This is your first puzzle piece. You may select any color from the drop-down menu to use for this puzzle piece.

Step 3: Forming the Other Puzzle Pieces. (Part 1)

Now, we have to form the other 5 puzzle pieces. By following the pictures it shows each colored puzzle piece inside the square tower. Then, the picture on the right of each being the piece pulled out and put to the side. Please go through and make sure you got all 6 puzzle pieces, and refer to the pictures for much better instruction and clarity.

* Make sure to group each puzzle piece after it is finished (upper right corner toolbar) *

Step 4: The Remaining Puzzle Pieces (Part 2)

Only 3 puzzle pieces remain untouched. By following the pictures it shows each colored puzzle piece inside the square tower. Then, the picture on the right of each being the piece pulled out and put to the side. Refer to the pictures for much better instruction and clarity. The last piece (red) won't need to be edited but will need to be grouped.

* Make sure to group each puzzle piece after it is finished (upper right corner toolbar) *

Step 5: Piecing It Together!

The whole purpose of a puzzle is to try and get it all the pieces to create some sort of shape, picture, or pattern. So, it's your turn to try! The goal is to fit all of the pieces back into the shape of the original square tower! Are you up for the challenge?
