Puzzles by Type > 3D Put Together & Packing


thecubesmall.jpg3D Put Together puzzles can be described as those puzzles which need to be assembled to make a 3D shape but they are not interlocking puzzles.  In other words 3d wooden puzzles do not lock together so that they cannot be picked up as a single shape when completed.  Box packing puzzles, cube puzzles and other assembly puzzles and also some pattern matching puzzles generally come into this category. 

 




Box Packing with pieces that clamp around the frame Box Packing with pieces that clamp around the frame


QTY:



Wood selection:



A very unusual design for a packing puzzle.  The pieces hook around the outside of the box like clamps as well as using the space inside the box.  This restricts the movement and makes a unique solution.   First problem is to unpack the pieces from within the box; in itself a difficult level 8.4.3 interlocked puzzle.  Once you have the pieces out its hard to keep track of which one is which;  unusual shapes that are similar but quite different.
