Daedalus is a masterpiece of design. Brilliantly creative and brutally difficult to both craft and solve, I've wanted to make this puzzle for a while.

According to Allard Walker:
"In its fully closed form, the puzzle hides all of its secrets rather well - there is literally no clue to the sheer pandemonium hiding inside in wait for an unwary puzzler. One of the pics on the Contest website shows the Daedalus with a single piece removed - and it has teeth! From that picture you can surmise that the pieces are constrained by a series of pins and channels, but even that doesn't really prepare you for the challenge."

Daedalus was extremely difficult to craft. The accuracy necessary due level the of interlock is intimidating. Every pin, route and component piece must be spot on for the puzzle to feel correct. I'm happy to report that the extra care we took during manufacturing paid off, and the result is superlative.

How Hard could this little fella be?

I’m stuck with pieces sticking out at all angles, but I am so happy that the Cubic Team has decided to remake this design. I’ve been hunting for a Daedalus for eons and am so glad that I got such a superbly made edition. It’s great fun to analyse and just as much fun to randomly fiddle with. An easy 100%. Well done Mr Benedetti and Mr Fuller.

Daedalus is perfect

Craftsmanship is great. This was my first CD puzzle and it is obvious that Eric is dedicated to his craft. The precision wood working left me baffled as to how one could make such a puzzle out of wood. 100% satisfied.
