|COMMENTS:||With the invention of the NOS (New Old School) puzzle series, Gregory took the six piece burr format and turned it on its head. The only thing more noteworthy than the uniqueness of the series was how difficult they are to make. When he sent me the plans for them a year ago, I turned him down because it just looked like a nightmare to manufacture. I wasn't wrong...BUT...
Gregory came up to me at IPP this summer and let me play with a couple three D printed versions and I was hooked. These look like six piece burrs but are nothing like them. The angled internal geometry allows for some outrageous movements. These puzzles are very confusing and wonderfully different. I'm glad I made the first two, and will be looking into the others for future production.
Round Trip is the third of the NOS designs and is very tricky both to disassemble and reassemble. It has a level 22.214.171.124 solution, and requires coordinate motion. The first move will very much surprise you!
The construction of this puzzle is excellent. Production was very challenging, requiring the creation of several new jigs and techniques. Fit is excellent, a little tighter than Compressed to allow for the required coordinate motions.
