I recently uploaded a maze isosurface adn i see you already have a maze and a marching cubes program, its prodigious, good programming. check out the labyrinth from my page it's more advanced for mapping and less advanced for mesh. see you

Are you really sure about this?

No, the tolerance on the connecting tabs may be to tight on your brand of printer. And there is no guarantee that a specific set of pieces has one, zero or infinite number of solutions.

I don't mean to be rude, but the pieces resemble swastikas, which may violate the TOS.

That was far from my first impression, and even after seeing your comment I had to go back and look closely at the 3D renders to even get an idea of what you could be on about. I think your assessment is a stretch, as the models have nothing offensive about them whatsoever. What's rude is to invent controversy where there is none. This is a very cool puzzle, want to try printing it myself!

Math cant be rude. Its pretty much the best solution how a shape has to be in a design for a puzzle piece of rotational symmetry overlaid with half spaces with shared walls and the same 90 degree rotational symmetry and some constriction how tabs can be printed. The work is heavily inspired by M. C. Escher. When laid the puzzle resembles a square grid and a fun toy maze. When function drives design there is no violation of TERMS OF USE. People hating each others is the dangerous thing we have to work against not geometris that may or may not vaguely resemble swastikas, How ever I might have a design tweak that satisfies you question and all design criteria, all but complexity.

This is very cool :)
