Hey everyone, do you have the exact measurements for each piece? I wanna make a wood version

Hey all, I have added a remix to this that completes it. Halftone you did great and thank you for this, it is complete now, your work is done :D and I am currently trying to solve it. Head to the remix tab to grab the corrected pieces, enjoy and good luck!

Printed 6 pieces and then printed "thing 1 and thing 2" a second time... Yet I haven't found an assembly for these pieces. Some of the other people who have posted build instructions have a piece that has "3" blocks in the middle on one of the pieces and this set does not have that. It's difficult to see how all the pieces fit before assembling the box frame. Does the author or anyone have true instructions for assembly with these pieces which are clear enough to show where they go?

Excaliburr Puzzle

That Excaliburr has differents pieces that this one. I can assembly the Shadow_Burn68 Puzzle but is not equal to the original(because the movements you can do with it after assembly.) or may be I don't know how to assembly. here is a solution but I think that the pieces don't match. I don't know.

any idea how to assemble this anyone?

Thanks to everyone for the feedback, I'll update soon the model with instructions to assemble it correctly, I'll add more tollerance to the pieces and pictures of my final print.

@Halftone
Hey! That look like a nice first draft of a thing but comments aren't really great.. Did you have the chance to work on this? Can we expect a new version or should look for a different model ?

Thanks!

Update: The design mostly printed well, the tolerances are very tight. I recommend sanding the parts in order to have them slide properly against one another. Additionally, the female holes for the sword, and the female holes for the box do not fit the male connection points.

If you have the time and get a chance to print the parts yourself, it would be awesome if you could provide pictures or assembly instructions. My buddy and I have found it impossible to put the puzzle together as there are so many possible combinations in which the parts can be arranged. Thanks!

Not really, it's quite easy. You don't need any instructions, just follow the image in the preview as reference and if the piece doesn't fit try elsewhere. For what concerns the sword stand yeah you're right, that part definetly needs supports if printed whole. In my case i splitted it in the middle section and then I used superglue to merge the two parts, in this way my top and bottom were printed facing the hotbed ending with a glossy surface.

First I have to say great job on the model. Just finished printing and after some sanding it looks awesome. I do have to point out that this is not easy to assemble. The preview image doesn't present any type of order and its not something to just try until its square. I did what you suggested and ended up with a nice cube where none of the parts moved at all. Its still in pieces after 5 different people tried to put it together. They spend more than 30 minutes each and could not do it. This was all with the case open. We are all laughing because assembling has been its own puzzle. Are there really no instructions on the assembly of this? Again great job and I want to complete it so I can upload how great it comes out. Thanks for any help you can provide!
