PolyTwist Designs – Taking Twisty Puzzles to the Next Level.

We are designing twisty puzzles, which are puzzles in the style of the Rubik’s Cube. We hope to show off some of our original puzzle designs as well as our own interpretations of already-existing classic designs. Our main tools for creating puzzles are CAD software and a 3D printer. Aside from showcasing our creations, our main goal is making puzzles accessible and enjoyable to a wider audience. We want to show people that they don’t have to be a nerd or a genius to enjoy Rubik’s Cube type puzzles. For example, have you ever wanted to play with a Rubik’s cube in the shape of a monkey? We did. So we made one.
At the Festival, we will be displaying our various designs, as well as a laptop and our small 3D printer so people can observe the design process. We will be freely displaying our items and anyone interested will be able to play with our puzzles.

Hands-on activity at the Festival:
We will have various functioning puzzles on display at our table, as well as disassembled projects to highlight the mechanisms inside. Almost everything will be tangible. Anyone interested will be free to handle the puzzles. We will have our small 3D printer running as a demonstration.
