    One of my kids is not easily impressed, he is turning 6 and puzzles are very easy for him. This encouraged me to make him a puzzle, hope it takes him a while i know i cant resolve it by myself.
    Browsing through the internet gave me an idea so i drew my own.

    The steps are very simple, just make sure to inspect the included SVG file an its layers
    Cut Ouside: Use this to cut the bottom plate from ply and the top frame from acrylic, You could need to offset the inner part of the triangle by just a tiny bit
    Edge: This should be done at a fast speed and low power, the idea i just to mark the small triangles
    Cut: This should cut the perimeter of each shape that make the puzzle

    I painted the shape with Poska paint markers just to give it a little color. This indeed makes it easier to solve if you see it assembled :)

    Good luck solving this one!!!!

    I want to know how long it took your 6 year old to solve it. Its a tough one for sure!:thumbsup:

      Well he did it i think in less than 5 minutes in his second turn. My second oldest daughter also solved it. To my surprise both of them solved it differently so i have already recorded 3 different combinations :)
