Ivy Crystal

Ivy Crystal is a puzzle based on the idea of extending the theme from Eitan Cher's Ivy Cube. This time the cutting pattern is applied to a rhombic triacontahedron. There are two possible depths at which the puzzle could have been sliced. One would be shallower, turning only the faces and corners directly adjacent to every 5-way vertex. The other way is to make the slices as deep as possible, turning an additional set of faces along with the ones adjacent to the turning vertex. This a better analogue to the original Ivy Cube, while also making Ivy Crystal a more difficult puzzle.

Other Items Needed:

Dye: If you want the puzzle to be black, you can dye the pieces yourself with a nylon dye such as RIT or Dylon, or you can have i.materialise dye it for you for an extra charge.

Stickers: Please contact me for the sticker template. If you want professionally cut stickers, I recommend Oliver’s Stickers or Chewie's Custom Stickers.

Screws: Twelve 12mm M3 pan head screws required, available in hardware stores or on the web.

Springs: Twelve springs needed, available in web puzzle shops. I get mine from HK Now Store.

Degree of Difficulty:

Assembly: Moderately easy to assemble.

Solving: Difficult to solve.


Ivy Crystal turns well, and the mechanism is stable.

Have fun!

Welcome! My goal when designing puzzles is to create geometries that are visually striking and have a complexity belied by their apparent simplicity. Many of my puzzles use odd axis systems, and exhibit strange properties such as jumbling and shape-shifting. Enjoy!
