Interlocking - Dodecon

Dodecon - Slid Partially Apart
Dodecon - Piece
Designer:Viktor Genel
Craftsman:Interlocking Puzzles

Most of Viktor's puzzles exist only in paper models. This is the first to be made by a known, outstanding puzzle craftsman. The Dodecon is a coordinate motion puzzle of three identical pieces (3rd photograph) in the shape of a stellated dodecahedron. When you find the right three points, an "unscrewing" motion will make the Dodecon begin (2nd photograph) to slide apart. If you take it completely apart, the six points must be positioned perfectly to allow it to slide back together.
