Let me introduce myself

I have always been passionated about puzzles.

I like all kind of puzzles, in particular interlocking puzzles, but not only. I have a real passion for coordinated motion puzzles, which I find fascinating, and for puzzle boxes, with multiple steps for solving.

I have a small collection of puzzles, not a huge one, and I consider myself as fairly good solver, but in no way an expert solver, as I know some. At some point in my puzzling experience, I played with the idea of designing and building puzzles of my own creation.

I started to design and build a puzzle box in wood. The concept was good, and it worked. However I was not fully satisfied with my craftsmanship, and the quality of the build was not as good as the quality of the design. In other words, my hands and tools were not really apt to render what I had imagined in my mind.

So I started to explore 3D printing to create puzzles, improving my skills with 3D modelling and 3D printing. Early work remained at the stage of prototypes. After a couple of years, I managed to design and build a puzzle box with some interesting moves. I gathered some pieces of advice from friends and members of the puzzling community, in order to improve it. And actually I decided to present it to IPP 2019. Check out the article on this blog on Drawer Box, my first 3D printed puzzle.

I work know on a new version of Drawer Box, which I should have done before IPP, but it was too short in time and also on a couple of new projects. The next one, Swiss Cheese and Grape, is right now ready for testing.

This blog intents very humbly to present myself and my work. I will update it regularly, at least as regularly as possible.
