Still thinking about this design for use as a jigsaw puzzle…

The puzzle would need to be round or hexagonal in shape to provide the maximum number of identical pieces but assuming the puzzle’s picture was printed both sides then each piece could have just one of 6 x the number of complete dovetiles as a possible position.

Just taking a snapshot of one dovetile bounded by a circle perhaps illustrates the possibility.

I'm trying to cut these with a .0312" router bit and am having trouble with the fit up. The pieces are loose an not fitting tight. I've tried to offset the cut and it's worse. I guess I don't quite understand the way offsets work. I also have some new 1mm bits I could try out. I guess they are about .0394".

Hi Jammerm,

If it’s any help, here is the CAD/CAM generated toolpath (which includes the tool  radius offset) to use with a 1mm diameter cutter.
The datum is the centre, material thickness 1.5mm and overall the dovetile is approx. 50mm diameter.

Thanks Tweakie, I give it a shot. I suppose this would all change if I increased or decreased the size?

Yes it would.

50 mm is actually a good size. I want to make some simple puzzles for the grandkids, maybe 10 or 12 pieces. They can put it together right or go a little Picasso. :D

I did try to go to this fellows website but I think it's been hacked. He had a tutorial for routing the parts. All I got was a phishing scam.

Sorry about the dead-links.
 
You are the first person who has complained (about the missing trispokedovetiles pages) even though I lost my website hosting in January. I was not "hacked" but the gcehosting administrator seems to have gone out of business and the hosting company he was using (godaddy who are responsible for any scams) is serving various spurious adverts whenever anyone clicks one of my old links.

I have got the following pages back on-line with a different hosting company now so try these links.

I can't edit my earlier posts to correct the old links, sorry.

I've not done anything with this project since January.

Well, thank you Mr. Dow. I did not mean cause problems, I just hoped someone would take off the earlier links. The last one I clicked on nearly shut down my computer. A nasty Trojan, I think I caught it before any damage. No ransom demands yet anyway.
I just like these interlocking puzzles and have been trying to cut some. I have tried some that were fish or lizards, I can't remember what these are called. And,I'm not very good at code or CAD.
Thank you for these new links and I would warn everyone of the old links.

Hi guys,

I have removed the dead / hacked links from this thread.
