Product Info

Dovetail Cage is a twelve-piece cage puzzle. The pieces are held together by dovetail connections. The cage comes apart in two halves, which can then be further disassembled. The puzzle is not extremely difficult, but it can be confusing to solve.

The set of six pieces took about 16 hours to 3D print on a Dutchy 3D printer. 60 meter of 1.75-mm filament was used to print it.  The filament is based on transparent PLA plastic that is infiltrated with 20% of wood fibres, giving its wooden look-and-feel. The three types of wood used are birch, mahogany and black wood.

Oskar van Deventer has created many different puzzles including his brand of Oskar Puzzles which are mechanical puzzles and objects that can only exist thanks to 3D printing technology.  Since 1978, he has been creating hundreds of mechanical puzzles, making him one of the world's most prolific designers. Several of his innovative designs are commercially available.
