Product Info

Smuggler's Soma is a Soma Cube in which one can hide "diamonds", which are actually 3D-printed transparent pins. The object is to hide as many diamonds as possible. Even though there are 34 cavities between the pieces, not all can be filled, because then the cube cannot come apart. So the question is: how many diamonds can you maximally smuggle in this cube? George Miller found a solution with an incredible 25 diamonds. Is this the maximum, or does there exist a solution with 26 or even more diamonds? George was also the person who came up with the "smuggler's" theme.

The puzzle took 16 hours to 3D print on a Dutchy 3D printer. 44 meter of 1.75-mm PLA filament was used to print it. The puzzle weighs 132 grams.
