Product Info

Panex Galaxy is an extended version of the classic Panex puzzle, invented by Toshio Akanuma and manufactured by Tricks Company in Japan in the 1980's. Whereas the original Panex puzzle has two columns of pieces that need to be switched and an empty one, Panex Galaxy has three columns of pieces and an empty one. The challenge of the puzzle is to swap the silver and gold columns. If you can solve the classic Panex puzzle, you can solve this puzzle as well. However, the solution for the classic Panex is highly inefficient for this one, so you may want to find a more efficient solution. The staircase design assures that each color can only be moved down to its specific depth.

The frame and six colorful pieces took near 9 hours to 3D print on a Dutchy 3D printer, plus some gluing. 77 meter of 1.75-mm PLA filament was used to print it.

Deisgned by Oskar van Deventer, who 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.
