    Hi Nikhil Soares,

    I only designed a puzzle in Solidworks once, so I don't know too much about it. These videos show you the process of designing twisty puzzles in Solidworks:

    How to pillow a puzzle using Solidworks

    How to make a Megaminx on Solidworks

    Twisty Puzzles a la Vi

    I recommend trying to find some more tutorials on making basic shapes first, and then get familiar with the techniques shown in the video (making a sketch, creating a surface by rotating the sketch around an axis, and pattern the resulting surface around).

    If you need more help, you can try using the forum at, too!
