    Hi. I am interested in puzzle designing and wanted to design one too! I have already installed Solidworks so can anyone help me about how to design cubes in SOLIDWORKS?

    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 twistypuzzles.com, too!
