My friend Albert Gübeli in Raperswil CH (
<> ) invents puzzles and addresses now his ShiftPole
with an internal mechanism. The former modell used transparent shelles.
He asked me to analyse the puzzle. I did it with a simulation in Excel.
It is a difficult puzzle. There are similar deepcuting puzzles in
MagicTile (MagicTile/ell/sph/cube/E101 and
MagicTile/ell/sph/octahedron/E200) and GelatinBrain (3.3.7 and 4.3.3).
My Excel simulation had 24 well differentiated oriented pieces. See
