It may come as a surprise, but the 6T puzzle is comprised of 6 T-shaped pieces that have to be packed within a 3x3x3 box. The puzzle was 3D printed with each of the Ts in a different color and an open-top silver box with 6T debossed on the side. Immediately, you know there is some funny business going on if you are required to pack 6 Ts made with 5 cubes (that’s 30 altogether) into a box that can accommodate 27 cubes. It quickly becomes obvious that the triangular half-cubes of the pieces have to be leveraged to jam those Ts together.
I should mention that Dr. Volker Latussek had designed a Six-T-Puzzle that was made by Rombol, but I don’t believe that it is currently being made. This puzzle was previously mentioned in the post, Puzzle-A-Month Challenge.
