Craft Sheets

Here, you can download graphics for crafting some of my planar puzzles. Print it, paste it on a board, cut it and play with it.

Downloads

Two kinds of graphics formats available for each puzzle; (raster) PNG graphics of 300dpi and (vector) SVG graphics. Most of graphics should fit in A4 size (210 x 297 mm) with enough margin. Some of recent web browsers can natively display SVG graphics (e.g. Firefox, Safari, Opera). There are also SVG viewer applications available e.g. Batik (a JAVA application), Gimp etc.

Crafting

Here, I give a brief desciption of how I craft these matching puzzles with paper cardboard, where the patterns are printed on both sides of tiles. (For puzzles consiting of non-flippable tiles, 2 puzzles can be made at once.) Required tools are a paper bond (or woodcraft bond), a cutter knife and a ruler.

PVC (polyvinyl chloride) foam board (also known as 'FOREX') might be a better choice for core material of tiles because it is hard enaough to play puzzle, easy enough to cut, and unlike papers, it won't be deformed by moisture (you may need adhesive which can glue PVC and papers).
