A Burr Puzzle consists of at least three rods intersecting each other at right angles. The most famous and well known type is the six piece burr where three sets of two rods intersect each other.
At this site we let you explore six piece burrs. You can select either from a list of a few precalculated burrs, or you can select six pieces of your own making and then have us calculate the possible solutions for you.
