Designing Department : Stainless Steel Pentominoes
Do you have Pentominoes (5-minoes) puzzles?
I guess most of us are much more familiar with Tetrominoes (4-minoes) puzzles through playing the video game, 'Tetris'. For details of Pentominoes and other polyominoes puzzles, please have a look at the Wikipedia page. Pentomino - Wikipedia
Members of our designing department have made a Pentominoes puzzle on the laser processing machine.
They are a bit plain as not being coloured. But let's put them together to form a rectangle.
Apparently, there are 2,339 possible solutions for this 6x10 pentominoes puzzle.
It would be fun to aim for a different solution each time.
The final piece completes the puzzle.
You can see that each piece has been cut precisely by the laser processing machine.
Stacked on top of each other.
There are also three-dimensional pentominoes puzzles, so it might be interesting to try making one.
The designing department has been drawing up interesting things as part of the training for a new employee, so we are looking forward to seeing them take shape.
Please check out 'Laser Processing Samples' for more objects processed with the laser machine.
