3D jigsaws represent the next frontier in puzzling. If you’re tired of the same, boring, flat lay puzzles, check out Hobbyco’s range of 3D puzzles for adults, available online or in-store today!
What Are 3D Puzzles?
3D puzzles are rapidly rising in popularity as more people look for a challenge a little beyond the task of putting together a flat jigsaw.
It will come as no surprise that three-dimensional puzzles add an extra level of complexity for passionate puzzlers. These days, you can purchase 3D puzzles that build everything from a replica Taj Mahal to an M4 A4 Sherman tank — not full scale, of course!
How Do 3D Puzzles Work?
3D puzzles tend to be constructed from a variety of materials, everything from wood to fabric.
Unlike a traditional two-dimensional puzzle, the finished 3D jigsaw is a physical product that can be picked up, rotated, and put back down again.
Many people wonder whether you require glue to put together a 3D puzzle. The vast majority of 3D puzzles for adults won’t need glue. In fact, depending on the piece material, it might cause pieces to swell and become disjointed.
Unless your puzzle specifically calls for glue, don’t use it! The pieces should be constructed in a way that they hold together naturally without the need for adhesive.

How Can I Display 3D Puzzles?
Unlike a regular 2D puzzle, you can’t frame a 3D puzzle and hang it on the wall. However, there are a few ways you can choose to display your puzzle.
Depending on how big and heavy the finished puzzle is, you might choose to use it as a paperweight or bookend! A finished crystal 3D puzzle can make the perfect tool to keep papers weighed down or books neatly stacked.
You can also choose to display your finished puzzle in a central location, like your coffee table or bookshelf.
Unless the puzzle specifically calls for glue, don’t reinforce the pieces with adhesive — even if you’re choosing to display it for a long period of time. The pieces are designed to hold together themselves.
