"The Hexagonal Porcupine is to Hectix/Hexsticks as the 18-Piece Burr (e.g. Lovely) is to the 6-Piece Burr. There are 12 rods in each of the 4 directions as compared to Hectix's 3 rods. Sample pieces are shown in the second picture. The inner rods have unusual notches. It takes several moves to get out the first piece. If one of the center pieces in the puzzle were notched around all pieces it hits, it would not be split in two, but would have a very delicate helical structure." -Bill Cutler
