Day 241 - Six-piece bar puzzle

The other day we picked apart the OpenSCAD code for althepal's six-piece ball puzzle (Day 239), so today we made a simple remix, removing the line of code for the enclosing sphere to make a six-piece bar puzzle. Our original intention was to add some spines or something to the ball, but this bar puzzle has a nice look, requires some dexterity to assemble, and holds together nicely once put together:
