Hi! First - sorry for my bad knowledge of English, actually i`m from Russia.
Puma Punku is a very strange place, and blocks are like LEGO from the first look..
In order to research this fact, i began to create 3D-models of all block, may be it could be usefull for all who are interested in the ruins of Puma Punku.

Models I'm doing, based on drawings from the book "Die Ruinenstätte von Tiahuanaco im Hochlande des alten Peru"
(The Ruins of Tiahuanaco in the Highlands of Ancient Peru) by Alphons Stubel and Max Uhle, 1892.
I also use numerous photographs, if I have doubts about the accuracy of the size or measurement error.

In order to catalog the model, I introduced the concept of "Stubel Catalog", in which each block has its own number. For example, Figure 1.

The main objective - promotion of archeology, ancient architecture. And also to enable people of different professions to participate in the study of Puma Punku.

The model of each block is presented in two formats, Google SketchUp 7 (*.skp) and *.dwg.

Here's a ready-made model, the rest I will spread as I`ll finish them.

Welcome to UM Redfox.
I never realised how similar lego and the stones of PP actually are, good point. I think that the fact that they didn't use mortar, makes it the more plausible and logical way to build though.
Good job on the renderings btw. :tu:

Hello such, the issue I am very interested, download the file where you need more figures of 27, 28, 30, and more models, but if like me pass me the book where more images are missing, please, to create 3D-models of all block.

Of all the UMs I wonder about this is one of the top 5 easily.

It is something I really would like to see in person someday.

Just remember: those stones were carved from red sandstone, NOT granite or diorite (as the fringe want you to believe).

Beautiful and accurate as they are, they are not impossible to reproduce right now.

Even with primitive tools.

I know they're red sandstone -all the bigger ones anyway. The entire feat is still a mystery to me.

Oh my god, this is amazing! Thanks for doing this, it makes you wonder what it looked like when it was still standing.

Very cool! For hard stones like granite you use soft metals and for soft stone carving you use hard metals. Sounds counter intuitive but that's how I learnt how to carve stone and I learnt from 2 of australia's best masons. Granite is not as hard to carve/sculpt as is made out.

I agree. There IS NO explanation for Puma Punku.

would you mind elaborating what you mean by "hard" or "soft" metals ?
mind letting us know who this "two of australia's best masons" are ?
