The impossible dovetail puzzle (yet, another one)

I wanted to challenge my nephews and nieces for Christmas. While searching the Internet, I stumbled on Clickspring machined impossible dovetail puzzle on Youtube.

All parts print without supports and are exported with the right orientation to import directly to your favourite slicer. I used standard 0.2mm layer settings on my ZYYX+ 3D printer.
