This is something I've been working on for a while in between other projects. Only a specific sequence of steps will allow access to its secret compartment. Check out the YouTube video linked below to see it in action. 

 

Designed in Sketchup and printed on my UM3, it's made up of 36 individual pieces which snap together.

 

I used a variety of filaments:

  • Ultimaker Nylon, Transparent and Black
  • Ultimaker ABS, Orange, Green and Gray
  • Faberdashery PLA, True Lagoon and Glacier Blue

    OK, I finally have the files uploaded to the 3D Prints section. Due to the number of pieces and the complicated assembly process, I created a YouTube video that goes through putting it together, plus some other important information to help make the process more successful. 

     

    Keep in mind that printing all of the pieces requires about 150 hours of print time and lots of PVA support, so proceed bravely if you're up to it!
