Functional Pin Tumbler Lock Model
by Thing-O-Fun, published
I made a small window in the "Outer Barrel" to view the key pin pushing up on the driver pin.
This was a quick project to familiarize myself with the design constraints required for successful FDM designs/prints. I thought I would distribute since it could be fun for teaching and demonstrations.

I downloaded this project but it won't open in replicatorG. I click open and select the file but nothing shows up. Do i need a machine connected in order for the software to work? Because at the moment I am trying to make some modifications and not print right now.
I would love to have a lock like this. Did you purchase it that way from somewhere or did you cut out those sections yourself?
