A python script to generate OpenSCAD models to generate two parts of a box that screw together and snap fit if you find your way through the maze :)
UPDATE: because I got so many requests from people I now offer printed versions for sale at: http://www.hackerspaceshop.com/3dprinting/a-mazing-box.html contact me for custom mazes :)

Actually the maze pattern comes from the attached greyscale png :)
To regenerate the model adapt the png filename and the variable "part" in mazebox_clean2_stable.py (1 == bottom part, 2 == top part)
The png must be grayscale without an alpha channel.
The python script is a mess but I needed to get this done before xmas... Also sorry for the weird filenames, but thingiverse does not let me rename files...
The model was intended to have exact 1.5mm wall thickness when intersected with a plane parallel to the XY-plane (to get skeinforged into 2 layers) but the 3D inset operation is tricky so it sometimes is a little less but the repraped parts are still very stable after my makerbot printed for two hours :)
