A very simple hinged treasure chest that is printed in two pieces. The hinged pieces snap into place very nicely and the hinge is snug enough that the lid can remain partially open without falling closed/open. Images show chest printed at layer thickness of .27mm, so it would be even cleaner at a lower setting.

Chest can be printed with NO RAFT SUPPORT. The image shown here is without any raft support on either piece.

Lid and base printed separately.


The .s3g files are the ready-for-print versions of the chest with 10% infill, 0 shells, .27mm layer height, and feedrate of 40. If you'd prefer to adjust the scale and settings, grab the .stl files instead and export your own gcode.

Print lid and base and then snap the hinge together. Very simple and straightforward.

I'm running into a lot of problems with the arms breaking off when I try to attach the two parts. Any suggestions?

This is very cool. It reminds me of when I was kid, maybe in first grade and lost a tooth while at school. My teacher gave me a tiny plastic treasure chest to put the tooth in for safe keeping. That chest was my prize possession for close to a year till I lost it. It is funny the things we remember from our chile hood.


@athey, what's that on your profile pic? is it a printable model?

Awesome work, I'll be printing this as soon as my current piece gets out of the printer!

The thing in my profile pic is a piece of the zelda shoulder pauldrons that I created for my daughter's Zelda Ocarina of Time cosplay. I don't have the files for those available for anyone else though. I'm not sure yet if I'll share them or not. They're finished now though - they're on my tumblr, but I think you'll have to go back a page or two to get to the pictures - http://aya-macchiato.tumblr.com/http://aya-macchiato.tumblr.co...

very nice!

What did you model this in?

Autodesk Maya. Whipped it up in about a half an hour because we needed a last-minute wedding gift for a friend. Planned on just getting one of those 'money cards' but they were all lame. So instead, I modeled a zelda chest and we put the cash inside it.
