Found the comments on Jerry_XYZ's make of this, with the solution of filing body2 in three places to make the parts slide into place and rotate to lock. That's a good idea, I'll try this and report.
I *think* body1 and body3 are meant to be glued together as well, but body3 and body2 should snap-fit. However I managed to snap off one of the three prongs on body2 several times now. Any advice on how to get these to work nicely? Otherwise you can't take the thing apart to show the internals...

Print, paint and assemble all components. Zip file has all components or download individual parts.
The Chrystal goes in the chamber and then capped.
Glue the two lower body sections together (body one and three,) ribs on body one and cap and buttons on top section (body2).
insert bottom, battery, assembled chrystal chamber, amp chamber and beam chamber in lower body sections.
Gently wiggle the body top on. You may have to sand down the tabs a little to encourage them to go over the rib without cracking.
Body three and two should snap on and hold it all together so you can open it later to service it or put it on display.
Order of components assembly to come in the form of video soon along with pictures. The parts only go together one way and isn't too hard to figure out.
Be warned the crystal may need to print with support. I had trouble rendering a good looking crystal. I may make my own by hand or harvest one!
Print some components in different colours for variations.
I can't wait to see other copies!
I am releasing a kit of parts next that you can mix and match for more variations so stay tuned!
