Locked Dovetail Triangle Gift Box
by sneakypoo, published
I found this cool locked box and decided to redraw it to make it bigger so I could stuff some cash in there. I also made it a tighter fit and a bit more rounded while I was at it.
The name on the side is not included in the model I uploaded of course.

I had to sand mine down to and made sure they would rollÂ uninhibitedÂ but still opens sometimes when upside down. I noticed that if it does not open upside down that if I shake it about a bit (while flat on the table) I canÂ usuallyÂ get it to open.
Still it's a great piece and will make someÂ recipients very happy. I will just print some extra rollers to give with it as spares for lost ones.Â
Â As a follow up. I checked the box that didn't work as expected and found that the discs didn't slide unhindered into the slots of the big part. I dragged the discs on a sandpaper a few times and now it works much better.
Strange, I just checked my two boxes and I have that problem with one but not the other. Hmm...
As for the other problem, yes, that bugs me a bit as well. Blame the original designer :D I tried coming up with a solution but I quickly decided that it wasn't worth the hassle for me. My first thought was to lock the discs in at print time in their slots but then you will definitely have the first problem since they can only roll down and not up.
