This is a puzzle box that requires a spin to unlock. The mechanism that locks the lid in place is itself locked by four 6mm BBs, which can be printed in place, or placed during the print.
A simple spin on a reasonably level surface allows the lid to be twisted 20 degrees, which allows the lid to be removed. However, closing and locking the box does not require any tricks; simply insert the lid and twist it to lock.
Note: If you want to test the locking mechanism and tolerance before committing to a full print, you can print the included test models.
- Print the top.
- Get four 6mm airsoft BBs ready.
Note:You can also print a version of the bottom that includes the BBs. Just insert the lid and twist it closed like normal, and the BBs should break free. Be warned, sometimes BBs don't print well for me.
- Start printing the short or tall version of the bottom.
- If necessary, insert the four BBs when their chambers are printed but before they're closed off.
