I've tried other designs like this http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:651654
but the wheels didn't turn ok (so tight), so I designed my own version for this nice toy.
The secret is fixed, I mean, you need to choose 6 numbers and print them. You can change the sequence of these numbers, but you can't fully personalise the secret like other designs.
One advantage, this prints faster (less parts) and the usefull inside diameter is bigger.
Nice prints !


The two main parts are:
0-Cryptex-Base.stl and

Choose 6 numbers to print.

Gaps are great for a prusa-mendel 3DP. The wheels turn just ok.

Enjoy !

So, I printed this and(in the end) it turned out good. Maybe it was my filament flow or the callibration, but the parts did not fit that well together.
The inner diameter of the ring segments was in my case a little bit too small, and the space in between the respective rings was too wide. I used some sandpaper to ensure a good fit on the 'pipe'/ main body, and I printed small 'washers', with the basic geometry of the rings, but only 0,25mm high. Those washers were put between the rings.
I coloured the numbers with some lacquer, and wiped excess out with a towel

how would one go about changing the code if i wanted to print this and have my own combination
