A simple coin trap for either nickels or quarters, made in Tinkercad. Pause and insert a coin halfway through printing.

if you dont like to pause the print try this

print two at once- then the print head will move out the way and give you time to drop coin in
print 1 cube and 1 pillar some height again print head will move away

hey this is a great idea!!

Is it possible to get the source files to adjust size etc. without tinkercad etc.?

From that link you can also get the OpenSCAD file to change in other ways if you wish.

Customizable Coin Traps

You can download the .stl file and import it into Blender or any other free modeling software and scale it in there. Also, you can scale it in the MakerWare software(that is if you are using a MakerBot printer).

Yaya we can print quarters!!!!
