Click here to customize the Parametric Cryptex in the online OpenJSCAD preview

The parametric cryptex is a parametric combination safe. Size, number of code rings and inscriptions on the code rings can be modified and .stl files can be generated to print the parts on a 3D printer.

It also allows to set the margins between movings parts, compensating for the printing inaccuracies of 3D printing, allowing to obtain a functional cryptex on any 3D printer. This was the main motivation behind the customizable cryptex, parts designed for one 3D printer might not be functional when printed on another one, the cryptex having lots of moving parts is especially affected by this issue.

The parametric cryptex is made of 4 parts: base, lid, code ring and lock ring. The number of code and lock rings depends on the settings.
