Could you please describe how can I add letters on the heart?

Is the size of the one with walls smaller than the one without?

how do i re-open it?

Do I need to make my own heart.stl file? I see it must be loaded in SCAD, which I use but have little experience with. When I Complile the SCAD file it makes a rectangular shape...


HI Theuns, Off course you do not have to make your own heart.stl. Its is
the exploitable heart from emmet. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:6190http://www.thingiverse.com/thi... . I am sorry that it wasn't clear. Good luck!!

Exploitable Heart

What size do you recommend making this?

Depends on your printer and what you want to put in there. I printed it at 100%. It has thick walls so I got multiple perimeters for my 0,5mm nozzle. I had to fold the money pretty small to get it in there. The endresult is about tennisball size. If I would print it again I would probably change the scad file to get thinner walls.

i can't put it together ? whats the trick i can get three out of the 4
pieces but can't get the last piece in

Hi Dynamic, It is a bit complicated, I would make a video but I haven't got the heart here at the moment. The trick is to slide the three parts apart again. At some point you can slide the 4th one in. Then you will have the heart like it is in the picture and you can slide it together by pushing on two opposite parts alternatly. It would probably help if you have one hand more. I found the pieces with walls are easier to put together because you have more to hold on to. I'll see if I can make a video later this week.

thats pretty cool design, but are you sure they just didnt take a hammer to it to get to the cash?  if I were you, I would ask to see the original heart. also check for signs of glue.


 I had a close look on them while they were trying to open it, not surprisingly the Bride figured it out first ;)
