A Cryptex made for our geocache.
The rings are hard coded.
Print time was about 20 hours.


Print 12 abstandsring_p and glue always two of them together. (back to back)
Print huelse_gross and remove the support legs and the small rods in the slot.
Print 6 rings with the code you want. Remove the support material so that the bottom looks like the top.
Print huelse_klein and remove the support legs.
Put one ring on huelse_gross followed by a double abstandsring_p.
repeat this to the end.
Glue the last abstandsring_p to huelse_gross.
Wait until the glue is dry.

Have fun.
