This is a model of the Goddess Chest from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. I designed this to house a sound module that you typically find in a gift card. The switching mechanism has been replaced with a reed switch.


Just a note: i have two chest legs denoted by "fl" and "fr" (front left and right), but it's rotationally symmetric, so front left is also back right. So just print a total of 2 pieces each.

I was looking for some chest for my zelda diorama and this one is great, now I´m only have to find someone with a 3d printer, but, the most dificult part is already done.
Thank you very much and keep up the good work!!!

This would be an awesome ring holder for a proposal.

What are the dimensions of the inside of the chest?

I printed this out to scale as it was model in, Please don't take this as a negative comment, you did a great job with inlay shapes, and here comes the But, I only say this because I think there is design lessons to be learnt here, boxes and chest are tricky thing to get right, try to have a go at it again with this design concepts in mind, "Golden Ratio rule" IF you don't know what that is, there are a lot of good explanations on this subject concerning designing. also how it all comes together, you have a top and a bottom so obviously there will be hinges ,I would of like to see some kind of cut out so the hinges would fit flush, also I don't know if it was part of the design? I had to take it into netfabb and fix the top and bottom because halfway it would print a solid right in the middle which made this nice size box smaller on the inside.

I'm confused as to what aspect of the chest you're addressing when you mention the golden ratio rule. If you're talking about the design of the chest itself, please note that it's not my design and I referenced the 3D model and assets from the game. If not, I would appreciate it if you elaborated.

As for hinge cutouts, I built the model quickly for the purposes of making a gift for a friend. I was lazy and didn't bother to add space for the hinge.

Solid in the middle? never had that issue with the prints I've made. Perhaps it's an issue with the orientation of the model in your printer along with any support structures you're printing with?

did you try 3d printed hinges ? if so which once did you find works best ?

Looking to make this the appropriate size for an engagement ring. Would anyone happen to have any suggestions?

scale to 40% and its perfect for a ring! lol sorry i'm sure i am very late on this!

The chest cavity isn't that big, since it tapers, so I'd say it's good as it is, but you might be able to shrink it down by 20% and still have room for the ring.

How did you get the surfaces so smooth? I can never manage to get mine like that

I noticed that the model for the top has a small area on the front right side (when looking at the crest) that's incomplete. Its a small hole in the left "swirl". Is there a version that is fixed?

Forgive my directness. I'm excited. I found out there's a 3D printer I can use within biking distance, and since I've had my eye on this creation of yours for quite a while, I have a few questions:

  1. Where is the Instructables link other commenters have mentioned?
  2. What material did you use? ABC, polycarbonate, etc.
  3. What size is the one you made? I know these things can be scaled up and down, but I'd like to use yours as a starting point.

The instructables link is no more?

instructables link is broken?

fixed the link. Thanks for letting me know.

Also, which soundboard did you get? It should be programmable via USB. The website I've listed provides you software to upload a WAV file.

blargh. i hate the new instructables. I didnt even see the rest of the steps. I havent gotten a soundboard for this project yet. I have had lots of trouble in the past getting a setup working.

That is a nice print, Did you do any smoothing or is it just paint? Or do you have a great printer? :-)

I wish I have a great printer. My instructables has in depth details about the paints I tried. But this version of the chest shown required some sanding, some base paint to smooth things over, and then more paint for the color.

Oh and the link to instructables has Thingiverse embedded in it.
