3D model description

Another 100% print in place box with a geared closing mechanism.
The download includes a small and a big version of the box.

Allthough the box is print in place, it is also possible to print the parts seperatly. The parts easily snap-fit together afterwards. This can be used to achieve a multi-color print.

If your gear mechanism moves a bit stiff, you can use a small amount of lubricant, this makes a very smooth mechanism
