3D model description

A puzzle I designed in Fusion 360.

Remove the ring off the cross. Simple right?
Difficulty 3/5
Hint: Uses an Engineering principle.

Consists of x 3 parts and can be all printed at once.
I printed the Ring a different colour in my example.

If you can not solve on your own there are a few different types listed on YouTube which use the same principle.
