3D model description

This is a REMIX of only the case parts of Da Vinci Code Cryptex by Yazhgar. For the models of the rings and the directions, please see the post by the original author. Also, see my additional notes below.

My remix has the inner tube for the "upper" case slightly narrower so that it will slide in and out more easily. I also added a fillet around the bases of both the "upper case" and "bottom case" so that it feels better in your hands while playing with it.

Also, I found that stopping the print height (on both case parts) at 36.3 mm works well for a 2-ring cryptex and 48.5 mm for a 3-ring cryptex. Smaller cryptex toys work well for kids and for demonstrating how they work.

Looking for a little something to put inside? See my Sword Simple & Small.

3D printing settings

I printed with 0.3 mm layer height and 20% infill.

Rings Notes
Files for the rings are with the post by the original author (linked above). When I printed the rings, I scaled the x and y directions of the inner ring to (101%) and left the z-scale at 100%. For the outer ring, I scaled x and y to 101.5% (although one filament needed 101.75%) and left z-scale at 100%.

I printed the rings with 0.2 mm layer height.

I design with Mathematica, CorelDRAW, Fusion 360, and Tinkercad. I love my MakerGear M3-ID and my Palette 2S Pro. I have a Prusa MK3S as well. I started a 3D printing sub-site, but it needs some updating.
