This box is really cool, i absolutely love it. I decided to print a large one, i printed it at 140mm diameter (which is 220% of original size) and it has printed really nice and looks fantastic. But sadly it won't stay closed :-( the mechanism has printed and works perfectly, but im guessing due to the weight of the iris leaves is enough to pull down and untwist the box :-(

Here is a little video of it - https://www.dropbox.com/s/fzod8jhfyyy202y/20170715_195505.mp4?dl=0

Can you think of anything i can do to add some resistance to the twist mechanism to help prevent it from opening on its own? Many thanks, i still love the box it is so cool!
