Are you sandblasting your parts?! They look awesome.

Super cool!! Thank you for sharing this.

This is so awesome, great work!!!

Fun design. Printed nicely. I printed the one that is non-locking. how do you get the hinge to stay in place? still with the magnets, one on each box wall and then some inside?

it says so in the description...

Could you post a video of the box in action? I'm really intrigued by the final result.

Wow I am really impressed by the print quality, what's your layer height ?

Thanks! I think I used 0.125mm for the boxes, 0.1mm for the key, 0.4mm nozzle. Normally I'd use a smaller nozzle for embossed lettering, but smaller nozzles can be challenging with metal filaments and I don't have any hardened nozzles in the smaller sizes.
