Clarification from CJR - design a bottom ring but with pegs to secure to the base holes thank you - John

Hi John- Glad you like the iris box. I'm not doing any further work on this version. I would recommend printing my newest version which prints nicer, has more room inside, easier to assemble and does hide how it's assembled:

Great design, printing now - 2 made so far, any chance of you designing a base (similar to the ring) but with pegs to align with the base. It would hide the way the design is constructed. Thanks kind regards John UK

Like it, too. Especial the "Pfennig" from Germany. - Lange nicht mehr gesehen. :)

Ha yeah, everyone thinks I'm German. Don't know why those were around on my desk at the time...

I just printed one of these and am...baffled. How does the ring attach?

The screws go through the holes, not into the channels. The channels on the underside go on the pins of the base. So tape the leaves together, place them on the base pins and then the screw go up through the holes. Hope that helps.

I see now, thank you very much!

I was puzzled because the pins fit the screw-holes exactly, so well that I was convinced it was not coincidence! ;)

This is the first assembly I printed on my Solidoodle 3. Be sure to adjust your Y axis belts before printing or you will be slightly out of round. If the box doesn't operate smoothly or doesn't close/open fully, then you're printer is not printing a perfect circle.

Thanks for posting this, I was one of the ones asking about it at Maker Faire NYC.  It worked right off the print bed, nice and clean.
