What a wonderful design! Thank you so much for sharing it!

I think I'm going to try and make a variant of this with a servo motor to open it. Can you imagine? It would be incredibly over-the-top, but also sick.

What an interesting idea!! I would definitely encourage you to try it :) Im curious to see how you'll do it. It would be sick!

A big thank you to PlasticBarista for the help about the problem I had around the gear.

I have a daughter tomorrow morning there will be very happy this box, and then in her favorite color silky red combined with snow white.

Hope your daughter likes it!! Thanks for your help in debugging the problem with me!

Not having tried print this yet, it looks like it would be difficult to remove small object. What has been your experience so far?

for me it was really easy to take the supports off with a nose plier.

Right, but say you put a coin in the container you've printed. How hard is it to reach in and pick up the coin?

It's not the easiest thing to do :) Im working on a square version, that would be less novelty, more practical.

I love the mechanism. At some point I need to try designing moving parts.

Hi PlasticBarista
First I want to say what a nice design and what a great idea.
But I have some problems with the tooth on the shaft, the tooth broke at the first testrum

Hey Eliasen,
Thanks for your praise, and also posting the picture. Looking closely at the picture, I think this is something due to some printer settings. I'd jump into your private message, and we can figure that out :)

Excellent desing sir! , can you make a same desing but square or cubic form?

Thank you Rdorigo! I can definitely create a new thing soon :)
