Hey can you make a customizer for the lock system if not I can try but will most likely fail due to the fact I never used open scad

Definitely a good idea to do an OpenSCAD set of key and matching pins, and it wouldn't be hard to do. Not high on the list of priorities, but I encourage you to give it a crack.

how long does this take to make overall? and are any supports needed for any parts?

I designed it to print without supports. As for total printing time, It will depend on your printer characteristics and slicer settings. Best best is to set it up in your slicing software and see what build time it estimates.

Cool idea. A STEP file of your assembly would be nicer than SolidWorks files though, for people who do not have SolidWorks. STEP is an exchange file format that can be opened by most CAD programs.

Fair point, If I get an opportunity, I'll produce some STP files.

Finally uploaded STP files, hopefully they work.

Hi there! Love this idea! What version of Solidworks was this designed in? The copy of 2012 that I have access to won't open it. :(

What is the weight of this?

Not sure of the weight off the top of my head, I'll have to check the G code. probably in the order of 200g?

Around 200g? thank you.

oops, I was a LITTLE bit off... about 450g (430cm³) of filament for all of it, according to the G code (I have given my nephew the actual safe, so I can't weight it)

I have to admit this is really cool in the concept phase though I might never print it I still will say its really a cool idea. I was taking note to you saying that they where 8mm on the pins/tumblers...i think that they do make some of the hobby tubes/ rods that are steel or aluminum even that are 8mm round as an idea to look into and could be cut to tolerance and sanded maybe easier and might even work better for the lock itself if it is being "picked" just because they are smoother from the start. All just an idea to look into maybe, but again really cool idea on your part.

Thanks, glad you like the idea.

Good points on the potential to use metal pins. At this point I just wanted to make something that's completely printable (although I did end up taking some shortcuts around the locking plate and hinges), but I'm sure there will be others out there who will run with the idea.
