Cryptex Secure Box

March 09, 2018

Printed this Parametric Cryptex. This model is different because rather than working with pre-built STL files, you customize the output by changing inputs to a script before running it. The code is JavaScript for JSCAD, a project similar in scope to OpenSCAD but using a webapp.



I’ve found ColorFabb nGen copolyester to be an easy material to print, with the exception of supports which can be difficult to remove compared to ABS or PLA. Finished product is a bit more brittle but stronger overall and has a slick, shiny surface.
