Savage rodent shared this project on Thingiverse!

This is a remix of Combination Safe 00.

I decided to try and make the original cryptex more accessible to the visually impaired so I’ve made the folowing modifications:

Key Features of Remix:
1) New outer ring with braille characters 0-9 or a-j if u choose to read it that way.
2) The Inner_Ring and Inner_Shaft have been modified to work as a ratchet. This means the rings only rotate one way but if turned in the opposite direction the ratchet will hold the rings at precise increments, making it easy to line-up the numbers.
3)There are two versions of both the Bottom and the Inner_Shaft. The standard version and Gide Bar (GB) version, the later features two bars indicating where the combination is to go.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
