After attempting my first 3D Locket, I decided to try to challenge myself a little more.  I was talking to my boyfriend about how it would be neat to make a small Stargate that would open up a locket. This would be a good time to tell you that I Love Stargate and I have seen every original series episode, spin off series, and all the movies! Anyways, my boyfriend helped me design the demensions of it.  The basis of it is that the knob turns on the front piece and when it is the right postion it unlocks.  This is done through a lever inside. Inside there is a place for photos.

Step 1: Front Design

This is the front piece. I had to carve out a place for the lever and also for the "knob". The overall sizing of the piece is 1.5" x 1.5" x .5". I also had to place holes for the hinge. I originally wanted chevrons on the front of this piece and designed one with it. It was a little too much so I went back to a simple design.
have you printed this yet? you should add it to the free 3d prints group: <br />http://www.instructables.com/group/free3d
It is in the group! Thanks!
I would definitely buy one of these :D how much would it cost to make?
I'm not really sure. I've not had anything printed yet. :( Sorry. But I am sure someone else on here can tell you!
