    Laser Cut Cryptex - Puzzle Box

    I attached the 3d pdfs. NOTE: on the static wheel pdf file there are three rings; the ratchet mechanism with the spring arms, the main ring with the 4 nubs, and the ring with the notches for the ratchet mechanism. Now in the main assembly file, the first static ring as show in the file only contains the ring with notches and the main ring, with no ratchet mechanism. This first ring is the only one that is DIFFERENT from the rest of the static ring assemblies. ALL the other static rings are the same as shown in the "static wheel" 3d pdf file.

    I designed mine to have 14 letter wheels, and they are all solidworks files. I'm not sure if uploading them here will actually work. If not I can send the files to Da3da1u5 and they can upload them to the instructable if they find them suitable.

    these are just the files i came up with

    So I converted all the dxf files into a solidworks models of my own so I could modify it to my own needs and try to understand how to assemble it before I cut the parts. I have some questions still about the static and dynamic disks.I attached some picture of my solid models. For the first picture, what keeps the ratchet mechanism for the letter wheel stationary? Is it glued to the back side of the static disk? if it wasn't secured in some way, then the ratchet disk would rotate, and there would be no clicking sound.For the second picture. I still down understand why there is that ring without the letter notches. Is it glued to the letter ring, so it can rotate as well, and make the clicking noise or is there really no reason for there to be that ring, and I can just use another solid s...see more »So I converted all the dxf files into a solidworks models of my own so I could modify it to my own needs and try to understand how to assemble it before I cut the parts.

    Why not make the ratchet and ring portion of the static disc assembly just another one of the solid plates, so it can not rotate at all? It would mean less peaces, and easier to assemble.

    Can someone post photos of the static and dynamic disk assemblies? From what I can interpret, The rings on the outside of the static disk look like they can still rotate because of the ratchet mechanism.
