The Labyrinth Box is basically a two-part print. One of the parts is a maze which is also known as a labyrinth carved on its surface. The other part is the cap which comes with a pin. The cap goes on top of the labyrinth. The moment you start removing the cap, the pin starts getting directed by the carvings. To separate both the pieces, you have to make the pin follow the maze in the correct direction. If you can’t solve the maze, you can’t open the box! 


Puzzle Business card

Business cards are an essential part of networking, so why not stand out from the crowd and make an instant impression with a unique 3D printed business card? On Thingiverse, you will find various business card designs to 3D print. My favorite is a card at first but when you assemble becomes a Velociraptor skeleton.
