Description:
Hello,

I am building an escape room themed like an Indiana Jones/Tomb Raider movie or games. Think lost temple (Aztec or Egyptian) style.

If you have ever done an escape room and thought “I’d like to design a puzzle” this is the contest for you!

I am looking for Puzzle ideas, that can be printed on a 3d printer (I have a FlashForge Creator 3, so my 3d printer supports a large build volume 300*250*200mm) the puzzle can be in many parts if big is your thing!

The puzzles should be themed to the room and can use electronics/servos/sensors/switches anything I could build/control with an Arduino is fine.
internally mechanical and “puzzle” designs are also welcome.

The puzzle can be a single object or a set of objects (ie a locked object and a tablet with picture graphs as the solution/key to the puzzle.)
Let the imagination run wild!

there is the opportunity for continued consulting work for the winning designers,

I am happy to take messages of ideas and give feedback, Q/A etc

Software: As long as I can import it to Autodesk 360 and then to my printer I don't mind what software is used, flexible on this as long as I can print it!
Wants:
Please keep measurements metric
Puzzle look and feel
Time to solve, reset ability
"fun factor" "cool factor"
consistent with the theme of the room
The sturdiness of the design, pieces need to be durable and snug and able to take the expected abuse.
Don't Wants:
Nothing too simple
Software:
  1. Autodesk Fusion 360
  2. Autodesk Inventor

#9 Pyramid of Ilumination by sawomird
Model contains four slices -four "levels" of pyramid. Slices are connected coaxial by rod, and have a possibility to 360 degree turn (exept of lowest layer, wchich is fixed) In the lowest layer there is a place for laser pointer and its batteries. In every level there is a hole for laser beam, but only right combination of pyramid sides makes a clear way for laser beam to top slice. In the top slice there is a mirror bending a laser beam in 90 degree and the beam goes through a hole in top slice side, pointing at another object or clue.

let me introduce you to the ABAYOMI escape puzzle. the puzzle is based on the Egypt theme and operates on electronics and hardware. the obstacles are as he following.
Obstacle 1: GET THE stick
Find the stopper pin from the chessboard removes it to free the scroll. when the scroll is turned then the stick appears to form the other side of the box.
Obstacle 2: ACTIVATE BUTTON PUZZLE

#6 Escape Room Puzzle Castle by alexm5
Hi,
This is a simple puzzle with a single stage of solution and given a provision to add many in the future. The basic idea is a castle as you can see. The side structure roof is rotatable and it's the key part of solving the puzzle. The inside hidden container will slide out when the puzzle is solved and there is no need for a reset. It will reset automatically.
The operation method is attached as a PDF. Please let me know if you need any clarification.

#3 Escape Room puzzles 3d model design by siddharthd
Hello, I made Escape room puzzles model inspired by some puzzle box design. player have to find the door for escape from that maze type of room. I also added door at the last of the maze room. I added other objects for decorating rooms. For making it more complicated you can hide the escape door by almira or other type of furniture. I just made it by my own concept. you can edit it by your own way. I hope it will be fine. I submitted .blend and .stl file format in zip file. If I done anything wrong then I'm really sorry about that.

#1 Escape room puzzle by banuk
Hello contest holder,
This is my idea. In this participants should take ball through the maze. At the end of maze there will a mechanism that opens the lock hence opens the box. You can hide any clue or key inside the box to complete any other task in room. This is just an idea. If you like this and think it suits your theme, I will continue further. Maze in model is just to show idea it is not final.
Thank you

@siddharthd .STP files, or anything i can open in Fusion360,
while you can include the STL files, they are an older format and hard to edit so having the 'source file' is a must. If you used a particular program that's totally fine I can easily get whatever program you used if needed to make any edits.
So basically, you can upload the STL and then the source file in its raw save.

Hii Michael ,
I am on it and completed 70 % of the work.
I want to know that do you want Arduino codes too?

@Rodaditya
I am more than happy for you to message me with ideas and i can give feedback/thoughts. I have two printers so I can also prototype print usually within a day or so.

okay, i got the idea behind. My doubt was that do I need to provide the STL /3d files for the internals of the common locking mechanisms like a padlock or would introducing just the outer body and mentioning about it would work.
As in would you directly print the files if it convinces you or are you open to improvement iterations once you are interested in the idea?

@Rodaditya it can be any type of puzzle you can find in an escape room.
We are trying to avoid traditional 'padlocks' and plain combination locks we can buy from the hardware store. However, a themed combination lock would be acceptable.
The puzzle can be small or larger, have a few steps or plenty of steps and can even be part of a 1 - 3 puzzle group.

it could be a box, or something we that would be mounted on the wall, floor or cabinet etc.

Greetings of the day,
I wanted to know about your expectations from us. For example, if there is a padlock type of locking mechanism do you need us to include that too or just the puzzle box with info for the common locking mechanisms.

@MohamedBz, Please feel free to use other software, just say what it was built-in
You can always export the files so I can open them in Fusion360 anyway. I am only new at Fusion360, and I have tinkered with Solidworks too, so whatever you want to work with is good for me!
Thu, 16 Sep 2021 23:05:48 +0000
Dear contest holder,
is your project limited to AutoDesk softwar only or we can use other softwars? as for my participation I use SolidWorks 2017 and PhotoView 360, does it meet your requirements?
please to feedback as soon as possible so we can participate!
thanks for your time and consideration...

Russian Doll Maze Variant
Hello Designers! I am looking for a variant of the "Russian Doll Maze Puzzle" on Thingiverse. Here's a little bit about the project: I run a small home business in Utah that provides 3D printing services for the local area. Lately, we've been donating our extra machine time to making these puzzles for charity (Anti-boredom bags for children in hospital waiting rooms.) They've been a massive hit among the kids, however we've been hearing that the locking mechanism is 'unsnapping' over time while the puzzle is assembled, making them inoperable. We'd like to remedy that for the future! A few required design change specifications: 1. Cylindrical instead of Octagonal 2. The maze "Locking" mechanism needs a fix. Currently, it snaps "Up" into position, however the clicking mechanism is small and wears down, resulting in older puzzles 'locking' inside because they've come undone. We're looking for innovative solutions to solve this issue (potentially rotating sideways at the end, instead of up, to add another safety mechanic) 3. Thick bottom and outer wall for embossing names, if chosen. Needs to be strong enough for children to not break with regular usage. 4. Difficulty of maze appropriate to 8 and up age levels. Dimensions overall approximately 4" height, 2 1/2" round. 1/8" to 5/16" inner wall construction (solid).
