The Vault – 3D Printed Magnetically Locked Safe



You may have seen, elsewhere in my store, the Carbonyte Lockable Mini Safe. It’s been a few years since it was released and although I’ve always been very happy with it I’ve always kiiiiiiiiiind of wanted to update it a bit. The update turned into a total redesign, and now it’s probably the largest and most intricate design in my range.

The main difference, aside from the voluminous size, is the mechanism of the lock. Instead of just turning one removable key and swinging the door open The Vault has a magnetically activated locking mechanism. To the right of the door you’ll see a little gold tab. Attached to the back of the tab is a 20mm x 10mm x 2mm neodymium magnet, and embedded in the body is its counterpart. Moving the tab to the right releases the lock, you can then rotate the door anticlockwise until it releases then pull the whole door assembly out very slightly until it’s clear of the main body and then just swings to one side. To close it up again just swing the door closed, rotate it clockwise until it stops then move the gold tab to the left which engages the lock. Then you can remove the little tab and no-one will know how to make the lock work!

Yes, I know it’s not a military-grade uncrackable store for your multi-million dollar bling, but it’ll certainly be a handy store for all your little treasures you want to keep safe and private. Just make sure, if you’re storing anything electronic inside (USB flash-drives, SD memory cards etc) KEEP THEM AS FAR AWAY FROM THE LOCK AS POSSIBLE. Neodymium magnets are very strong and they’ll do baaaaaad things to magnetic data media!

I can even change the lettering on the door if you really want! Since this is probably going to be THE most expensive thing in my range for quite a while I couldn’t resist being able to change if it needs be. Just drop me a note, message or email and we can sort it out before you order. Why is it so expensive? Simple: it takes just over a week just to print the parts, using an entire 1kg reel of filament just for the gunmental silver bits (then even MORE filament to make the gold parts. It then takes about two hours to finish, dress and polish all the parts, then ANOTHER couple of hours to assemble and finish it. This has been why, although I’m very pleased with the whole design, I wasn’t sure people would want to pay that much. I guess we’ll find out!

    I have bought LOTS of these Bee Pods (as well as Bee Clubs) from Numonday (the seller is Trevor of Enterprise XD Design and I cannot speak highly enough of him or the Numonday experience – he is professional, great communication – probably the best seller on any marketplace I’ve ever dealt with and his products are FANTASTIC! Thanks to his pods and clubs, we have created a huge Orchid Bee following here in south Florida – we put drops of clove oil in the pods and clubs and the male Orchid Bees come and rub it on their legs to attract the ladies – Trevor – you are an absolute genius and gentleman and I hope to continue buying your products through Numonday for many years to come. Thank you for all you do for wildlife and the bees.

    Trevor never fails to astound me with the beautiful colors of his bee pods and bee clubs…. yes, they serve a valuable purpose here in Florida (I put clove oil in them to attract male Orchid Bees, who rub the clove oil on their legs) but they are just so beautiful to look at. Trevor, you sir, are a talented, professional and incredibly creative GENIUS with all the things you do for the bees – THANK YOU THANK YOU – will be ordering more. People in Florida just go nuts for them! We spend hours watching these fascinating Orchid Bees with the clove oil….. just wonderful.

  3. Weloveourbees

    They visit it every day – I put some cotton balls in it soaked in clove oil, and these little green shy Orchid bees (the males) come and gather the clove oil, and rub it on their legs, to attract the ladies. It’s easy to maintain – just basically screws apart – has provided me HOURS of entertainment and has helped the orchid bees woo their women. Brilliant invention and design!

    Mine is the large version, so it holds a lot more water and in Florida, it’s so hot that water evaporates quickly – which is why I asked Trevor to make me a giant one! It’s BEYOND my wildest expectations! It’s just fantastic – a real quality product – same color as the previous bee waterer he made me (that the bees love – except that one didn’t have a thread for a water bottle, so it dried up too quickly in this heat) – deep so holds a lot of water, numerous stepping stones and rims so that if a bee falls in (which she will), she can easily get out. It easily fits my sport top water bottles (so the thread is perfect) – It exceeded my expectations. Just WONDERFUL!

  5. Weloveourbees

    My Bee Spa is fantastic – it’s very large (diameter wise), so will hold a lot of water – FITS MY WATER BOTTLE PERFECTLY – it’s quite deep, so that means it will hold a lot of water, although the stepping stones and rim edges are very convenient so bees have something to climb out on to if they fall in – this is the BEST bee watering station I’ve ever had. It’s a quality product. I am BEYOND thrilled with it!!!!

    I actually got this for a friend of mine who is super wealthy, has all the jewelry she could ever want – and I didn’t know what to get her for Christmas – she also loves bees and when I gave her these earrings, she was absolutely THRILLED! They’re fun, bright – well made – and she wore these to a fancy Christmas party and got LOTS of great comments!!!!! I have a pair myself and am always getting great fun comments – they are just too cute for words!!!!! Great gifts for the bee lovers in your life – you can get regular honey bees or green orchid bee earrings – love love love them! Shipping was quick, but took a while to get here over Christmas (mail delays) but Trevor was very helpful and quick email responses. Great experience. Will buy more from you.

    I live in Florida, and we get beautiful, shy green orchid bees – the males love clove oil, so I put clove oil on cotton balls, put it in the bee pod, and the little dudes come right away – rub the oil on the legs so it attracts the ladies! The bee pod is easy to take apart to put more clove oil in there – and several openings mean several orchid bees can come at the same time – it’s the most ingenious design – LOVE LOVE LOVE IT. You have made me and many male orchid bees very happy. The design is really cool, this little sphere hanging from our deck shade, so it looks cool as well as being very functional for the orchid bees. Trevor was super responsive to a question I had about shipping, great customer service, will be back. Thank you!

  11. Weloveourbees

    Outstanding customer service – the Bee Feeder is amazing, I put some cotton balls soaked with clove oil (must be food grade) and the male orchid bees flock to it – I like this design because of the canopy, protects the base from rain – will be ordering more. Trevor is very responsive to email inquiries (was a slight delay with mail over Christmas) – buy with confidence from him, I have bought quite a few things and he’s one of the best sellers out there. LOVE the bee feeder and the color is awesome!
