THE KEY OF THE CASTLE

The star proof of the night was to find the specified key from the rest inside a big box, in order to collect a great gift. The concept of creating a physical piece would be very appealing to the children, and it was.
The children searched and went to play to the museum’s room called “the factory of the keys”, where in turn a 3D UP printer was making more keys. A very fun party for all!
We created 4 types of robust keys with different teeth and colors, color only to mislead, and also 4 countermoulds to verify correctly each type.
All was designed thinking for a future game itself .. (now available in our webshop).
Due to the very short lead times, we planed to make all the pieces in an in-house production, a real DIY project, printing around 50 keys with 2 Prusa i3 printers (thanks Miguel for letting us your), and a 3D UP printer (thanks Marc). The process of creation and production was carried out in one week.
