Introduction: Electric Lock
a good working printed electric lock
Step 1: Design
after a lot of shapes in tinkercad i made this
Step 2: Print It
print the .stl files (modify the parts for solenoids and shaft if needed)
Step 3: Parts
my solenoids are 16mm diammeter and 20mm height. the shaft is 6mm diammeter the parts are from an old laser printer
Step 4: Glue Them
glue those items with epoxy glue
Step 5: Shaft
add the shaft,a spring like the pics, then add those cylinder items to the shaft (glue them with instant glue if needed)
Step 6: The Other Shaft
modify this part for your shaft if needed
Step 7: Lock-unlock
connect those parts together with some screws (this must can move easily)
Step 8: The Other Spring
add like the pics the part for the other spring
Step 9: Diodes
add diodes to the coils to protect your control circuit
Step 10: End
its ready this work with 24v dc.

hi!! i like tinkercad because is very simple, and i dont know how to use autocad or something like this...
the sollenoids are from an old big laser printer you can find lots of them or like them in laser printers, but are working at 24v DC. I would prefer 12v but those i found
Very nice design and I love that you did it in TinkerCAD. I use it all the time!
Where did you get your coils or did you make them?
