Introduction

A (Neo-Victorian) Cryptographical Engine inspired by the Enigma Machine.
There is an online gallery with pictures of the several stages of the build.

Cryptographical Engine Mark I

Codename: Alan

Body

The body will largely consist of existing typewriter parts. More information to be written.

Keys

More information to be written.

Rotors

These will be custom-made. Largely out of wood and brass. Most parts will be designed in openSCAD, testprinted with a 3D-printer and eventually cut out of sheets of brass.
A, probably not up-to-date, version of the design files can be found here.

Stepping Mechanism

More information to be written.

"Plugboard"

A cryptex-like cylinder similar in function to Enigma's plugboard without the need for plugs. I still need to work out the details and put the entire design on paper. And come up with a suitable name, of course.
