    The blueprints design theory basically gave us a "Trick X" sernario haha.

    The base was designed to allow for easy removal. This is either through safely lowering the Engine into the base and or outside of the display. Alternatively it was designed to have the top be replacable, and an alternative with the card inside was swapped during the blackout - maybe hidden close by like under the cake area.

    The culprit would be Dr.Schultz seeing how Sir Charles appears to be more than willing to prove the design made this impossible. Considering everyone else was fighting over the Engine she decided it was up to her to protect it.

    The emp was placed while everyone else was distracted by the reporter showing up, allowing time for her to secretly place it and close the door. Either that or she paid him off, considering his past corruption.

    This would leave the Engine hiding somewhere close by but somewhere people can't easily reach. So if it is not in the base, then maybe the cake was designed as well, but to be hollow to allow room.

    It seems like others are going with the edited blueprints too so let's run with that. Just wanted to check this red.

    "If the bottom flipped, the Engine would fall into the mechanisms."

    So in other words, ifthe bottom flips, but due to an electromagnet or something similar inside, the engine never falls and instead attaches itself to the underside would still be denied right since the bottom flips. The flipping part is basically only necessary for easy placement of the card so random alternatives could be used with even more rediculous blueprints.

    If that doesn't work then I guess I can just offer a follow up to another red, although it is unlikely.

    "The destruction/burning/melting of a physical object in the glass case would not be instantaneous enough nor thorough enough to completely avoid detection"

    The object was damaged under the glass area within the base, so it wasn't in the glass case and thus couldn't be detected. This would then allow for the distruction of the object to be a goal again.

    The rest the case doesn't seem too bad if we get the howdunit. I had a similar idea because of the printer clue, so let's try this.

    The Engine inside was a fake from the start. The card was inside acted as a catalyst to dissolve or evaporate the device leaving no trace. Either that or there is just a fake bottom that flips around, but that would defeat the purpose of the 3d printer I suppose.
