3d printed project

I don't post enough, so I thought I'd share a design I've been fooling around with. I was looking at the price of winchesters right now and was like, screw that I'll make my own. I have a little bit of access to a 3d printer, and managed to get a model built up in sketchup. I tried to make it lower than the Winchester (based on dimensions people have posted) with a flat top that would take a pod lid, but with crisper lines. Finally printed it this week, and the printer screwed it up making it just barely unusable, so I haven't sanded it down. I learned a lot though, and I think it's still pretty cool, so here it is in it's raw form:

This one on got 48 balls in it, and I was trying to get 60ish, so that's something to work on.

Make the angle of the main body so that it's a little fatter at the bottom and I bet you will get there. Don't change the funnel portion if you don't have to.

That's a good idea, that's the area that's creating errors, so that'll probably have to get rebuilt eventually anyways. There's 2 screw mounts there that I think are the problem.

Hey I own a 3d printer, If you want I can print some of these out for pretty cheap if you get me the files.

Thanks, I'd like to fix the design a bit more, but I might take you up on that when I get it working as I can't print a lot of anything right now.
