Rapid Ball Sizer prototypes.

Since this has become a new project of it's own, I've started a new thread for the rapid sizer project.

Original discussion here:
New Ball sizer

The ultimate goal for the Rapid Sizer is to be able to sort an entire case of varying paint into their respective sizes.

The common opinion is that the biggest limitation in paintball "science" is the imperfection of the paintball itself. By sorting your paint, you can significantly reduce the variations in the paint that you use for testing, or identify the type of variation that you've had to deal with during testing.

This could also be good for the stock class or limited paint player, who has to make a smaller payload of paint really count.


WE ARE CURRENTLY ON REVISION C





In this revision:

We've shortened the sizer from 16" overall to 12" overall.

We've added a "ramp in" section on the left, designed to help accelerate the ball.

And we've moved on from the stepped-slot back to the progressively expanding slot.



The REVISION C Rapid Sizer is 24 dollars with shipping (extra for international), and is available for your experimentation starting today.

If you own a previous version, get the latest version for just 15 dollars with shipping.

Revision B was the first public release, and is viewable here:


The plate was 16 inches long. It has 10 graduations and each graduation is 1.4 inches long.



The steps are .0025. So they are very hard to see in the rendering.



Here it is in action. That paint is the same brand from 2 different bags.

REVISION B is no longer available.

It's a one-by-one roll 'em down, so far. The plate is designed to be attached to a frame that the user would design. The frame could have a hopper mounted on top.

However you want to do it. It's a very experimental project. For those that like to tinker.
