As awesome as being able to 3D print this is... I'm glad to hear you've considered injection molding these as well...it'll certainly get them into our hot little hands that much faster...(coming from a plastics guy )
I didn't get real excited until your comparison video...now...I'm excited!

Industry says for years they won't build a 100 round forcefeed hopper because it's not financially viable.
Simon releases the design for free as open souce.
Paintball community goes nuts
Suddenly, someone wants to build and sell them.

Seems like the thought process for many people is
1. Awesome idea
Many people just don't know how to do #2 which is where open source/crowdsourcing is awesome. Anyone can draw up a picture in MS paint/photoshop etc., another person/people can draw up designs, yet another person/people can make them.

You've really opened up possibilites with this and shown a gaping hole in the industry. Maybe, hopefully this will bring a new kind of old school modding back instead of the cookie cutter products you see now. Maybe we'll see the group of guys standing around bragging on how they customized their guns like in the old days. Thank you Simon. You've gained a follower.

Seriously awesome. Thanks so much to Simon for being in the community spirit. When I started 16 years ago you had to be a player and an airtech. Nowadays it's all straight out of the box. I too miss the creativity and originality of community built projects. So looking forward to see what else results.
