Brass and Wood Fan
Frame Mounted 12-Gram Holder

Update 2:

After field testing and tweaking my design, I've narrowed it down to one of two options. Each has its own perks. The first one shown is centered on the grip frame but requires more post processing after printing. The second one is offset but prints cleaner and requires less post processing.



Update:

The project has undergone some minor changes since this original post. Here is a video of the completed model.

------------------------
I've got my next project on the printer this evening. This 12-gram holder mounts to the frame using standard bottomline screws. The 12-grams are held in place via o-rings that wrap around the outsides of each end. Hopefully this will allow me to be less picky about o-rings should they ever need replaced.

Oooh, now that is slick! I'm digging the o-ring idea.

Thanks, guys. My first version seemed okay without the o-rings until I tried different brands of 12-grams. Lelands fit fine in the first one, but Crossmans were way too tight. So, a friction fit just wasn't practical. The o-rings allow for a wider variety of brands with different outer diameters.

I'll let you know once I figure out time and materials.

I imagine these would be clear or the user's wrists and be very comfortable. I tried a friend's phantom with a RTR boomerang and the orientation caused the 12g to dig into my wrists and palms as I was playing. How easy are these to pop into a bucket changer with just a thumb?

Yeah, these will be completely out of the way of your wrists. As for how easy it'll be to remove the 12-grams, I'll find out once I get it finished.

What's your print orientation? I could see this possibly breaking at the mounting holes
