Disaster struck again last night as I tried printing another. Just like the first failure I posted here, the print turned to spaghetti at about the 9 hour mark right at the hole for the bolt handle. At this point, the only thing I can really think of to make these reproducible on a larger scale would be to print horizontally, but that would increase print time to more than 12 hours each. I may do one off prints now & then if the mood strikes me, but right now I'm pretty much done. I'd like to get at least one more clean print with smaller layer lines for my 007 made. After that, I'm thinking I'll have to move on to the next project.

Almost have it. My 007 has a thick powder coat that is interfering. Just have a little more sanding I think. I ended up printing it vertical, with 3mm trimmed from the front to make it flat and stick to the bed. I forgot that something printed length-wise this long will warp with my ABS and pull off the supports. If I get into my PETG or nylon, I might try that again.

Nice. I'm looking forward to seeing how it turned out. I've been having bed adhesion issues myself lately. I think I'll return to mirrors and glue stick with this roll of PETG. My last spool of this stuff printed smooth as butter. This roll has given me only the one successful print so far. It's maddening.

I added one more version this morning with a flatter front. The original version, while very comfortable, has proven to be very difficult to print without breaking free of the print bed. This one has a flatter surface, which should hopefully be easier to print.

I want one. But I don't have a printer. But, I know companies that do urethane casting...

I might look into price point for a run of 20 or 50, versus the other crazy plan I have for a pump handle.

All I ask is that these are not to be resold for profit.

If i were to go forward with it, I'd keep you in the loop. Especially if it's based off your model. But I have a few too many things in the fire to actually go for it yet!

One down. It has been pretty well tested for strength as I filed and sanded on it, then test pumped it for fit many times.

That turned out great! I can see why you needed to sand the insides down too. That coating on the body looks pretty thick. I like it!
