I have 3d printer. Need some help with stick feed

Ok, so i jave a pretty decent printer. It has small print volume, but for the 200$ i paid, its worth it.

So, i want to make a stick feed and a small pocket hopper. However, on the stick feed, i would prefer it not to stick verticly up or past a 20 degree angle. I still would like it to be gravity feed but have that low profile angle.

Ideas?

I was thinking of using a copper coupler bent to about 20 degrees.

Or a spring fed system but not sure how to even deaign that.

Thanks

PaintballDNA uses a 3 printer, check with him.

Would love it if you updated a bit as you went. I have no need for the stick feed, but 3D printing intrigued me.

This. Feel free to check in with us in the 3D printing section too if you need any pointers.

Ello thanks for the posts.

Im struggling with ideas for the stick feed. It might help if you knew my intent.

I have a tippmann 98 that i removed the front foregrip, stuck a freak back on with insert and no front. Essentially it is a pistol. I have it remote lined, but it looks ridiculous with a hopper on it haha. Hence why i want a stick feed. It cane be cram and jam. However, after playing around, a verticle stick hits things, looks odd and not what im looking for.

I jave a ton of hatchbox and was thinking of just printing tubes that i can put in my glove or vest like mags. Its the adaptor part i need help with.

I would like the tubes to still be gravity feed without to much slowdown and not at a 45 degree angle. Maybe im being to picky haha.

The pocket hopper is for my other tippy

How about a cram & jam adapter kind of like on the Sanchez Machine stick feed but angled up to about 20* and extended to better grip the tube?

30 degrees (from horizontal) works well for me with cocker based guns. Doesn't stick up too much and clears my mask/visor. Given that you have a smaller print volume, I'd go with printing a cram n jam. If you want a stick feed, you could design it to accept a phantom feed tube.

The cram & jam is going to be the better option for 3D printing anyway. Wall thickness on a tube will be an issue and it could easily snap along layer lines.
