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.
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.
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.
I only just saw this. Do you have a rough sketch is what you're thinking of?
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:)
Ok so not like this:
But between this:
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.
