What have you made?

Recommended Posts

I think we lack a thread for the more creative and technical side of things like homemade accessories and 3D printing/CAD.

 

So... what have you made? Or, are making right now? Can be anything from cutting and filing some mask to suit you, to more grandiose projects like making your own ghillie suit, or some 3D CAD model of yet another M4 handguard. Concepts and ideas are cool too if you have something to visualize it.

 

I guess I'll start:

 

Made a lightweight outer barrel for an M4 from scratch in fusion360:

barrel3.thumb.png.c758e402c44fb99fa0c09f45f7cef73b.png

 

Gonna make a lightweight handguard to pair with it and then print them both in a bronze/copper finish. Dramatic weight losses inc.

This one's kind of been abandoned recently as real life has gotten in the way but here's the front end of an M-LOK rail extension for my SCAR H DMR. I got as far as a first test print and starting to redesign it to work out all the problems that brought up but I haven't touched it in months now. The plan is to also design and print a suitably sniper looking replacement for the ugg boot

Last year's stuff

 

I had a go at making a bladerunner deckard blaster using resin. 

I'm soon to do V2 using a DWL kit for a h8r. A more viable option than spending nearly a grand on a delicate and rare HWS deckard blaster replica. Although I still want one. 

 

A working airsoft blunder buss converted from a denix replica. Fired mad bull shotgun shells. Tbh you could convert almost any denix flintlock to fire shells. 

 

And I had a tm uzi that the trigger snapped on, so I grafted the body around a KWC mini uzi to make a GBB uzi. 

 

I've done other stuff last year, I made a semi auto spas 12 shell ejector from a maruzen m1100 and a broken TM, a wrist mounted grenade launcher for about £2.50 but I can't find any photos.

So ye............ Special filaments like silk copper are extremely brittle, significantly more so than regular pla. They're only usable as mechanical parts if the entire thing is thick and solid. The barrel legit just snapped as I was removing the supports.

 

Oh well. Gonna try again tomorrow.

Getting better and smoother with each print. Can't even see the layer lines anymore. Need to sort the vertical artifacts and tighten up the knurling part as it's a bit sloppy.

Fed up of cz mags falling out of pouches? Fear no more. Designed to latch onto the cords of pouches that have them:

Just need to make grips of the same colour to match.

 

Also, further refined my amplifier to the point where you can't even tell if it's a 3d print anymore:

Proper chortle.  So, after posting my pic (above) to Facebook's Airsoft Heretics group (worth a join), this chap was inspired to make his own Astra Militarum gear in one 40-hour week constructing frenzy.

Have I started something?  After all this blows over, I'm half seriously wondering if it might be possible to put together a squad of the Emperor's faithful at some national event or milsim-lite.

 

I mean, it is milsim, just from 38,000 years in the future. :D

I'd be well up for something like that, especially running as a heavy bolter team or something

A small selection of some  of the stuff I make. I also do metal work but breastplates and chainmaille arent really relevant here though I do intend to make some aluminium sci fi body armour at some point.
