Working Flintlock Model #3DThursday #3DPrinting

From entomophile on Thingiverse:

This is based off of the fantastic CAD model by Ivan Spasic https://grabcad.com/library/flintlock-mechanism-3-positions. I divided the model into parts and converted them into stl files for printing. All the parts can be downloaded at once in the “flintlock” zip file.

The cock, lock plate, and frizzen each have two versions. A whole part and a “split” part that I split in half to make it easier to print. Glue the halves together. The tumbler is the only part that needs supports.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
