HammerShot PETG-Ready Cylinder #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Zackfreedman shared this fun project on Thingiverse!

Are you a Nerf Internet Community diehard who uses Stefans, Slugs, domes, or other homemade darts? Do you like awesome sidearms and/or dual-wielding? Print this replacement cylinder and make a HammerShot ready for the most competitive NIC wars.

This replacement cylinder has six slots to hold PETG tubing, which can be purchased from industrial and plastics suppliers. The tubing is more consistent and airtight than 3D-printed barrels. Printing this cylinder from ABS or PLA, then combining it with commercial PETG barrels, lets use your preferred printer and filament without sacrificing battlefield performance.

To clarify, this model requires PETG tubing to be glued in after printing. You can print the cylinder with ABS, PLA, or any other material. Visit a Nerf Internet Community site like nerfhaven.com to find a supplier.

The HammerShot is a great sidearm because it can be cocked and fired with one hand. You don’t need to drop your primary, and you don’t need to cock it in advance and risk a misfire. Since this new cylinder has no air restrictors, you’ll get 30-60 feet, no problem. The extended barrel length maximizes the dart’s launch time for a smoother shot.

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!
