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!
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
