Kit set BB gun pellet trap (Ressetable)
by dgmossman, published
This is a pellet trap for BB guns. The triangle point of the target spinner should( in theory) catch in the small slit on the front plate when the small cicular target is hit. The big rectangular target can then be shot to reset the trap back to the original cicular target.
The targets can easily be exchanged for your own designs (they just need a small slit in them).
This is my entry for the Make magazine competition:
EDIT: I have updated the model (STL files only) so that the BB's will not be deflected back towards the shooter, when firing through the bottom target.
The parts should be able to be printed and then assembled with the holes and studs aligning. As this is my first ever 3d printing model, can you please let me know if it is not possible to print parts of the design.
Or if the design does not work, I can easily adjust the angle the triangular point is on, so it requires less force to engage the rectangular reset target.
I made a mistake and thought that the top plane is normal to the Z-direction in solidworks, but unfortuantely it is not! Therefore the STL files are shown in the wrong plane to be printed. Hopefully you can rotate the STL files 90 degrees (about the x axis), yourself before printing (If not, please let me know).
