This is a fully printable duck call. My son wanted one and I could not find anything here but searching the web I found these files on GrabCad which worked. This was designed by Doug Lanter http://www.RackEmCalls.com

Original Source:



Print one each of the files. I printed in PLA so the parts would fit together better (no shrinkage). The reed even printed and worked. I printed all at .20mm Layers and 20% infill and 3 shells except the Reed which was printed at .10mm layers because it was thin.

I had to scale the image up and it could probably use enlarging just a tad.

I used a cut to fit business card for the reed. worked perfect ! Thanks

Errrrmmm... To those of us that have never used a duck call before, you're suppose to inhale through it rather than exhale. Ive printed 3 bodies, 6 reeds and 3 wedges at different settings thinking it works like a saxophone and i must be doing something wrong.... Well, it does not work like a saxophone. But what an awesome thing once you work out how it works!!! Thank you! :D

Sounds like you are using the wrong end... Most common mistake with a call, so don't feel bad. ;)

:D ahahaha i feel rather silly... The shape of it got me confused, the rounded bit seemed like a mouth piece. Thanks for clearing it up for me!

Duck calls are meant to be blown into. You are probably putting your mouth on the wrong end.

Use a k-cup and it works great!!!!!!!!!!!

Quick question, where does the wedge go?

It holds or wedges the reed in place.

I was having troubles with getting the reed to sound right so i replaced it with picture paper and had a piece on top and bottom of the wedge. Thanks this duck call has helped me bring in more ducks than my $80.00 duck call i bought last year!!!

That's very cool

I couldn't get the reed to sound right so I used an old K-Cup and cut one from there. Once I trimmed it to size I was able to call in a few ducks. Great file! Thanks for bumping it over from GrabCad!

This works great. I printed in ABS. I didn't use any scaling.

I didn't think it would make noise.

You don't need the "Ring_fixed.stl" it was tight and didn't fit anyway. This looks like a decorative piece.

Cool. Yes, the ring is just decorative. You can change the sound some if you need to by cutting or shaping the reed piece.
