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.

So I have the barrel, tone board and the wedge all printed really nicely they fit together great. Just can't get a good reed to print, not sure what is going on. Had one I thought would work out of PETG but it just won't rattle I don't think it's stiff enough. Tried with PLA too but no dice. Also tried tuning it a bit by moving the barrel around and nothing. Unless someone can give some suggestions on how to get the reed dialed in I'll just go pick up some 0.010 mylar and cut a reed. I'm not sure how people are cutting the k-cups? They're curved? Am I missing something? Great post thanks for the project!

I made this for a friend. It works so great! We were just surprised that it worked. Thank you very much. I just made his day.

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

You are supposed to depressurize your lungs when you use your calls by exhaling

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!!!

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.
