After I found the really cool looking Rubber Band Gun from KAZKIN, I soon realized that I must have such a thing. But can't buy one or get the right plans to build it on my own. So I've tried to make my own cool Gun, for the normal "Monday morning office war"
And of course for my son :-))))


I'm sure most of you don't need any advice, but you should make all Parts as strong as possible.
That Thing is almost complete printable, you just need a small Spring an two screws. I made the holes for a M3 screw tap.
The bolts are intentionally a little bit too long, cause you have to correct the upper/lower edge after printing and it's easier just shorten them. Sometimes you have to care about the edges of the holes to, depending on which PLA/ABS and/or Printer you use.
i hope you enjoy this Toy and publish many pics of your own copy.
Just by the way, the Chassis is about 6 hours and the other Parts are 3-4 hours printing time.
But it is worth it...

I've added the frame as individual files and even a new slightly larger med sitze Frame, also single Files for left & right.

Do you know the length of the pegs? I've got a cheap da vinci and the won't print so i'm making them from a 3/16 dowel rod

It would have been great if you had replaced the spring with a short rubber band. This would also get rid of the screws because you could add a hook to hold the rubber band.

Hi, printed this from ABS and after some tuning began work. Thank You!

I know what you mean, well that is the tricky part.
You have to make sure that the wheel is in line and can not be pulled forward by the rubber bands. Otherwise you have to scrape off a pice of the Y Nose.
But of course you can also have weak spring used, hard to say...

Hmm, printed this and I cannot get it to work. The trigger assembly does not pull the sear far enough to disengage the band wheel.

OK, here is the chassis in separate files.
I had made the files for the R2 Platform..

Can you upload the chassis individuality, the size of the STL is just a little bigger then my print bed.

AWESOME - I can't wait to print this!!!
