Do You can make this gun, but for 3d printer

Can you post a few more instructions on the assembly and particularly the trigger. Having difficult time with it. Any advice would be appreciated

The trigger is a little tricky. Basically you need a short section (about 3/8'') of rod. Glue one end of the rod into the hole in one half of the trigger handle, wait for it to dry, and then slide it into the hole in the gun. Then carefully glue on the other half making sure to line it up with the half that is already on. Also do not glue the trigger to the gun body as it is held on by the rod. I hope this helps, it has been awhile since I have made this.

Yes, this helps. I cut this out today and was struggling with the trigger.

Have fun! Feel free to edit the design. I bet it could be much better.

Hey Max,

I assembled everything and wanted to thank you. I added another complete trigger piece to the other side and made darts out of the circles that cut out, stacked and glued them (3D printer is down right now)

It didn't even occur to me to make lasercut darts! Have fun!

What size board is needed for this?

1/8th inch wood or acrylic. It has been a few weeks but I remembe rthat 12" by 12" was plenty large.
