3D model description

Functional folding bipod, with MLOK mounting base.
The bipod can be folded and locked into 6 different positions.
It is also extendable, offering 6 different lengths, resulting in a bipod length of:
- 200mm - 300mm (long version) or
- 165mm - 215mm (short version)

Parts needed for assembly (per bipod):

  • small spring (from pen)
  • 2 x MLOK nut + screw
  • 2 x M3 nut
  • 2 x M3x25 cylinderhead-screw
  • 1 x M3x16 cylinderhead-screw
  • 1 x M3x8 countersunk-screw

Assembly is pretty straight forward:

  • the 2 M3 Nuts go into the corresponding polygon cuts.

  • the 2 M3x25 screws are used for the foot and the folding mechanism
    IMPORTANT: use screw glue for screws of the folding mechanism

  • the M3x16 screw holds the folding lever

  • the M3x8 secures the extendable arm from falling out
    For the automatic resetting into retracted position you can use a rubberband between the M3x8 screw and the M3x25 of the foot

The MLOK_Base & MLOK_Base_Plate stls are seperated in order to achieve better printing. These are glued together after printing (though MLOK_Base_Plate isn't totally necesarry)

I added two MLOK_Base versions, 45° and 90°. The 45° version is used, for a conventional vertical MLOK-rail. The 90° verison can be used on a 45° MLOK rail, like it can be found on some handguards.


3D printing settings

0.4 - 0.6mm nozzle, 0.2-0.3mm layer height

Tolerances are tight, in order to achieve a sturdy, not wobbely bipod, so make sure your printer is well calibrated.
if something fits too tight, you can use sandpaper or scaling in slicer, for me everything came out fitting perfectly without post processing

The parts are already aligned in the recommended print orientation, so you can print them, as they are dropped into the slicer
