3D model description

Easy to print and assembly Swimbait! 100% working! No epoxy needed!

I worked really long on this lure, so please leave a like and a make!!!

There are 4 different Heads and 2 different Mid parts. Look on the first picture and you will figure it out ;) I also designed Line Thru Head versions. You find them under remix.
If you want a swimbait without lip, use the head from my glide bait. it works!

For assembly instructions scroll down.

Print settings:
100% infill
2 outer walls
0.1 - 0.2mm layer height
no support (only for Fin)
no top and bottom layers (only important for S3D users)
Print orientation like on pic 2!!!

I allways drop one pellet of silica gel with tweezers into every air chamber while printing. So i have a rattle sound and i notice when there is water inside. (then there is no rattle sound anymore)
But with my printer and settings it is waterproof without epoxy.

Doesn't Matter







Assembly instructions:

You need:

4 - 5x eyed screw m2 (see pics)
Glue (i use 2 component epoxy glue, i don´t think super glue is good)
1.0 - 1.2mm stainless wire (strong spring steel wire. 1.2mm is a tight fit and better)
0.4 - 0.6mm wire (doesn´t need to be strong)

There is also the option to use fishing line instead of wire (as shown below)

Before you glue the parts, assemble it without glue! So the holes are bigger and you can see how everything fits!
The best way to glue the screws is to dip them in glue and screw them in.
