Evaluation of members on the printability, utility, level of detail, etc.

3D model description

This is a 2.5" Squarebill Crankbait. The lure is printed in two halves and then glued together.

Hardware Required to Assemble

(3) Alignment Pins (made from 1.75mm filament)
(3) #6 Figure 8 Hook Hangers (Available from
(2) .25" Steel Ball Bearings
I used #6 Treble Hooks w/ #3 Split Rings

Tools Required to Assemble

Razor Blade/Knife
Drill and Bits (1.8mm or a 5/32")
CA Glue (superglue)
CA Accelerator
Sand Paper
Epoxy (to seal everything up)

See this video ( for the complete assembly process.

There are two lure bodies included. One with details (gills) and one plain blank body for use with crayfish stencils. I've included a few stencils as a bonus (Basic Perch Stripes and Crayfish ones. (the Crayfish ones are fragile though) There is also a Blank Step file for the detail lure so you can make your own.)

Added a clear lip version by request. I have not printed or tested this one out myself yet. The lip can be cut from a piece of .093 acrylic (found at big box stores). It is a weird shape but it has to be because of the tie on and weights. (if you make this before me let me know if it works.)

IF there are any problems with the STL's or you have questions please let me know.

3D printing settings

I print this lure in PLA+ with the following settings

Top Solid Layers = 4
