Here is the ultimate 3d printed rubber band gun. Modeled after a Colt Government Series 1911, the WW3D 1911R prints in place. That is right, no assembly, no glue, no screws. Just remove the supports load and fire. I have included a removable magazine and collapsible targets that fit in the magazine for easy storage. It fires #31 rubber bands so no need to spend money on over priced "rubber band gun ammo".

Below is a link to the rubber bands this is designed for. If you use stronger rubber bands, or load more than four shots it may result in failure of the rotor.

Alliance Rubber 96315 Advantage Rubber Bands Size #31 , 1 lb Box Contains Approx. 850 Bands (2 1/2" x 1/8", Red) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B008X09PDC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_Pp.KCb72JE91W

*Because this is a highly detailed replica of an actual firearm, only print it bright colors to avoid it being mistaken for the real thing.**

3D printing settings

Layer Height: 0.2

Supports: From build plate only, if you are using custom supports ensure to support the rotor and the axle is spins on. Also remove any supports that extend up into the body as they will be difficult to remove.

4 shells

Infill: 30%

Orient the model so that the barrel is pointed upward and tilted at a 15 degree angle towards the top of the gun as seen in the picture.

Depending on your layer height, and your machine tolerances you may need to sand the edges of the rotor in order to remove the layer steps and allow for smooth operation.

I'll play around with it and see what I come up with. Thanks for the time you've invested in this. Much appreciated

If the mag is loose, that means your machine is better than mine. Mine get loose over time when the layer lines wear down. You can heat the back bottom edge of the mag and mash it a little to create a small lip that will wedge it in at the bottom.

Printed this with a MK3 with it on a 27 degree angle to fit the build area. All went pretty smooth and it functions just fine. Any specifics for the magazine? Mine seems to want to fall out.

I designed this in Fusion 360 and I use Simplify3D to slice. I have started learning Solidworks recently.

what software do you use?

It has been a while since I have used Cura, I think the setting is outer shell thickness, set it to 2mm and you will be good.

I'm printing this on an ender 3 and im not sure what i should use for the "shell" on cura, are there specific measurements that i should put in for this? sorry im still pretty new to this whole thing. Cura doesnt let you adjust the shell as a number atleast not that i know of. Thank you, awesome model!!

Required build volume is X 185mm, Y 35mm, Z 215mm scaling it down to 93% to get it below 200mm may be possible depending on the tolerances of your printer. I will test it out on my Ender 3 next week and let you know it goes.

What is the required build volume for this model?
