Introducing Homegrown3D’s representation of our favorite paintball marker: The AutoCocker!
Need a gift for your favorite paintball enthusiast or perhaps a new design for your paintball print farm? Adapted into 4 different uses: key chains, desk and shelf art, Christmas ornaments/hangers, and trophies.
This Paintball Artwork was created using SVG outlines, and designed with ease of 3D printing in mind. Created from an outline of a side feed Autococker, broken into layers and combined, then embossed and debossed from each other along with 3D shapes.
This is Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) optimized, meaning: quick to print, no supports needed, minimal material used, and great for print farming.
Note the detail and ease of printing achieved on the front pneumatics and hoses. When you print the design make sure you look at the pneumatic hosing details in your slicer preview to find the minimum scale for your nozzle size.
Keep reading for information on parts, materials, and tools to make the designs.
Key chains have a loop for your key rings. Use either basic key rings or lobster clasps, bronze chains, jump rings, and a jump ring tool for a real high end look. Printing these in Sainsmart 92A TPU (currently out of stock of any good colors, affiliate link) gets a real nice gummy feeling and relatively easy to print at faster speeds in this basic shape.
Displays the art on a stand. Printed in woodfill PLA, sanded and stained with a Polyurethane stain looks great! With our assortment of coming designs, there will be a nice collection of these for desks and displays. They are a great accent and table topper for product displays.
Christmas Ornaments and Hangers
Bring paintball into the holidays! Autococker paintball Christmas ornaments are great sellers, make a great gift, and are a great reminder for the rest of the family of what kind of gifts to give you.
There are two sizes of trophy bases on which you can use the autocockers for the topper. Customize the text in Tinkercad.
