Buttpad

Post by Phil » Mon Mar 20, 2017 5:06 pm

I finally had a successful print using PETG for the base and Ninjaflex for the flexible pad. The pad printed really well, at a very slow pace. S3D gave me an initial time of 1008 minutes, but as always it took much longer. I used very thin internal structures to provide the cushioning. I made slots in the top of the pad to get the screws in; one slot printed perfectly, but the other was slightly rough. All in all, in seems very functional, and I will test it by shooting soon.

You do not want to know what I thought when I saw that title! Chuckle! :lol:

I will gladly send you the file, although this one is specific to a Browning 2000. I had no choice but to design my own; I could not find a manufactured pad to fit.

Chuckle! Thanks, but the last thing I want to do is encourage more hunting trips! :lol:

Great job on the pad though. :D
