I got the surfacing in Rhino to a place that I’m pretty happy with. I’ve now taken that base surface into Fusion 360 where I’ve nearly completed a fully parametric model – I can adjust the grip, forend, LOP, comb geometry and should be able to swap these out for different varieties (e.g. butt hook,… Continue reading Parametric Progress
Testing out these modifications. Higher palm swell, and including the trigger guard to make sure reach is appropriate. Maybe I’ll do one in plastic, one day?
Since I lost a bunch of posts about this when the site was taken down, but here’s the broad summary: Hybrid competition / lightweight hunting stock Removable weights in forend and butt for balance and recoil management Canted, sided grip for improved ergonomics Adjustable comb so you can actually remove the bolt / have other… Continue reading Rifle Stock P3

When I get around to it I’ll replace them (I do have back ups… Continue reading Rolled back
Few more issues to iron out, but we’re back. I’m behind on updates for the rifle stock too, so I’ll hopefully post up the new bits soon.
Progress is slowly creeping onwards – I’ve laminated the red beech blank together, ready to ship, and the CAD for the P2 prototype is just about finished. Here’s a brief summary of the improvements from P1 (top) to P2 (bottom) In tangentially related news, I’ll soon be adding the Ruger M77 hawkeye geometry as an… Continue reading P2 vs P1
I’ve decided to push ahead with a finished model of this – I don’t want to rig it, but a fully sculpted and resolved still will be fun. So, I get to experiment with poses and fiddle around to make the weight, intention and moment feel convincing. It’s tricky.
It’s amazing what no internet will do for doodling.
I’ve purged a whole bunch of crap from the site that wasn’t doing me any favours – a couple of pointless sections in the sidebar, as well as removing comments all over, as it was just attracting a lot of spam. Superthanks to atarashiicrane.co.nz/
