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
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
It fits! P1 prototype build is complete. Now for the fun bits; Finishing up the blind magazine so that it’ll feed correctly Final weigh in Stress testing (aka, will it explode?)
After a lot of mucking around, stalling, being stalled, things are looking positive to get prototypes 1 & 2 built out of Wellington. I’m not doing any further development on the stock until I get P1 back in my hands, as I think at this stage it will be largely pointless as there will be… Continue reading Back to it
Now for the waiting game to build the first prototype and see if this actually works
Bit of experimentation with branding (not really my forte) while I nut out the finer details of the CNC process.
