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?)
Bit of experimentation with branding (not really my forte) while I nut out the finer details of the CNC process.
Did a bit more exploration of how the wood part of this will work. Pretty confident with this, now to learn more about the carbon fibre.
Something I’ve been fiddling with for a while. Building a rifle stock solely out of carbon is very difficult, and requires at least a 3 part mold, and typically an inflatable bag system. This design would only have carbon in the forend (the adjustable cheek piece is optional, I guess), and would only require a single sided… Continue reading Hybrid stock
