    Well, I pulled the triger on an FT-5. Will be here on Monday so no fun this weekend.
    Stay tuned for fun in the coming weeks.

    There are several guys in the different Dillon Groups on FB. This is one example:
    https://www.facebook.com/groups/928962933789215/files/
    The top PDF from Karl Bibb is his catalog.

    (I tried attaching the PDF catalog but the upload kept failing)

    That one has a primer catcher with and without tube. Not the rock chucker though.

    I know they are all selling things that are out there for download, so someone with a printer should be able to get the original files.

    ETA: I uploaded the PDF to my site. You can see it here: https://suburbangunowner.com/images/3d-items.pdf

    I have managed to print out a few useful (non-toy) items with my printer. While PLA is down right easy to work with; the more useful PETG can give ABS a run for the money in strength; without having to drop the printer in an enclosure.

    Simple search on Dillon from Thingiverse shows a few items you can download and print.

    Yep. To me PET-G, specifically T-Glase is the way to go. I had all kinds of bed adhesion issues with ABS ruining prints- and even if it stuck the warping was a PITA. Never really took to PLA, don't consider it a 'duty' plastic.

    T-Glase is tough. Build-tak surface on a heated bed at 60C with a glue stick. Very little problems. Made some new retaining plates for my MP 15-22 mags because I was sick of the followers springing off when I cleaned them. Made it so that are captured on the spring. A new spigot mount for my Sinclair tripod and a Labradar aiming device from a thread on The Hide. Barricade stops for my AR gamer gun. All kinds of do-dads for around the house.

    Sprinkler knob broke, to lazy to go to Home Depot, Printed a new one. A Caboose for my wife's families 'One Scale' german electric train- boom.

    Makes me wish I had taken more CAD classes. That is the real limit for me. From minds eyes to STL file is bad for me.
    I'll stop buying black rifles when my wife stops buying black shoes.

    How difficult is CAD to learn for people without that background?

    Some learning curve on CAD because you have to figure out the concepts of the tool. A block with a hole, sketch square and circle and extrude. Or extrude square and do a hole feature. Etc..
    To me easy, but I do CAD for a living.

    Sounds like there are people who learn the basics, then level two is expanding possibilities with creative engineering thinking outside the box?

    Is anyone making plastic cans (suppressors) for low powered applications yet? Are the operating temps for cans outside what the available materials can handle?
