    This reminds me that I need to make a "For-Sale" thread very soon. How well are CCM parts holding their value these days?

    I converted the EPS to SVG in Inkscape without a problem. It came up fine when I viewed it in other programmes, including some web browsers. So know it can be done if you need to do it, and feel free to ask me to do it if anyone needs that done.

    Assuming that the trend of the stable prices on CCM will bottom out sometime around PBE?????

    Anyone having issues editing the files? Inventor isn't letting me do anything with them. I'll have to try it in my copy of SW I guess.

    Nevermind. Had to stitch the surfaces so it would recognize the solid.

    Also, Simon you need to work with PE on a design. I want a Hornet version of one of their guns.

    Here's what I came up with

    I like it. Might I suggest flattening the front a little because it will require a full support raft to vertically print currently. It could be printed from the other side but then you run into issues with the slicer adding support all the way up the holes. Actually it might be printable at the 45 degree angle without to many issues. Maybe I'll give it a go if you can save it as an stl.

    Roughly 2/3 the way there. The printer wasn't at all happy about those over hanging radii on the angled face but it soldiered on through. It would handle it much better with chamfers.

    oh wow. that looks very cool. I just picked the 45? angle at random, I think 30 or less would be perfect.

    Excuse the ringing. I haven't dialed it out of the printer yet. Printing fast in PLA with a 0.2mm layer height, 2 perimeter layers, 25% infill.



    Attached the STL for it.
    Missed this earlier. It looks fantastic.

    I need to modify the ego pump idea to use these handles. shouldn't be too hard to modify the pump plate since the outline is included in the files.

    I'll let you know how it feels. I think you're right as the 30 would give you a bit more grip for your front finger to engage with the pump handle.

    I lowered the nozzle temp 10 degrees on your handle and the filament is printing much better on this second one. The finish on the first one was terrible. I switched filament brands recently and I'm still getting a feel for the new stuff.
