    Hi my Friends,

    I was away from posting since I switched jobs and running between freelancing and my daily job gave me a headache. So had to turn my forum time into production.

    I made this natural frame for my girlfriend Nora, but it was simply too good to shoot. That small frame was really comfortable to hold and greatly pocketable at the same time. I've been jealous :D. But the deal was done, had no way back so I started to rebuild the frame in 3D and made a print for myself.

    Also made video about the BLO bath I used. The stuff is a gas heated bath for apiary frames, capable for 60 liters of BLO. The frame spent in 14 mins @ 90-97 °C.

    The final 3D frame ended up at 24 grams in total weight. Including bandset. That's fairly good for my EDC needs. As usual from me it's a hollow construction with the needed supporting walls inside.

    Hope you like it!

    Last but not least: Happy New Year to You!

    Nice to see you back again, and two very nice creations you got there!

    BTW did I see a hole in the bottom of the EDC slingshot and do you use it for a lanyard "knot in hole method"? Or is it just because the slingshot is hollow from inside?

    @ Schultz
    Good to see you my friend! That music is one of my favorite for sure. BTW Dead Kennedys were my lieblings durings high school years. Still the best :)

    @ LW
    Thank you and good to see you again!
    It's because it's hollow. I usually keep the knot outside, coz like to use it as a handle or just leave it outside from my pocket. But I'm planning some modifications :).....

    Am using this tri-hole like shown on the picture. It's more comfortable to me.

    and there are two work in progress images for my preferred lanyard mount. Bit difficult to carve but tasty for me.

    Welcome back Tremo! Great to see you around again!
    Excellent work, as always. Great looking shooters, and really clever to turn a natural fork into a printed version!

    I wonder how many folks on this forum could say "I really like that natural, I want it for myself" then can go and reproduce it using 3D printing. Well, if the comment comes from Tremo, I already know the answer :) It's clear that you have an eye and a mind for design whether something new and innovative (like your Bugsy Printshot) or recreating the shapes of nature. It's a great style, simple, yet very usable. Nice work. Of course you know, this could be marketed, though I know that's not your intention :)

    Glad you hadn't gone for good!

    I really like both of these, the grain in the natural is great! What type of wood is it?

    The printed one is just plain cool :) Very marketable ;)

    Nice job on both of them!

    (EDIT: May be a stupid question but what does EDC mean?)

    Hey Tremo!

    I like what you made (me see)!
    Really artistic photos of really
    Beautiful shooters!

    but most of all: good you´re back!
    (although changing forum.- to
    construction time is a good decision!)

    best regards,
    a successful year 2014 to you!

    :D yeah, good to hear you say that! Actually that's a work in progress and my theme is anatomy. Inspired by artworks from Vesalius. Still need some time to finish but it's fun.

    Hi Angelic, good to see you around, am glad you like it!

    Will my friend, thanks for stopping by. I've really enjoyed the adaptation process. Had to change a few things to make a possible alu cast later but only minor compromises been made. Have a nice day :)

    Withak your generous with those words above. Thanks:eek::) a lot. I have so much joy in making slingshots and to share it here. Your feedback is very appreciated and just made my day, Thanks!

    Thank you Snader! :beer:

    Thanks Jeremy! Thanks for your kindness.

    Hehe, it's not possible to leave you know that :D You were so kind when I joined here so always nice to see your comments.

    Heyya Onnod! It's possible to print in color 3D but that material is weak. Hope it will change and I can make laser scanned legendary slingshots in the future. :D Good to see you around!

    Thanks a lot mate! I liked that form even in the fork covered with bark. It was promising.

    Hi Scooby, That wood is kind of Alder as I know. EDC is for EveryDay Carry. Thanks for your comments. I will be here on the forum, but have to finish some exams for my promotion at job. So my appearance will be hectic, but hoping the best.

    Wow Flicks, :), Thank you so much, your words are inspiring! Good to see you as always :)

    Hi Be, Thanks and wish you the same Happy New Year! It's hard to staying away from the forum and working instead :D but had a hard year end. Still a bit confused, but have to manage it. Some large companies can really burn a designers mind :D. We have elections in the next few months and larger investments are affected by politicians. Ungarn is a way too small country to avoid distortion in bigger design projects.

    Thanks for stopping by my friend!

    Thanks Paul and welcome! As I know it's a kind of Alder.

    So thank you guys for your kindness, it really feels good to see you all!

    EDC = Every Day Carry, makes sense. Thanks for clarifying :)

    Wow that natural one came out with such a nice finish!

    Easy to see why you copied that shape as well. The printed version is really cool too, I imagine it would be easy to make different colors as well.

    Forgive me for being new to the forum, but what is that "BLO bath" you are using? I'm primarily a metalworker, so I have much to learn about wood.

    EDIT: Never mind, BLO= boiled linseed oil. I found an acronym thread on this board.
