    Here Is my printed Hex Nut shooter. I wanted a really simple design that is easy to make. It shoots M10 nuts.

    At the moment it only has weak rubber. I will add green tubes later. The 3 plastic parts are printed on a 3D printer and the aluminium profiles are standard parts from the hardware store. Only one hole has to be drilled for the release axle. I

    Lol you pull the handle and the string releases. Rubber band accelerates the nut towards the fork.

    Funny project! Nice work, will you attach a handle?

    I think he meant 'Does it shoot good/bad?' :rolleyes: :)

    It shoots great. Long draw and good accuracy is possible. But I need to add a front handle and also epoxy the fork to the aluminium. The great thing is that you don´t have to machine anything. Just hit print.

    But the rubber is to weak and long at the moment. The shots were less powerful then my 9mm steel balls.
