Hi Folks,

Finally am finished with a project. Let me show you The Wrench slingshot.
The general concept is coming from my years of working in industrial area, maintenance.

It's from my 3D printed frames so SLS printing was used. PA 6 material.

My main goal beside the design overall was to create that tiny pattern detail at the grip. Without mention too much techy details it basically started with a CAD (solid) file than a pseudo print output as an STL which was reimported and recalculated as a reference file to rebuild a matching polygonal surface onto the nurbs curvature. Then a painted mask was a guide to sink back the form into the surface. Finally a density driven polygonal structure to get back a printable file size. Roughly two months of learning and experimenting.

Hope you like it :)

What he said!

Dang, Tremo, that's sweet! I love the design. All the little details that make it look like a bonafide hand tool really gives it an awesome look. That texture on the handle reminds me of the knurled texture feel of my favorite tools. What must we do to convince you to put something like this into production so we may buy one for ourselves? Great work and great attention to detail. Nicely done.

Well thats awesome. Some make slingshots by hands while others spend the file for getting the experience to produce slingshots. THATS how I would invest the time if I had the knowledge and abilities you have. Looks great and you can produce more units in less timr than the first one.

Yeah lol... exactly my feels xD You said "Without mention too much techy details.." but that was a lie and I didnt understand half of what came after that sentence lol. :D

I cant imagine you wont put this into production, either yourself or with the help some other company(ss related or not), so I ll just ask for a price you will be offering these to us unskilled techno-plebs xD

Edit: btw I like your tool rings very much, you should make a spoke wrench(for bicycles) ring too, I would probably buy that.

Tremo, this is an amazing piece. You obviously spent a lot of time designing the shape before you spent a lot of time figuring out how to produce it. Well done. When does my apprenticeship start?

I agree with mvd. Unfortunately there already is a design from a member of the other slingshot forum named Wrench..

But back to the topic : Tremo, your work is always so professional and impressive!
If your designs go into production, they could be a serious option to the rambone. ;)

HHHa I just cant stop laughing! Clean message! :D Good to see you're on top in humor!

Big WOW, Tremo! I need one of these!!!
Thank You Raul! Your comment is a great inspiration to push it forward. I'm on it!

Thanks a lot bigdh!

I really appreciate You like it and reminds You real life tools! Really good to hear that I managed to achieve this goal!

About production: it's a hard theme. I'm spinning a lot in daily work and need a month or two to push it forward, but will fasten my seat belts and focus on the project!

Hi Jonas! Thanks for the kind comment on my work. You're totally right. On one side develop a functional and ergonomic form in an engineering environment is a real challenge, but later it can be just fruitful. Hope I can deal with the challenge.

It's a masterpiece! How does it shoot? It's better than Milbro! You going to mass produce? I thinh you should! Well done!
Wow thanks a lot! Peter Hogan and his crew are masters of casting at Milbro. What You wrote sounds good for the first read, but comparing my work to a whole company's whole product palette is not totally correct.

Don't think Your enthusiasm is not uplifting for me! I'm very glad You like it. It's my respect for a trusted company.

Wow great work!
Thank You very much Gniaffron!

Hi John! Thanks for stopping by and spent some time to check my other works on the net :) really appreciate your spoke wrench idea. Hope I can follow that project!

You know I can't make a promise on mass production, but be sure am working on the design I can handle. Have a nice day my Friend!

HA! Darren, I'm speechless on your comment. Can't tell You how good it feels. But be serious please, you're master a craftsman. :) :)

That's really cool! Great work designing that!
Hi Onnod! Really glad You like it mate! Cheers!

----------------------------------------------------

Thank You So much everyone! That inspiration and support You just gave me is really a power engine to work even harder!

Bests,
Tremo

I just wanted to answer Your important comments separately! Just to be correct.

Really nice.....but there is another slingshot design out there with the name "Wrench", made by Hrawk
Hi mvd,

Thank You for pointing this out! I've just checked the name coincidence and You're totally right!

Googled it, and one of the result pointed to the forum registry
Slingshot Registry Entries Tagged With Wrench

<cite class="_Zd">www.theslingshotforum.com/slingshots/tags/wrench/</cite>
... Updated · Post Date · Wrench. A Wrench by Hrawk made from Mineral... Posted By: mvd. Date: December 2, 2013 at 12:58 PM. |. Comments: 0. |. Views: 384.

Hrawks design in the forum registry. Registered by mvd.

Here's an image too.


It's my fault to miss the name check process, and really excuse me. Mea culpa. Next time I won't forget it. However it seems to me it's not a design issue. Hrawks slingshot looks different. Since I had no previous info about Hrawks design and personally I just can say Hrawk is really a name in slingshooting I can only book it as a fatal coincidence.

In conclusion: anyone who read this. Both forums members are already made thousands of slingshots! Don't forget to namecheck!

Thank You mvd to pointing this out! It's an important thing to respect each others works!

Bests,
Tremo

Hi Courier,

Beside the name question just want to say a big Thanks to You! Your words are inspiring!

Have a nice day mate,
Tremo
