    printed rails, Interest thread

    Material is ABS PLASTIC. 8"x8"x8" (corner to corner is more, Pythagorean and all. )
    this is NOT PLA, NYLON, CARBONFIBER, etc.

    ABS is what I print for now.
    Right now I print a successful 1 micron layer thickness.
    (developing lower close to .5 microns, hopeful for .25 microns(beta))

    anyone interested in these?
    non forgrip or with forgrip hugging to the frame trigger guard.

    -can do multiple colors.
    -does NOT come with Z-lock pin channel
    -I have slim designs
    -am open to ideas of new designs
    -can design am/mm sear or RT sear channels

    ***these are the lightest working rails I know of,
    no one has printed a successful carbon fiber rail, that I know of;
    since there is only one carbon fiber printer that has just been recently invented.(may be mine soon here's hoping)

    let me know what you think.
    oh and I can always just print you a square block rail if you want.


    ___________________________________
    you can NOT at this time run air through this printed material I offer. to do so is wrong and can result in injury.
    _____________________________________________
    questions please ask.

    *****prices will not be discussed here.******

    and if you are appalled by this idea, totally hate it please let me know.

    thank you,
    KNMPS

    **I WILL NOT PRINT IN WHITE, it has a different composition then colored ABS, and is therefore more weak. I will not produce anything in white, will not release any product in white.

    Are you 3D printing now? Can you make me some barrel tips for a 7/8" barrel?

    pm me with details
    all things need to be tested, before release of course.

    I have yet to learn how to create threading,
    I have some people that may be able to speed that process along though.

    No threading necessary. And if I may say it, I would be all over these rails you're offering if I had more guns that took rails

    Pretty cool work.
    Remember once you state a price it gets sent to dealer section so make sure your set and good with it before you disclose a price.

    When I say the first post, the super-small Sydarm rail was the first one that came to my mind. And then I scroll it down and what do I see? LOL I'm in for one like that, depending on price.

    Interested, looks good.

    does the ABS have any give that could cause cycling issues?

    If the printed abs works like all the abs I use in bodywork and fab. It should work great. It will ding. But I try to take care of my markers. Im curious as to what price point these will be. And my head is spinning on overall design options. BUT I'm too cheap to purchase one most likely.

    there is give as in any plastic.
    tighten the rear valve thumb screw properly and it will operate fine.

    if you do a forgerip there is some flex that is why im not offering RT length. that flex does not hinder cycling of the marker.
    My sydarm weighs less than yours!!!

    You think the threaded area and sear pin support will last? If not you could always make room for some inserts.

    Most mag rails have that sear centering zig-zag. For printing, you could just throw in a nub on each side.

    On your sydarm rail, you could put a short picatinny extension, for your laser, don-cha-no.

    I think it will hold up.
    ill put it through its paces some more.

    that's why I made this thread to get ideas and input.
    when you explain stuff like that it helps a lot to give me ideas on how to test this stuff.

    yes, have to do some more testing on it.
    but the design will put the forgrip right next to the trigger guard.

    Nice and interesting idea.

    I could be for one depending on price.

    I'd really like to see it on one of my markers and see how it works !

    Will you do an AM/MM length, am/mm sear with slot for foregrip ? Oups I didn't saw Magman asked almost the same and you already answered for the slot !

    For the centering zig zag, is there an interest to have a zig zag ? Why not having straight line letting the same room for the sear as the zig zag do ? This could simplify the printing .

    when I design the am/mm type sear rails they will have the zig zag. its rt im not sure yet still need to test. most likely they will all have the zig zag

    im working with someone here in CA to help me with a printed version of rail. and more...., as long as the More holds up to paintball abuse.

    what are you guys looking for in a printed rail?
    I know the sidearm rail I made is minimal.
    ideas. lets go. I don't want to disappoint.. if these come to market.

    1ST off these will NOT have zlock pin channels.
    they will NOT stop your valve from unscrewing if you have not tightened them properly, or if an occurrence unwinds your back half of the valve, it will unwind with no restrictions from my rails.

    printing a "square" style rail for testing with foregrip.
    its strong enough for the foregrip, its only long enough to accommodate a foregrip at this time.
