Update 7/29/2018: Added .38 Special as an alternative version.
Hello and thank you for visiting my design!
IMPORTANT: PLEASE SCALE +2-4%! (102% - 104%)
I designed this (for the first time) to match my wall thickness and specific print settings. I realized that even though if I print with a particular brand of PLA the fit is nothing but perfect. However, other materials or other brands of PLA that shrink more will be 'too snug'. I'd recommend that on your first try, print it at + 3% scale and see how that fits! (Both the box and the lid!).
Other materials might need more or less scaling, so please share your experience!
A while ago I designed and uploaded a .22 LR ammo box that was very well received.
Almost instantly I got requests to make a 9mm version of it. And I said I would. I thought it'd be just adjusting the old one but that wasn't the case, so designed this one from scratch, keeping a similar modeling style.
This will fit 50x standard 9mm ammo rounds. I also designed a 'clicky' system of notches so it should be easy to dispense 10rds at a time.
Please share your 'makes and likes', and of course, comments, criticism and suggestions are always welcome!
I HIGHLY recommend that you print this with +3 % scale (103%) !
I designed this to match my wall thickness of 0.45mm and the PLA that I use has almost no shrinking. A friend of mine printed it 'as is' and found out that it's a bit too tight. I printed this box myself with different brands of PLA with different results. If you want to play it safe, like I said, scale up! :)
You might encounter some stringing inside the sockets, just shoving a round in and out a few times should do the trick. If the rounds are too snug, please print with 102-104% scaling!
I designed this entirely using Fusion360 :)
