My son scored a paintball marker for a steal but it didn't come with a hopper. So I made one in Tinkercad.. I'm loving this Tinkercad more and more. Sure it doesn't have the 10000 features the others have but I can bang out designs/products in 1/10 the time!
Anyways ... in this version I used
- Larger capacity (hold more paintballs)
- Tabs to allow me to pin down during print (reduce curl/lift)
- Supports (my first attempt)
I added supports to this because when I turned on support feature in RepG it took FOREVER and seemed to really waste a ton plastic. I'm hoping my little pillars do the trick!

UPDATE - after some painting, gluing (epoxy) and sanding, shes done! Works very well and I need to figure out a top for it. As for the supports it looks like the very tips (which I made super small so I could break them off) were too small. If you print this make sure you fixed the tips and mirror print for other half! Enjoy.
