Print yourself an aeg and add of the shelf gearbox and hopup unit
addition 3 to UPDATE 2.4. Changes were made to fit various gearboxes better. I hope it will stay this way. Use
"ar15_lower_thick_fix_marked" if you will use PETG, I recommend 1deg_angle upper. There is consistent warping issue that orientates handguard slightly upwards.
There Is many hours of work put in this project. I can tell you this much.
There is 3d printing with all its wonders. But have you ever thought about 3d printed airsoft gun? If yes, then this stuff is for you. albeit trying to print V2 gearbox which is notoriously brittle is not good idea, so grab it and motor somewhere where arsoft goodies are sold.
Set of goals!
1 no supports if possible.
2 Lighten the parts and avoid wasting material.
3 parts interchangeability with of the shelf stuff
4 No more than 12 print hours per part
5 220x220x220 build volume
As orange state bar up top implies this work is indeed in progres. I do not reccomend you to expect this without any shortcomings. And i will gladly accept your help in mitigating any if you found them. Also I need adequate form of feedback. Not every gearbox is identical, even magazines fit differently. If we end up with bunch of different lowers each for some specific gearbox brand that's only good. So
If you want to help me tweak it until it's logically done PM me.
Even if you are not planning in printing it but find it interesting I would also like to have discussion about it. Here is a link to a discord server . https://discord.gg/DPYEGvH
You also can download and request some files there.
After printing the parts clean up areas with overhangs. Depending on brand of your gearbox you may need to sand down protrusion on the back inner face of lower reciever.
(Will update later with more details)
List of planned features!

И вот мы внизу. здесь лежат файлы печатного корпуса ар15. Проект потихоньку допиливается, если что-то интересует пишите в контактик (ссыль в профиле) или в дискорд.
I reccomend using pla or SBS (watson) at this point
