After seeing Matthias Wandel genius wooden design and in order to test my very first 3D printer, I decided to put my 3D CAD old memories to the test by designing a 3D printed version of the CAP SHOOTER.
My design is based on the standard european bottle caps for Sparkling water or soda. (Quezac, Salvetat, Coke or anything that is 30x11mm)
More pictures of the finished product below !

- 4x M3x30mm screws
- A small 2.5mm shaft or a 2.5mm screw for the trigger.
- 2x M3x10 or 12mm to retain the rubber band.
- a regular 4.5mm outer diameter spring from a click ball pen.
- some soda bottle caps.
- some 8cm (folded in 2) rubber band
Please post a picture of yours if you print one :)
If you put supports, select only "support in contact with build plate" so the side holes are perfect.
