I just got a 3d printer for the first time in my life. Can any frens here share some useful STLs?

I just got a 3d printer for the first time in my life. Can any frens here share some useful STLs? Right now I'm trying to model those 25rds mags for the Mossberg 702 plinkster but I still suck at FreeCad.

      That's quite a complex geometry for a noob, maybe start simpler.

      You should print an FGC-9 fully in plastic, assemble it and understand it, then sub in metal parts where required.

      I recommend keeping blender as well, it does some things better than freecad.

        Oh and here's a magazine plate for you.

        There's a different mossberg mag on there too, maybe something you can adapt into what you want.

          It's such a pain to sign up for, I feel violated just looking at their sign-up form.

          I'd really like a CAD program I don't need to open accounts and sign over my biometrics for.

      I got one of those alread kek. I'm looking into doing easier stuff first such as non critical parts like mags so I can get some experience.

    How are you modeling a stendo mag without exact dimensional reference? You need to buy one to measure it or find a blueprint

      I've got one of the original mags but I can't find the extended part for the life of me and I'm not in the US and it's very hard to find mags here. Been trying to model the mag from pictures but no success so far.

      Mags are critcally important components

      Not for the gun itself, meaning, you can operate most guns without a magazine.

      I have a problem with Fusion 360 as it's cloud based. I like my privacy. I'm using FreeCad for now but I'm also considering Blender

    Do take the time to calibrate your e-steps and extrusion for each filament. (PLA+ and filaments in general vary from manufacturer to manufacturer.)

    Good printer settings for that filament roll gives a stronger print and more dimensionally accurate so you won't need to sand or drill as much.

      Will do. I'm printing some stuff for my wife to mess around with the setting a bit.

      Has anyone had luck making mag springs? I've technically succeeded with mags that are functional but unreliable.

      Use piano wire they are usually spring steel or the wire you can pull out from the inside band of an old car tire. I have experience with springs.

      This is all I see when I look at such a short barrelled rifle. There's got to be a better way to utilize all that dead space.

      AFAIK the FGC9 is a bit oversized for safety and the bolt has to be big so it has enough mass but yeah bullpups are awesome.

      So you just like bullpups?
      I do too anon.

        I believe the best weapon a human can wield will be a bullpup. We just haven't made one that is as ergonomic as a conventional layout rifle yet.

      Short barrels are not inaccurate. Longer barrels can flex if they're not stiff enough.

      Also FGC-9 is a no-parts build meant to be produced in countries where all gun parts are illegal. As such the design needs to function despite poor craftsmanship. Having the chamber forward of the hands and face is a safety feature.

    Best way to begin is make items that will be equally useful if imperfect. I now have a gloriously specific oil and coolant funnel collection, shop vac nozzle collection I legit needed (I collect shop vacs used for my machine and auto shops), bit storage, battery storage and other stuff like

    https://cults3d.com/en/3d-model/various/ba-31-battery-case-for-ts-352-meter

    for my beautiful multimeter. (Analog has it's uses.)

    Make temperature towers etc too. Prusa slicer is based.

      Makes sense. I need to get experience with more simple stuff. The links are useful though I'm downloading everything I can get my hands on.

    Start here: https://thegatalog.com/

    Before you print any guns, start with calibration to get a feel for it and to spot any issues

    You'll thank me later.
