We've got a Makerbot at work. Nifty little toy, but it just isn't precise enough to make most paintball parts. Pump handles, hopper shells, but not much else. They're not smooth models at all, either, even fully calibrated you'll be able to see each layer.
This is their next model up.
You can also add extra shells to allow you to sand it down or use acetone to dull the ribs.
Alright, I kinda fell out of the sport around 2008 for a varitety of reasons. So what the hell has happened to special ops since then? I mean when I left, they were doing great. They had just made all kind of new contracts with tippmann to sell there products, and now I check back and the store is a ghost of its former self, and the fourm is completly dead. Is it just that the sport as a whole was hit hard by the economy, or is there something that I misssed?
