    The Open Source COVID Medical Supplies (OSCMS) put together a bunch of information related to the creation of things related to the disease.

    Re: 3D printing?

    As of 5:00 4/6 we’ve made 137 holders, and Trimech made some for me as well. Delivering 30 today.

    Each one uses 1.99 cu in of material and the cartridge holds 42 cu in, so we can make 21.1 cartridges per spool. The “.1” may seem spurious but the machine meters it so precisely that it started the build with 1.42 cu in left, paused, and unloaded the old material. Popped in another one and we’ll keep trucking. Stopped building Friday to take a break and replace one of the feed tips: otherwise the machine has been running continuously since Weds March 26th.

    Re: 3D printing?

    Garandman and others, how do you go about creating designs for what you print? I would love a horizontal tray or shelf where I could stand a bunch of magazines up on end, and then put that in my gun safe (whenever I actually get one). I found this online, but I would want a flat tray (say 30" x 30") to store them, instead of a something that mounts vertically...

    Thingiverse has a bunch of stuff that you can download. https://www.thingiverse.com/search?q...&sort=relevant

    Otherwise you are going to need some sort of 3D modeler to design stuff.
    Blender, Fusion 360, and FreeCad are a few.
    There's generally a pretty steep learning curve to these.

    Yeah, I found this which I could use for my PTR91 mags. Basically I would just print ~10 of these and glue them to a tray. But how hard is it to take that model and (in CAD) replicate it 10x times and just print one big tray with 10 holders?

    Re: 3D printing?

    I have designed exactly one print myself; a spacer for the arbor in my antique tablesaw that was basically a precision washer.

    Learning the CAD/3d modeling software is one of those things on my "one day" list that I just keep not getting to. I have a couple yootoobe primers half watched.

    The thing that will probably push me over the edge is when sketchup finally dies. I use that for all my cabinet and shop fixture designs. I refuse to use the hosted app version and the last build of the local mac version is getting buggier and buggier by the day.

    I'm ashamed to admit my 3d printer is offline and hasn't printed anything in over a year now.


    Edit: What I should have simply said was: good luck my friend!

    Yeah with the cost of outside printing I haven't printed anything in a long time. Easier to design and then buy it from xometry.

    Think you mostly got your answer: you need to to take one of your mags and have the necessary features modeled which will interface with whatever rack idea you have. If you want to see someone step thru the process here's an example.

    To keep it simple & flexible I'd recommend a modular design like this one. Then you can link blocks to your sizing and create blocks for other types of mags. Also keeps the print sizes manageable for DIY.

    Re: 3D printing?

    I use SolidWorks and output an STL file.

    Just designed a lense cover for a research project.

    Same but I use solid edge.

    I think you can still get a free/cheap student /hobbyist access to cloud based onshape.com

    Yep - also my understanding that OnShape supports free use for makers / non-commercial. The requirement is that your models will be in the public domain; you grant open license on whatever you create. I've read some good things about the software but haven't tried it myself.

    The founder of OnShape was John Hirschtick.

    Along with being one of the MIT students that burned the Vegas casinos, he worked at ComputerVision before founding SolidWorks.
