I wanted a new grip for my scorpion. So I rolled my own.

Cleaned up, painted, and installed.

Please give a detailed explanation of the process. What else can you duplicate, and can you make size changes to the original?~ssİ

What material did you use?

And what printer? I have been looking for a starter but there are so many choices I don't know how to choose.

Not bad. I kept the LOP identical to the original, which is short for folks with large hands.
Angle is way better. And it doesn't look like a donkey *ick.
Won't be able to shoot it until after SHOT.

It's a rigid photopolymer. It's not super tough, but it produces a very usable piece. I've got some stronger stuff on order.

Printer is an Objet 30 Pro from work. Definitely not a starter machine.

I CAD it. I send to printer. I clean support material off. Then I paint it.

Do you mean can I make a larger or smaller of the original scorpion grip?

I figured it probably was industrial grade. The starters have a lot of housing and decorative trim.

Yeah, this isn't even one of their high end machines. This machine is like $65k, the ones that print rubbers, multi materials, and the like are $250k+.
