3D-Printed Gatling Gun Fires 48 Rubber Bands in Mere Seconds – Gizmodo

by • July 14, 2016 • No Comments

Matthew Davis’Arcus is officially the many astounding thing we’ve at any time seen come out of a 3D printing device. Okay, bargain-priced prosthetics and replacement body parts are significant uses of the innovation, but this spinning rubber band blaster is what finally manufactures us want to put a 3D printing device on our desks.

Unlike many rubber band blasters which just fire a single shot at any timey time you squeeze the trigger or need a drive mechanism to manufacture them fully automatic, Davis’ Arcus uses the energy of the loaded elastics to spin the barrel and instantly fire shot after shot until it’s empty. Brilliant.


Over on Instrucables, he’s posted links to all of the 3D models so you can print your own as well as a break down of how the Arcus works and instructions on how to assemble the myriad of pieces your 3D printing device can be churning out. Just manufacture certain to stock up on rubber bands for the reason you will be rapidly losing them once you begin playing with this thing.
