Introduction: 3D Printed Cue Stick Chalking Tool

About: Robotics and Manufacturing Student at RIT. I try to accelerate learning through projects when I have the time. Haven't had much to share in the past few years, but hope to soon!

I designed and 3D printed a handheld motorized tool that chalks cue sticks.

Step 1: Supplies I Used

Step 2: Tools I Used

  • 3D printer
  • Soldering iron
  • Hot glue gun
  • Fusion 360

Step 3: Design

I started by designing the case in Fusion 360

  • I put holes in the case for the wires, button, battery, and motor.
  • I designed a button making a cylinder then filleting the top outside
  • cut a square hole in that to clip into the button
  • made a spinner with thin walls that bend and slightly wider top allowing a tight fit on the chalk
  • added hole for 9 volt clip

Step 4: Assembling

I put everything inside the case. Glued clip into case. Soldered wires from the battery to the button to the motor.

Step 5: Coming Soon

here is a rendering of a smaller,faster,and stronger version of the cue chalker
