    Question 8 months ago on Step 4

    Hello, im trying to build my own launcher following your instructions:
    you think using PVC pipes instead of ABS would be a problem? Thank you


    Question 3 years ago on Introduction

    What is the infill settings you used for the parts?


    Answer 3 years ago

    I utilized 20% infill for the parts. The only part I considered having a higher density infill was the TagInn shell holder. It takes a lot of recoil energy when the shell is fired.
