Has anyone else had some good luck modeling grips for their bow? I tried a few and slowly getting it to fit better. These are for my Olympic Recurve
No, but have wondered where/how to get plans for them. Did/do you design your own for sale?
My main material is PLA+ but I do PETG, ABS, TPU. Depends on the project.It's something I want to try but haven't really messed with yet. I could just buy a Gillingham grip (I shoot Bowtech) but they're damned expensive to be trying out several different ones. What material are you printing with?
Ya I have an SF Forged+ and some of the custom grips I have found all advertise "similar to Hoyt grip" so I want to see what that's all about without spending the $50+Let me dig around in the garage and see if I have one. If I do it would be for an older Hoyt like in the Carbon Spyder era.
Ya I think I found a few on there that I'm going to try out. Like you said, printing a grip may cost me 25 cents rather than spending $50. I'm decent at using inventor to modify some of the shapes so we'll see what I come up withHad a friend print me a couple hoyt similars based on designs I found on Thingiverse.
The first one was flat the second curved.
Both fitted nicely on my old hoyt Aerotec riser. Actually kept the curved one and used it in both my SF and W&W for some time. Pictures attached.
As you can see the PLA got a bit overheated, but it had a nice streak texture and really helped a lot with a positive grip.
I would definitely experiment with a 3D printer for custom grips. You can print a few dozen for the price of a commercially customised one.

When you perfect the designs, lemme know if you are willing to ship some to Greece (for a couple of 6packs of coors or any other brand).Ya I think I found a few on there that I'm going to try out.

I used 3 walls and ~20% gyroid. I adjust the infill more or less based on the geometry.I'd like to try this but have to use premade models until I refine my skills. The curves of my bow and hand are beyond my sketchup skills. What percent infill do you use for the grips?
Is blender easy to use to modify the shape? I have never used itI use the model on thingiverse (gv1.8) as the base the remold it in blender to 40°.
0.12 layer height
3 parameter < need to up to 4
15% gyroid infill
eSun ePLA matte black <super nice hand feels and looks like injection molded in the sun.
