    WE are using mostly the following programs.
    Fusion360 , autocad 3d , zwcad 3d and combination.
    The list of parts will be updated shortly.

    I like the new butt hook items since I last checked in, excellent. What orientation do you use for printing to get maximum strength? Parts such as the "links" on edge? Thanks.

    Hello,
    I am also one of the team along with panaman.
    One of the tasks i have in mind is to put each stl part of the butt hook with correct orientation ready to print.
    As for the links i had them printed with the upper face of the link lying on the printers bed.
    I use them as extensions to a gehmann buttplate and so far i got no issues.

    Apart from correct orientation i use high infill >60% and 6 outer shells for extra strength.
    Suggested materials are PETG or even better nylon.

    By the way the butt hook is not yet fully printed and field tested.
    Its work in progress and already had few changes since the first post in thingiverse.
    As always any suggestion for improvement is more than welcome.

    Thanks! I use PET-G for my printer but since the butthook extension parts are small and relatively inexpensive, I decided to try a service that offers nylon. I'll let you know how it turns out.

    Please excuse my ignorance, but are these files that can be used to print our own parts? I don't have a printer, but could I take these to a printer and get them to print it?

    That is correct, the .stl files are used to generate parts. If you don't have a printer, there are services like 3D Hubs: Browse online 3D printing services to locate locals who print for a fee, and there are online print service like shapeways.com and sculpteo.com

    I have ordered one from a local 3D Hub guy. I will be interested to see how it turns out. Very reasonable price too. So I will let you know how I go.

    Very pleased with my build of the "Butt Hook Extension 2". It's an excellent design, thanks for sharing!
