Default My next 3D print project

Since my 3D printed turret project I've been on the lookout for something else I could 3D print and came up with the idea that I might like to 3D print myself a custom butt hook. I've got some ideas for a slightly different take on the normal butt hooks you see out there and hopefully significantly cheaper too. Not sure whether ABS will be strong enough but it'll be fun having a play, and you can all laugh at me when mine snaps

Anyhoo.. I've come to the conclusion that the OpenSCAD software I was using isn't really up to the job, so I've spent the weekend learning SolidWorks which seems very good.

Anyhoo... first step is I want to make a slightly offset angled WEGU butt pad spacer - this could eventually form a base for a butt hook anyway and it gives me a chance to learn SolidWorks in the process.

So here's what I've got so far (renderings attached). I haven't drilled the fixing holes yet - this is made to fit a Warren stock perfectly with a 63 degree angle.

( Yeah, I know you can buy angled WEGU spacers, but mine will look sexier )
