  1. You do great work Skeet! They got nothing on you.
  2. Man I just love your stuff Craig. Great work brother!
  3. Try the wire baits forum.
  4. I print bodies all of the time. I make mine in 2 halves like a regular production lure. No infill needed. You only need to design half of the lure and then just mirror it in your cad program. ABS filament works best for me. However, you still have to seal your lure before testing. You can do this various way. A good coat of cover white works fine for testing.
  5. Yes I have a 3D scanner.
  6. Can you post a picture of the lure? Also, how big is it? Is it a hollow body or solid?
  7. We cut strips of masking tape the width of each joint and put them on both sides of the cloth. Then apply your choice of clear coat. We spray auto clear or moisture cure urethane. No need to spin.
  8. We use one of these: https://www.ebay.com/i/112321104185?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-117182-37290-0&mkcid=2&itemid=112321104185&targetid=544246891374&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=1020268&poi=&campaignid=1497773989&mkgroupid=59509629962&rlsatarget=aud-622524042918:pla-544246891374&abcId=1139476&merchantid=114605900&gclid=CjwKCAjwkenqBRBgEiwA-bZVtr9pyGvJ73E7zSvUShbch7--2Xrm-wS69fMZafef2DN0jyRdKzC3pBoCB_IQAvD_BwE
  9. As some of you know, I design lures and paint schemes for Bass Pro Shops. Bass Pro has many patents on some of the lures I designed. China has copied many of them and released them for sale. Its just not worth the money to fight them overseas. Here is a perfect example: https://patents.google.com/patent/US8789308?oq=tim+hughes+segmented+fishing+lure There are many copies of this lure for sale on ebay and other places.
  10. If you're talking China, there is no protection
  11. If you put a clear over the foil it hides the edges and a lot of the wrinkles. It just gives you a smooth surface to paint on.
  12. Everything that Skeeter said is 110% correct. But if you really must, I would have a topwater, shallow bill, medium bill and a deep bill. Pretty much covers the spectrum. That should be enough to make you want to quit your job. Just kiddin'
  13. scuff it. Then a good cleaning with isopropyl alcohol . Paint it.
