  1. Front view of 3d printed popper
  2. My 3d printed popper. 11 centimeters long and 20 grams in weight. The design is mine, made in Blender and Tinkercad, and printed in PLA. Twisted wire eyes for the line tie and hook hangers. This is still an experiment, so I still have to work on sealing, painting, and clearcoating. Also want to test and find out its breaking point, so this won't be intact for long. Will update when finished. Edit: The lure failed under a load of 16 kilograms (35.2 lbs). However, the failure occurred along a weak line, an incompletely fused layer, and so I assume that with a good print, the lure will be able to handle another 2 to 3 kilograms.
  3. Personally, I love baking soda and superglue. It's cheap, easy, and it sets like a rock.
  4. I've been wondering about the types of wire one can use. I've had very little luck finding actual marine grade SS wire, so I've been using dental SS wire instead. The stuff's tough and hard, and it seems to hold up, so I was wondering if anyone else has considered using it and what you think of it.
  5. Hello everyone. I'm Maurice, from South India. I'm mainly into making hardbaits for saltwater fishing, so I figured I could learn a thing or two here. Looking forward to the chance.
