Finished Project: Hand-Held Shooter

My latest project:

A hand held shooter:

The shooting mechanism is from the quick start robot instructions that comes with the mindstorms software. It shoots the little plastic balls that comes with the mindstorm set,it can also shoot marbles but since marbles are a lot heavier than plastic balls they don’t go very far.It can shoot the balls just under 8 feet and quite hard at close range.The ball reserve can hold six balls(seven if you really squish then) and can shoot them one at a time if you just press the trigger or one after the other if you hold down the trigger.The shooting mechanism works by pressing an axle in to the bottom ball and forcing it out.Here is the programme file for the hand-held shooter:

I might post a LDD file soon for this project.
