the shocker is nice, but I see one problem with it. The feedneck is a little to small, it looks out of proportion.

Haha, lets see some of your past work...

I think the timmy was number 6 on my list of to do's:

1. Make super detailed shocker
2. Make raw Busy body with perfect spec
3. Make Custom Milled Busy Body
4. Make Bushy complete
5. Make super detailed custom marker thats a cross between blazer, cocker
6. Make Timmy or Ego

or something like that...

And...

BMX, again, your models look good! What feature did you use in solidworks to make those wavy lines on your milled bushy model?

Out of curiosity, where do you live?

If i was doing cuts like that in SW i would use a sweeping cut on a profile

Shocker looks real good if u like i have the SP file that they send to people doing privite label shocker it is the blank they machine from but has all the internal geom included i can send it u.

I havn't done much paintball stuff besides some trigger's, a bolt, and an unfinished 98 custom. I have made a pool table, new design to a razor phone, and a rolex with an ipod on the inside. Most of the good stuff is saved on my school computer and too big to transfer. Im gonna wait til after christmas though because im gonna get some upgrades so i wanna put those on my gun.

This has got to be the nicest bush i have ever seen. And I skipped the PDS on this one since I wanted the bushy to look super clean. it turned out nice!

Haha i see you used the same trigger frame, barrel, and trigger. Those look really good though. I want to talk to you on aim so maybe you can help me with my timmy since im still a little new to solidworks. I got it but i have only taken a class for normal cad so i dont know the best way to do everything.

I never planned on making a whole bushy. The OG plan was only to make a raw unmilled block body for others to download and custom mill themselves and then they could have it CNCed. I made my own custom body to show that yes you can mill the raw one down to something cool. I just swaped on some of the shocker parts to show what it may look like built up, I dident care enough to make all new parts for it since I dident feel like doing so.

I never took any classes for solid works, just do the built in tutorials and you will be basicly set. I still have to get a new AIM SN but for now just PM or email me at busades@hotmail.com My next project is looking like a timmy or ego so you may be in luck since we can swap files.

Basicaly.

After looking at the 06 one now more closely I realize it wouldent be that hard to make at all, like I dont even need to make any lofts. I will most likely may the 06 timmy body soon since it doesent seem that hard anymore...
