Printed a pocket holster yesterday.

Printed this pocket holster yesterday out of a flexible material. It works great in fact it doesn’t want to come out of the pocket but my S&W 351C draws just fine when inserted in the pocket.

OMG!!! It's a "ghost holster"! Completely unregulated! Anyone with a 3D printer can make one and use it to carry a GUN!

Seriously, looks nice. Did you design it or get the plans on the internet?

I did the cad work myself, it’s what I do for a living. We printed it on one of our printers we use for prototypes at work.

Since I am entirely incapable of doing anything tech related, I can't criticize, but I might have come up a little higher to completely enclose the trigger guard. Love the minimalist style, though.

I like! Can you make one for an LCs9 Ruger?

(I think there's a business here!)

How long did the actual printing process take once the design was finalized and the data fed into the machine.?

It took just over 2hrs. The printer settings were set for a fine finish. The time includes the clean out time for the support material.Yeah it’s not a cheap process for a production item
