So I have a 3D printer and have been thinking about ideas of what i can do with it and as i was thinking about winter putting practice was curious what my carpet speed was. So about an hour of CAD later and 6'ish hours of printing and I got myself a mini stimpmeter. I did the math to scale down the ramp so that it equates to a relatively accurate measurement. I originally designed a 9" ramp which made ever 3" = 1 "Stimp" point. (marking on print is wrong). 20190831_173207.thumb.jpg.c969fac3241f9cd8172525d9beef774f.jpg

This made me ecstatic so I kept messing with it and did a bunch of different locations around the carpet to get an average and the carpet in that room is around a 9. ezgif.com-video-to-gif.gif.5d6d688cc63f33bd88609142b58a1a91.gif

Since 9" was a touch large I simplified it to 6" so every 2"=1 Stimp and have posted the file on thingiverse if anyone wants to print it and have fun go for it. This was such a fun project and i want to do more things like this. Maybe a Loft/lie measurements or alignment tools, if you have idea I love tinkering with this stuff. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3839217

I'm welcome to share any math if anyone cares and if you really want one but don't have a printer shoot me a message.

pretty cool.   My idea would be to print a ball marking tool to draw lines or some other design on the ball.

Let's go all in. Let's get some 3d printed balls and clubs to add to the Most Wanted data set!

 

 

@pozzit that's a super cool project. Interesting to see your carpet isn't as slow as I've expected carpets would be. It's almost there for a normal Muni.

Very cool!  I'll have to pull it down from thingverse.  I picked up a 3D Printer for my daughter last year to encourage her to use science and imagination to create fun or functional items.  So far, she's printed the default chinese cat and a few mickey mouse decorations she's put up in her room, LOL.

3D scanned the head or CAD designed from scratch ?  Either way very impressive!

It was from scratch so it's no where near perfect but it's just fun designing these. I'm planning do make my 2ball putter and debating about doing one of the Mizuno JPX line if I can get ahold of one for a week or so.

Yea I was thinking of making a MGS ball marker or even some putting aids similar to Puttout or some gates.

Pretty cool, I like it!

pretty sure smash factor would be a solid 0.05 there is a reason there are no plastic golf clubs.

Could drill holes in the bottom and fill with sand to add some weight.

Yea I need to put some weight in it or put some carpet spikes to grip a little better.

Yeah, I think my carpet would be about a 5.  I wonder what a good slick concrete slab rolls?!

Put a hole in the base and put a tee through it to hold it in place. One on each side. 
Also, the width of the cup is not the ideal size for a gate because the center of the ball on the inside edge of the cup could fall in at the right speed. A gate that is about an inch wider is actually closer to makeable putts.
On the one I made, I added two hanging pins to designate the actual size of a cup. A pass through the gate without hitting the pins was center cup. If it hit the pins, but missed the side = edge but made if didn't go too far past the hole. And, anything that grazes the gate edges was totally missed.
Yea I do need to make a few updates. I made these the same size as normal Gates you can purchase online. Usually intended for a smaller aiming area to produce better alignment and usually in line with the hole.
I need to post a few more of my designs on here for people. I've made a display for loose iron heads, ferrules, clips for FLO laser, R-Motion clips, and alignment phone holder for recording your swing, to name a few.

Here are a few of the other things I have designed and printed. I can share these stl's with anyone who may want to print it themselves. If you would like something printed and sent shoot me a DM. 20200420_070552.thumb.jpg.4721c66681edb78a3aefa35cdb5943c9.jpg20200330_220712.thumb.jpg.14be8a56953ff1d63dc32f52bdc1ed55.jpg

Ill keep trying to add my prints and ideas here for everyone and if you have any specific ideas let me know.

That's really cool, have you tested it next to an actual stimpmeter by chance?

Here are some other ideas for 3D printing:

-Putting arc constraint

-Full swing impact gate (to control low point and swing path)
