Broadheads

Where to source materials etc. Also the place to show off your new bow or quiver etc.... Making things belongs in Traditional Crafts.

Broadheads

#1 Post by papa scarface » Tue Feb 05, 2019 10:31 am

I’m thinking of having a go at designing some Broadheads and having a few built up to weigh up the viability of running a small side business.
At this stage it’s all just a bit of research, planning and thinking it all over with designs and suppliers.

One of the big stumbling blocks I’m encountering is a suitable program to Draw up a design and someone who can construct a few prototypes.

Has anyone gone down this route before? And would anyone care to share a program or a company who can handle making a few prototypes or bulk quantities.

Thank you

I've been looking at SketchUp recently to try and design some trinkets for 3D printing. It looks like a good program with intuitive functions and it's fairly powerful. There is a free and a pro version.
