Project FDL is the culmination of years of taking things apart and putting them back together. A perfect storm of hobby technology and geek creativity, it is a project for makers and tinkerers. It's for modders and designers. It's for 3D printing enthusiasts and robotics dabblers. It's for the kid in all of us that wished all their toys had turbo buttons.
MAKER MEETS MODDER
Project FDL Components
Every FDL design shares a core set of components. This provides a starting point for each new design and the ability to swap out parts between blasters.
Aside from their hardware and electronics, each FDL is completely 3D printed. Each is designed piece by piece to be printed on most consumer 3D printers.
Launch an entire clip standard or short length foam darts in a matter of seconds with a single pull of the trigger.
Controlled by a microcontroller, switches, and gear motors, FDL's are robotic. They can be fine tuned to perform to their user's ideals.
Capable of launching foam darts extremely hard out of the box. No cutting or modding necessary.
With wifi built directly into their microcontroller, some FDL's can be controlled and programmed from virtually anywhere.
All the files and schematics needed to print and assemble your own FDL are available free of charge.
