My first 7075 design


#1

Tried to throw together a 7075 design last night and this is what I came up with. What do you guys think?

7075 aluminium
Base weight- 65 g
Width- 45.67 mm
Diameter- 54.14 mm
Thinnest wall thickness- 0.72 mm


#2

Looks cool, can you show us the weight distribution?


#3

Oops, thought I attached it :stuck_out_tongue: here ya go.


#4

Looks great, could think of any way to improve it, although the weight distribution could be tweaked.
Would be a solid player.


#5

I like the design, however, I can’t help but notice that just below the rims, the metal is cut really thin.


#6

0.72 mm is the lowest wall thickness but it’s 7075 so we good.


#7

I don’t think you should ever use the lowest possible wall thickness.


#8

Nevermind, I was incorrect :stuck_out_tongue:


#9

why not? you have to take advantage on the alloy right?
Risk should be involved for performance gain.


#10

TopDeck is 1mm, Citizen is .5mm


#11

Well, that makes sense then. I must have misread it.

Autodesk inventor. It’s free for students for something like 3 years and does everything I need :stuck_out_tongue:
