Fully 3D Printed Nerf Dart Guns

A true passion project in the growing art of 3D printed Nerf Guns, the LF1 Nerf dart launcher should be the first stop for anyone who seeks the satisfaction of wielding a Nerf gun they’ve made themselves.

This fully 3D printed Nerf gun requires some extra attention both during and after printing, as well as some extra parts that need to be sourced elsewhere. The designer has set out fully detailed instructions and pictures to ensure the build goes as smoothly as possible, and the end result is nothing less than your own homemade 3D printed Nerf gun designed to shoot darts.

Fully 3D printed models are more complicated than simple Nerf gun mods and attachments, but after a few rounds with this foam dart gun and you’ll agree that it’s worth the extra time and effort.

With a spring-loaded barrel and a firing range of around 50ft, this 3D printed Nerf gun rivals its factory-made counterparts.

These darts can also be printed in any color, and even monogrammed so your opponents will know exactly who hit them in your Nerf battle, giving them a clear sign of who to watch out for.

They are designed to fit Pop-Its (or ‘bangers) to make a loud bang on impact. While not recommended to be used on other people within the dart zone, especially at close range, the satisfying bang at the end of the shot adds a more satisfying finish to any pull of your Nerf’s blaster trigger.

Biker Scout Nerf Attachment

3D Printed Nerf Gun Star Wars Attachment

Two things are true for every Star Wars fan: empty wrapping paper roles are lightsabers, and anything can be a blaster. Imagination is a powerful tool, but with this 3D printed Nerf blaster addition, you can focus more of your brain power on your aim, whatever you decide to shoot darts at.

Star Wars Nerf gun additions and models have been popular for very long time, and include plenty of choices for Nerf blasters, but the coolest we found is this add-on that turns any gun into a Biker Scout blaster from the famous chase scene on the Forest Moon of Endor.

This design is also scalable to turn any Nerf gun into a storm trooper’s weapon. It’s a perfect mod for adding a theme to your Nerf gun or even for a cool cosplay. You can even check it out in action with included YouTube video if you’re still not convinced.

There’s only one thing that’s more fun than winning Nerf games, and that’s having proof that you won. Nothing beats a clear sign that you were the victor, after all.

This designer agrees, and so came up with this mod, a 3D printed Go Pro mount for Nerf blasters, to save and relive your best long and close range shots (pun intended). Turning them into memories to treasure while giving you a fun video to share with the world on Facebook or YouTube.

The mount is secure, trustworthy, and popular enough that the results of the free files available here have even been found for sale on Etsy! However you use the videos taken with this device, you’ll find this mount to be an excellent accessory to help you shoot in more ways than one.

3D Printed Nerf Gun Holster

3D Printed Nerf Holsters

Not all accessories need to go on the gun itself, sometimes you need an addition to elevate the level of coolness or realism in your games.

This 3D printed Nerf gun holder is an attachment for your belt that’s durable enough to last through all the jumping, climbing, and other athletic activities that come with a good long Nerf gun shootout. It’s available on Thingiverse here.

The design was intended for a strong and light attachment that doesn’t weigh you down while you’re moving, and keeps your hands free when you need them. It’s also been updated many times with different settings to improve comfort, draw speed, and strength.

And let’s be honest, what’s cooler than holstering your Nerf gun after that perfectly aimed shot?

The Nerf Gun Grappling Hook

Grappling hook attachment for Nerf Gun

You read that right, this 3D printed Nerf gun attachment fits to the end of darts and other ammo with a string to form a working grappling hook.

With enough practice and some keen aiming, you’ll be able to fire at and pull objects around using your Nerf gun, and may even be able to take the weapon straight from your opponent’s hands, or just rescue those potato chips you forgot to bring to the sofa.

The original design has been known to be somewhat fragile, so if it breaks on you then you can still find an updated and stronger version instead, with upgraded 3D printed parts. Though it is also worth considering stronger or thicker materials, just make sure it’s light enough to still fire and you can grapple away while Nerfing!

The business end of your Nerf gun can make all the difference in range and accuracy when you shoot, and this 3D printed Stryfe Nerf gun attachment includes a rail to attach any simple Nerf Gun mods or additions.

Many Nerf blaster designs are made to fit a different 3D printed Stryfe attachment, the front tube adapter. But don’t worry, the file link comes with full instructions and even has two different forms with modified rails to suit your needs.

The design was tested multiple times by the creator, and makes 3D printed Stryfe modifications much simpler due to its malleable and multi-purpose design.

The 3D printed barrel doubles the length of the original, making the Nerf gun look cooler and fire further.
