Hi,

Does it shoot out webs or do you shoot webs with it?

Dave :^)

I'm guessing the first one. Unless it's a way to shoot the worldwide web. Or a bar drink.

All it does is compress fluid with a spin due to the turbine through a stensil, the spinneret. Pushing out a clasp into a sort of meed, the elements I'm working with are rubber cemment, acetone, & plaster searching for the right compou to capsule up into a catridge that's what you see at the front. Looking for a cap that'll fix my axel, but in essence; The Web Shooter everyone!

What do you use this device for? You use the term "industrial," so I'm curious about its application. I also happen to be a billionaire venture capitalist, so don't leave out any important details. ;-)

By industrial grade I mean a functional webshooter, not a prop.

That still doesn't answer the question. What do you hope to use it for?

Well I hope to use it like the popular Marvel character Spiderman. I even have designs for synthetic setae. People are looking, but I practice Alchemy.

Obviously, to catch flies.

On a larger scale (industrial).. perhaps to catch escaping criminals like Spiderman.

Maybe useful in riot control to contain mobs.. sans handcuffs.

Fun idea actually.

Dave

Well, Actually

It's a backyard project that deals with tubes in a strainer

I'm looking to remodel them with metal

I'm not looking for so much a sponsor as so much I'm looking for a way to build them.

Something like autodesk.

I'm aware of anything beyond slopes as vectors, so there's for my infinitesimals.

I'm sorry if you have trouble understanding me, I've been coding the matrix

Regards!

Web Shooter Model 2-Extended Terminal

gages a wheel & axle with a 2-inch peg & 1 in peg for sturdying the turbine axle while mounting catridges.

*UPDATE* As for the turbine axle & cartridge's bearing, fluff is stuff I guess you could say is core

Hi again,

So it's a bit like a Cotton Candy Machine with a cool hairdryer to blow the Cotton Candy out one end as it's woven?

But.. you are replacing the Cotton Candy (sugar) with some other material that's a fast drying liquid?

Dave :^)

I'm having trouble with the picture your drawing, but you got the idea right?

As for the replacement, it's a compound.

2-fingers up,
Dude

Sounds like a good start. I wonder if the plaster would have grit in it that could clog the extruder after a while. But there's vinyl spackling compound, which might go a little smoother. Or bathtub caulk. I wonder what sort of compound is in those aerosol can string shooters that are now so popular at kid's parties. That stuff tugs apart very easily, of course, so you'd want to go in the direction of more tensile strength. And cohesion with hard surfaces, if you're emulating Spiderman.

The plaster will give the cement it's tacky property, the extruder is really just a strainer with a stencil, so you're right it'll need more air pressure if the cementbever drys. That's what the acetone is for. I hope to someday imbed parker's machinery into a model.
