Custom made darts

I am looking at purchasing some custom made darts, but need to send the specs/drawings for them to be made.

Does anyone know any user friendly apps or something I could use to design my perfect darts?

A simple sketch is usually all we would need, doesn't need to be anything fancy.

It is a free online (runs in your browser) 3D modeling software and was made "specifically for kids and people with no experience in 3D".

I tried it for 10 minutes, seems to do the job quit easy, but you still have to invest a few hours to design your first dart.

Fusion360 is also from Autodesk and is also free for students and hobiests, but is much more complex.   Tinkercad is helping me to learn, thank you!

CAD is not super user friendly overall. I've spent a bunch of hours doing it, and most of the free options I have seen have a pretty high bar for entry to using it for modeling something in 3D which are as detailed as barrels. You're likely to get much faster results drawing them by hand unless you also have experience using CAD apps.

To start off with, I would speak with whoever you are getting them made by (I recommend Anthony at custom made darts).

His knowledge is amazing and he can tell you exactly what he needs to be able to make your perfect set of darts

Price is £55 for a customised set. He also used to run madhouse darts who were a sponsor of this site. He has a Facebook page too where they post a lot of pics of their latest custom darts.

I did exactly the same as this.

Nothing like your own set of custom made darts.
Back playing and having fun!
