Custom made darts
Hiya
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?

This is how I did mine....if the machinist is any good he can work with just about anything....as long as you know the dimensions you want. Depends on the level of detail you want though.

I used MSPaint - cut up sections of existing darts and joined them all in one frankenstein mash up lol. Added the dimensions I wanted and Tony did a first class job of making them for me.

Yup, over the years I had several sets made by Jeff Pickup (RIP) and I always sent him hand drawings. Well, technically, I would do the hand drawing, and then take a pic of the drawing with my phone and email him that, but still a hand drawing.

Think for most folks submitting customs designs, the KISS principle comes into play.  CAD software and user friendly are not terms often used in the same breath.  This thread might help:

For what it's worth, I've seen members design darts using Microsoft Visio, Blender 3D, LibreCAD - to name a few.  But that's probably way over the top for submitting a custom design.

Pen and paper work fine, you dont need a perfect drawing, you can work easily with any custom maker back & forth, best thing is to know your demensions

If someone wants to try a 3D software, i recommend Tinkercad for your first steps.
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.

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

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).
