The shooting sport is one of the most widespread sports in the world and it is
being practice in most countries. Based on their own experiences, in competition -
and hobby shooting, the client M4Solutions found a demand and need for a
shooting target that is manufactured in Sweden.
The purpose of the project has been to develop, with the help of Marcus Walldén,
two shooting targets from idea to finished product. These two shooting targets,
Plate Rack Target and Dueling Tree, would each be equipped with a mechanical
resetting system but will in the future have the ability to be provided with an
electronic resetting system.
The project from the client was divided into two theses. One of these two, written
by Marcus Walldén, focused on the tripod parts and the overall design work for
both Plate Rack Target and Dueling Tree. The thesis that is presented in this
report have focused on resetting systems, the design of protective plates and other
peripherals for both shooting targets.
This work has primarily been in CAD environment where design, construction
and development has been given free rein. Calculations, test shootings and choice
of materials has been made in order to reach the best possible solutions. The thesis
resulted in two complete 3D models and two full-scale prototypes of steel.
