3D Printed 9mm Carbine The TacDaddy

TacDaddy Details

The TacDaddy is finally here thanks to 3D gun developer and website owner Ctrl+Pew.

The TacDaddy is a 9mm Carbineish Blowback pistol and is the successor to the MacDaddy/Tac 9.

The TacDaddy was designed to have parts that are easy to find and cost-effective.

The design of the TacDaddy is also one of the cleanest and overall slick designs when it comes to the carbine/pistol category.

The documentation is thorough yet concise making the TacDaddy a great build for 3D gun printing pros and novices alike.

Suggested 3D Print Settings

  • TacDaddy Magwell/trigger guard on the print bed.
  • Rotated L/R 45 degrees
  • You can try others if you like. It’s not overly sensitive to orientation. This one provided the fastest and most sturdy prints.
  • It should fit on the standard ender 3 or 5 print bed pointed from one corner to the other.
  • make sure your bed is set to 235×235.
  • Check that your build plate adhesion settings are “none”
  • Infill: 100%
  • Walls/Shell: 6-8
  • Layer: .16 – .2

Support: Yes/Normal
Tree supports may cause issues when interacting with the outside edges of your print bed. I would advise against using it but I’ve also had it work well.
