There is another reason to add the flight plate knurling and/or texture to the underside of the flight plate. It distinguishes this lid from all the others. From a marketing standpoint, that is powerful mojo. Look at what MVP did with the overmold.
Without something to make this disc unique, this will be seen as just a polecat clone.
The pattern you designed for the underside is very visually appealing. It makes the disc easy to identify even with custom stamps or artwork.
If you wanted to compromise with those whom are not fond of the texture, go with fine bead blasting, or fine knurling, for all 3.

I would definitely be open to the fine knurling on the bottom of the flight plate and inside of the rim. Not a fan of the thumb grips though. The texture on the inside is attractive for a thrower who prefers that, but will not be too much to keep someone from buying it who doesn't have a preference. I don't think the same can be said for the thumb grips.

I agree about the thumb grips not a fan, however if you have them in the disc you need to have one of them to have it so a lefty can grip the disc on the tacky side and use the thumb grip if they so chose to do so.

sorry, nothing new to report.
My free printing source is really dragging his feet... but I can't complain if it is free, right?

Anyone else have luck finding a vendor that will print for free?
Are you just looking for a 3D print? If so, we can print it for you in our shop no charge but it will be in PLA. PLA is really rigid and breaks easily if you hit a tree or really smack the basket but it should give you a good approximation of feel and flight.

That would be awesome!

I had a source that was supposed to get me an ABS print from their FDM but it looks like they made get be flaking out on me.

Where can I send the file? PM me an address and I'll get it to you ASAP

Thanks again, you're a real life saver!

Wow, that was fast!
You have a file in your inbox.
Thanks for helping out the DGCR project
I'll post a video to this thread when the disc arrives.

Nice! I mentioned you guys had the ability but didn't want to assume anyone would work for free.

Good peeps at ozone.
