Video: How does a Nerf Gun work?


Jared Owen posted another brilliant explainer video. I'm always really impressed withe clarity of his work and find that his topics are fascinating. Highly recommended!

Hello BlenderNation!

I made a video on a Nerf Gun works. The shape of the Nerf Gun was a real challenge to model - lots of curved surfaces mixed with defined edges. The mesh isn't perfect but I think it turned out pretty good. I used the Animation Nodes addon for the part where the screws come out. I had so much fun making this and hope you enjoy watching!

I make 3D animations about how things work and post them to youtube!


  1. Nice video, good clean animation and some nice modeling.
    The main thing I would add, a brief explanation that the disruptor can do slam fire, and how the mechanism allows firing repeatedly without releasing the trigger.
    it's an interesting set of constraints that not all nerf blasters meet.
