To design this inclusive range in 3D printing, I started from the observation that when we practice badminton, whether we are a valid player but especially being a wheelchair parabadminton player, we have no object to store the shuttles, whether on the court or on a sport wheelchair.
These objects are intended to facilitate the practice for all and improve the performance by having access to the shuttles more easily.

No object to store shuttles on sports wheelchair and badminton poles existed before.

The Open Shuttle range is totally made in plastic (PLA) with a 3D printer.

It’s an inclusive range, for every player of badminton and parabadminton.
The three objects have sizes holding in a hand and they are very light.
First object: High: 5cm, Long: 6cm, Wide: 62cm
Second object: High: 3cm, Long: 20cm, Wide: 12cm
Third object: High: 15cm, Long: 12cm, Wide: 9,5cm
