"Snoozing on his throne, the last sound Lord Aethelred heard was a flaming cask of night soil splintering the Great Hall's rafters."
--Qie Zi, The Art of Seej
The Penny Mortar will loft a U.S. penny over the sofa with contemptuous ease.
The zip file contains all pieces broken out so that international Thingiversians can scale the nock for their local coinage.
Construction requires a pair of elastic bands. See the Zheng3 Penny Ballista for detailed instructions on rigging the bands through the posts and nock. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:23464
Flagrant stagecraft alert: there's a piece of hookup wire holding the nock in firing position.
Seej is a tabletop wargame based around 3D printing. Check out http://s33j.net for rules and more information.
