Oye! Oye!

Zheng3 3D Printing Kickstarter #4 is due to launch in Spring 2016! Join the Horde to be notified when we launch and-- AND! receive a free 3D model not available anywhere else!

We now return you to your regular model description.

"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.

At a minimum, you'll need the Seej starter set: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:24013

You can also search Thingiverse for Things with the seej tag.

Be sure to check Zheng3.com for updates. If Twitter's more your thing then follow Zheng3 at http://twitter.com/Zheng3_Jim

Thanks for the feedback, folks! I've started selling some models as pay-what-you-like downloads at The Bazaar also.
I feel that charging a modest fee for a model on another site allows those with the means and interest to support my continued creation of free, Creative Commons-licensed designs on Thingiverse.
Anyone who can't afford the donation can always grab the free version here.

But what about the legal rights to castles and catapults?

It no longer can be used in Canada! We no longer have pennies. :-)

I feel your pain. I have had to write an essay on why we should stop making pennies in the us and I think that we shouldn't. Education right?
