This is loosely based on a desing from an instructable I found to create a paper catapult. "http://www.instructables.com/id/Launch-It:-The-Paper-Catapult." I\'ve modified the design some. Hopefully this will scale and print ok, I don\'t have any way to test it at the present.


Once it is printed you will only need a small wire or bar of some type to place through the holes to connect the arm to the body. Then just put some type of ammo in it and fire away. (its even \"green\", you fire it with your finger, no evil batteries required) My kids loved the paper version but they just weren\'t durable enough for them. With a couple of these, you should be able to have an all out battle. You should be able to use the small enclosed area to store your ammo when not in battle.

Wow, sure does!! Wish I had searched for an existing one before I spent all that time in Blender now!! :-[ I like how you built the pin to connect yours, nice idea. Oh well, too late now!

I made a catapult based on kiteman's too :-[

but mine was the only one that had the openscad files, AFAIK

Can always say that it is a "derivate" of my work... I dont mind.

I will give credit where credit is due! (as I did with the link to instructables where I got the idea to improve upon). I never saw what you had done in my life and its in no way a derivative of your work. Its a rather common design, thats about like saying your ball looks like mine so you should give me some credit.
