We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
Back in the 1980s there was an outdoor game called Jarts. The object of this game was to get an oversized dart to stick inside a plastic ring a set distance away. It was a fun game but not necessarily the most safe. For this reason, yard darts were banned for sale in the USA in 1988. Original Jarts are hard to find, but now you can print your own.
First off, a little advice - Don't make this if you're a moron. I'm not responsible for anything bad that may happen if you build one of these and decide not to use your brain. Also, please keep them away from anyone who's prone to accidents or injuries. Keep in mind, while Jarts (aka Lawn Darts) is a fun family game, they were banned for a reason - don't let that reason be because of you.
This file was modeled from an original Jart. I tried to get the flight charistics as close as possible to the real thing.
