Nice job man!!! I love it so much!!! I am having a lot of fun playing with it. :)

i made it it looks amazing and works great

im making this right now

is it already fit to scale?
or do i have to size it down
bc im not good when it comes to sizing down

im not good at that either

I created it with Sketchup, this was before i learned to use open scad. Printed as is for me on a printrbot.

This catapult works great with ping pong balls or marbles, depending upon how you size it. Plus, it uses a minimal amount of plastic.


Catapult with Text

I printed one off with no infill and two solid layers, adujusted the scad for a 20mm ball. Then adjusted the arm to 7mm smaller. I was trying to knock some of the power down. The catapult can still fling the ball about ten feet. My friend was able to sink a basked from 5 feet away. :)

I read through the catapult. That is a really cool design.
