This is a civilian version of the Faire Play Recurve Bow and Bracer released by Zheng3 to mark his Faire Play Kickstarter reaching the initial fundraising goal.
The original bracer is oversize to fit around plate armor. I have remixed the bracer to fit a standard Barbie-style doll arm while maintaining compatibility with the original Recurve Bow.
When I attempted to print the original Recurve Bow, even after making some adjustments, my printer hit the hard end stops. I realized the Zheng Industries forges were producing full scale war bows intended to punch through enemy armor. The civilian version of the bow is scaled down 75% in length and width to fit a smaller build plate (110mmx110mm) but maintains the full thickness of the original for strength. The loop for the arrows and the indentation for the bracer have been kept at their original size. Meaning the civilian bow is compatible with the original bracer. Bow has also been altered for a right hand draw.
The set is perfect for a variety of bow wielding characters such as Merida, Katniss/Gale or the kids from Red Dawn (original).
I sponsored the Faire Play: Barbie-Compatible 3D Printed Medieval Armor at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/191197566/faire-play-barbie-compatible-3d-printed-medieval-a and you should too.
Printed in PLA 0.2 mm layer height. Experimenting with Loctite Plastics Bonding System which claims to fuse hard-to-bond plastic. Seems to have done a good job with attaching the bracer to the bow.
