A recurve bow for shooting straws and other light weight arrows!
Please note this bow propels light arrows at high velocity, parental control is necessary!
The bow features a 10mm through hole for various sizes of arrows, and the accessory parts allows you to convert regular straws (8mm and 5mm versions included) in to arrows (these are not the most accurate things in the world, but gets things started...). You can also use straws as they are!
The bow comes in two versions, glue only version and one with M3 holes on the limbs and grip. The total length is 62cm, and it is scalable to any size!
The easiest way to install the string is to make two loop knots at roughly the correct length, insert one end to the limb and wind the string until it is tight enough and connect the other end. Please note that with some plastics, the limbs loose their tension over time, so disconnect the string between use to prevent this.

The limbs need support for the very end, remember to lay them flat on the print bed in the slicer! The hole in the grip might need support, but remember to make it not too dense for easy removal.
