Mad probs for redoing the design for us :D

I think I'll try to 3d print this project, in mini scale of course and see how good it will work!

Cool project! Thanks a lot for the discussion of trebuchet efficiency, that was extremely interesting.

Out of curiosity: Would it be possible to use to slow-motion footage to establish the remaining velocity of the counterweight in the moment it moves through the bottom position?

That might give us an idea of how much of the residual energy is stored in the trebuchet itself, and how much goes into the frame.

i just saw your video on the vertical launching trebuchet
