Be careful, don't hurt yourself or others. I'm not responsible for anything related to your actions :D

Inspired by : http://www.slingshotchannel.com/

Version 2.0
Added 52mm diameter whisker biscuit recess.

Version 1.9
Re-topologised and remodelled to reflect Joerg's revised slingbow design. STL file is high poly and OBJ file is low poly so it is easier for you to remix if you like.

Version 1
A rough mix of Joerg Sprave's Rambone cleanup by Kulitorum (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:311393) and Bmeece's whisker biscuit (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:316711)
Haven't tested it with arrows yet ... but I'll update this soon.


Simplify3D Slicing : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tnLFRf8iX34
I haven't yet tested the strength of this slicing. Best to print as solid as you can if you are unsure.

hi great design. i do have a problem with v2 file, when i open it in Cura its as big as a car. the scale is completely off, i can scale it down but without printing one or more im just guessing as to the correct size. if the size is off then the whiskerbiscut will not fit. can you give me the correct length x width x height in mm so i can scale it? thanks

I don't know if you've heard, but Jorg, creator of the original rambone, is in trouble. He might lose his livelyhood because of an article in the DailyNews depicting him as a guy who shows how to stab policmen, when he was actually testing the "stabproof" vest for civilians.
He explains it here:

Hi mate, I have a question for you, when I go my calculations in the sling shot channel web site my arrow is 400g and that pretty heavy compared to a ball, so I just pick a 20mm steel ball I get to to make a 16cm long band for a 29inch arrow, does that sound right?
Also can you do a slower vid of sow you made your nock?
BTW please have a look at my slot bow Iv put up also inspired by joerg

great design!!! Just wanted to say that I bought one a few years back and had pulled the arrow back too far and it came back through rest and set on my hand...I let go and sent it into my hand... you can figure out the rest but to all who plan on using, they are so much fun just do not lose focus when you are drawing to ensure that the arrow does not slip through and you end up with a hole in your hand!! like i said great design just be careful!

For sure, there's lots of potential for hurting yourself or others through improper use of this thing. I urge everyone who downloads this to take 18Morrow's advice onboard. Personally, I use arrows that are longer than my draw length which helps mitigate this particular problem. Please take care when using this to avoid harming any living thing.
