A friend of a friend had an opportunity to print this catapult from Printable Scenery for me. He’s got a ‘slightly’ better printer than me, but it cost around half a million SEK (or £/€ 50 000) so it should be :)I got the stl-file for this single-piece model from a kickstarter a while ago, but if you want one yourself it is possible to get the the file either as a single file or as a part of a siege-engine bundle (that is presently on sale).
Even though it comes as a single-piece print I had to repair it, and reposition the lever, as my pal had mistakenly parked a heavy suitcase on it. The single-piece was in three pieces when I got it, and that proved to be one piece short of what was needed. To make matters worse, the missing piece was small and made of a clear translucent plastic... It was eventually found in the bottom of a backpack.
Anyway, here’s the finished catapult. Amazing detail and no sign of it being a printed piece.
