The MyPie Catapult is a great introduction to hands-on making with 3D printed parts. It's easy to assemble and is fully adaptable, making it a great platform for mechanical design!Maya is the brains behind the MyPie Catapult. She loves eating pies, being creative, and is really good at drawing! She is 12 years old.Maya saw a small wooden catapult for sale at the store. She wanted to buy it, but decided that she could design a better one herself. She designed and drew the MyPie Catapult.Maya recruited her uncle Noah to help with the project. He likes building things and is really good at 3D printing! Noah turned Maya’s drawings into 3D printable parts, and made them on his 3D printers. Follow our step by step instructions to build your own pie shooting catapult!MORE INFORMATION CAN BE FOUND HERE: http://www.exploremaking.com/#... ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS: http://media.wix.com/ugd/5c0f4...  -- The MyPie project is designed to be approachable by new makers. all of the print files are simple, and do not require any support or high-resolution printer settings. The parts are fully adaptable, and can be re-purposed to build a number of projects with 1/4 inch wooden dowels. http://www.exploremaking.com/#!mypie/j31u3 http://media.wix.com/ugd/5c0f41_533324ad145c488b929d6a38c00805a4.pdf
We designed this castle playset as a modular toy that can easily be 3D-printed at home.The set contains walls, towers, houses, characters, animals, and a myriad of different props. All parts are small enough to be 3D-printed in a build volume of 140 x 140 x140 mm.The walls and towers fit together easily using a simple 3D-printable butterfly joint. You can make as many parts as you want to create your original castle layout!STAY TUNED!Today (the 1st of December 2016), we release a few of the STL files so that you can start building your castle.We will then each day until the 24th of December, release new files that you can download and 3D-print for your castle.Note: Please let us know if you have any suggestions for new objects in this kit. We will continue to expand this collection.This project was created by Tim Wahlström in cooperation with the 3D-team at http://CreativeTools.se #3DCastlePlayset http://CreativeTools.se
Figured I would share this gem I whipped up for the Seej  game catapult that allows some adjustment to the trajectory of the projectile. I used the catapult and flag in a variation  of Seej. You will want to print this in flexible filament and depending on the stiffness may want to slide it on before assembling the catapult.Coincidentally, I made a video  of printing these to show of my first use of BuildTak. https://pinshape.com/items/5207-3d-printed-2015-seej-starter-set https://pinshape.com/items/28870-3d-printed-hallway-seej https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3o5gZPUBiHw
