Introduction: Ballista Desktop Siege Weapon

Picture of Ballista Desktop Siege Weapon

A Desktop Siege Weapon made with the help of a 3D printer!


I decided to enter the Ballista into the formlabs contest!

The ballista and other designs I have on Thingiverse are all limited to the simple 3D printing filaments including (for me) just PLA or ABS as well as necessary (but difficult to deal with) supports for complex prints. Not that these methods are undesirable, but other materials and methods used with the Form1+ can be advantageous to future designs. I am always investing in software and equipment to help make what I work on whether it be for Thingiverse or my own personal use, more professional and creative. This device would help encourage new design ideas and of course new designs to the general public.

This desktop siege weapon requires the use of a 3D printer.

This is the 3rd version of the ballista I have designed. It requires no glue for assembly.

Step 2: Acquiring the Files

Head on over to Thingiverse and get the files. Download these files and print them on your printer.

Step 3: Assembly

To assemble either follow the picture or the video!
