I designed this slingshot to be much more compact than my previous version. It's modular; letting you switch between it being a slingshot and a slingbow, letting it fire steel shot or arrows, respectively. (or pebbles, or marbles, or whatever else ammo you have). Simply slide the arrow guide off or on to transform (see photos).
The arrow guide sleeve is intentionally a bit loose, to allow for different tolerance levels between printers. If you find yours is too loose, a layer or two of tape around your yoke should tighten up the fit.
To install slingshot band, insert tubes through the flat side of the yoke (side with divot should be facing forward). Use the two included nibs to insert into slinghot band tube, which--when pulled back against the yoke--should create a lock that prevents the tube from coming back out, strengthened by it's own elastic contraction. (Send me a message if you want a more detailed explanation).
Features a ridged handle for the best grip possible.
Slingshot dimensions (without sleeve): 13.5cm x 8.3cm x 1.6cm
Will be a bit thicker in width with the arrow guide sleeve on.
- 1x Slingshot

Print as oriented in the file, no supports needed. Recommend 100% infill. PLA is fine, but recommend ASA for environmental durability
