I was actually able to fit both pieces on a 120 mm bed.

What are the dimensions when printed as is? Thanks

is there a specific infill that you would recommend? i know putting it at 5% would be bad, but would 30 or 50% be good? or should i just put it at 100%?

I made it with 15% and it works fine.

I think the dimensions for your US nock are a little messed up, can you double-check it?

Thanks! It was at 10% size, I've updated it.

Holy cow you are fast.

Thanks for the swift reply, I'll print one off now.

Hello, would it be possible to add EURO coins in the nock?
A 1 eurocent coin has these official dimensions:
diameter: 16,25 mm
thickness: 1,67 mm

That would be awesome.
Thanks in advance!

OK! I just uploaded a eurocent nock, let me know how well it fits. (Alas I have no eurocents with which to test.)

zheng3, thanks for the adaptation!
I printed the Ballista today and the thing shoots 1 eurocents very good. I uploaded a picture with a coin in the 'Made' section.
Is this how the coins suppose to fit?
Thanks again and i'll have to watch my back from now on if the kids are around :)

Any chance about adding a eurocent fitting nock? Or posting instructions on how to customise one to make it fit.

Looks like the model for the US penny nock is actually just another ballista. Would it be possible to upload a US-scaled nock?

Thanks for the heads up! All fixed now. Don't shoot your eye out!
