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!

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.
The MyPie Catapult design is optimized to print easily on any desktop 3D printer. The parts are simple, have secure bases, and do not require any support structure.
We recommend a print setting of 200uM or higher for best results.
