Ahoy. The name is Mikom. I do 3D modeling, rendering and just general design. I'm a person who over past few years has taken a great interest in formulating ideas in 3D space. Ideas are my trade in many ways yet I also lean towards the practical. I have worked on several mods and game projects though modeling for games is not my first area of expertise. Here on ModDB/IndieDB I keep an eye on the Humor Satire Parody group, I follow the modding community and watch game productions that have peaked my interest. Feel free to go through my blogs or image gallery if you want to get a glimpse of what I do. As always, have a nice day!

I admit, the string set up of a compound bow/crossbow was a complete mystery to me as well before I built this thing.
There came a point though where I had to look it up in order to advance the design.
Now I'd like to think I've got a pretty decent idea of how it works and it makes the design just the more epic.

There is one string and two cables. The main string pulls back the limbs and rotates the wheels such that the cables going from either side also pull on the limbs. This drags the limbs inwards making it even more compact.
Upon release the limbs pull outwards and the wheels rotate quickly pulling hard on the cables / string making the arrow go "whoomp". =)
