"The results of this simulator are right-on with the results I've gotten with every FAT and F2K machine I have. It's amazing!"
-- Ron Toms, Inventor of the FAT and F2K designs.
"These are MUCH more complicated machines to model than a traditional treb."
-- Les Scholz, Programmer and engineer.
Q: What's the best way to learn about the FAT?
A: Build a lot of them!
What's the easiest, cheapest and safest way to test your theories about FATs and F2K machines? Use the simulator!
This is the one and only, authorized and approved, FAT and F2K simulator you can get!
Engineered and programmed by Les Scholz, this simulator models BOTH the FAT and F2K type trebuchets in all their complexity and beauty. It's like getting two simulators for the price of one! You can add the effects of air drag, friction, do stress analysis on your arm, sling, pin, axle... and work out all the finer details of your trebuchet design before you even buy a single piece of lumber. It also includes a metric conversion calculator, release pin optimizer, and you can save hundreds of design parameters and simply load them from disk to work on different projects at the click of a button.
