    SuperTiller - Virtual bow design/tillering

    Post by Ivo on Wed May 12, 2010 5:07 pm

    Hello Everyone,

    I've been wondering for quite a while now about a certain piece of archery oriented software called "Super Tiller". It was made by Flight Archery enthusiast seeking to understand what makes an efficient stick bow(profile, taper, ...). I've played with it when making wooden bows and it was sufficient in that case, but when I stepped things up and my eyes opened to a world of crossbows...I hit a wall when trying to adjust limb length.

    Is anyone familiar with this or similar software?

    The example of this app being used as well as a download link can be found here >>>Link

    Hello Ivo, and guild...

    I want to tiller fibre glass billets into limbs.  I have some 2 in x .5 in from Bingham.  I got 4 36 in lengths to allow for screw-ups or maybe even a couple of projects.

    The first project will be a compound reverse draw similar to the Scorpyd.

    Has anyone tillered this stuff? Any advice?
