freeze your axis arm in the position you want to release the projectile. add a rope from here to the floor to stop the arm from going too far.

Step 7: Prop

select a prop to use for your projectile (im using a gas canister) freeze it in place above the cart. use the prop spawner tool and click on the canister. weld it to the ground and unfreeze. IMPORTANT: select the no collide tool and click on the spawner. if you dont do this it will muck up the whole catapult!
