Hallo!
I'm building Open Truggy Rework, you know the alternative to this differential?
In hobby king is still out of stock :(


Is there any alternative to this differential? http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__16143__Central_Diff_Complete_1Pc_Bag_33154.html

PROTO-PASTA GIVEAWAY

Ok, i´ve been meaning to do this for a while and i´ll try to be better at making things like this happen more often in the future! And by "things like this" i mean giveaways/competitions. So during the coming months you will all have a chance to put your hands on Filament, 3D Printing spare parts/accessories, Software and actual 3DPrinters!

To kick this of we´ll do a giveaway to celebrate that the FB group has reached and passed 500 members. (And don´t worry, the next one will celebrate whatever this G+ community has reached at the time for the next giveaway/contest).
It seems that using "Gleam" is how you do thing like this these days so i´ll do that and this first one is a chance for me to get my head around how i´ll do this in the future so bare with me.

Anyway, visit the link below and enter. This time it´s the awesome +Proto-pasta will give away a spool of their CF HTPLA and a bonus.

Thanks and good luck!

MakerBot just released a new video about their Smart Extruder. While that might not be entirely relevant to this group, there's the tiny detail that you can catch a glimpse of a OpenRC F1 in the background. =)

That is awesome to have part of this project in a video like that. Too bad it is a video about one of the worst parts of their 3d printer. Although this is the newer version which is supposed to be better than the previous. The so called 'smart' extruder is the single most identified failure and one of the major reasons that the value of the Makerbot brand has decreased by about $800 million.

That being said my truggy is printed on a Makerbot, and I worked with them for about 6 years now.

This is a pretty interesting idea by Thingiverse user "petrex":

http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1549768
Carbon skeleton or 3D component carbon fiber is technique where you print only mounting components of your part. Components are fixed in proper fixing structure and connected with carbon fiber tow. You will create lightweight and rigid carbon fiber parts done by real continuous carbon fiber tow. All details including test results can be found in my instructables tutorial, or briefly bellow. http://www.instructables.com/id/Super-Strong-3D-Componen...

It's a use of carbon fiber in an RC application which is good--especially for a person who is new to carbon. For myself, being that carbon fiber is my business, if I started to use carbon instead of 3D printing then I mine as well just use carbon, but making things that are made of filament is just cool! Using 3D filaments intrigues me and so, for me, I'm sticking with the filaments.

Hello +Daniel Norée and everyone, I downloaded the OPENRC F1 stl files on thingiverse and printed the Dual_Extr files but I noticed there is a problem with the Front Spoiler, it's a bit big (5mm or so) In order for all the screw holes to line up, the front spoiler needs to be shorten. Thanks again for creating this model!

I figured out what's the problem, I originally downloaded the all stl's from Pinshape back in 2015 and printed the Front and Rear Chassis. The dimension of the Front Chassis and Front Spoiler are different the ones from Thingiverse by 5mm.  Ill just have to saw off a little bit on my front chassis to fit everything. Thanks!

And since you asked for the cool tyres... Here they are :)
The tyre is a based on Daniel Norees design that can be found here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1193309 Released on a open source license This tyre has proven to both look cool, throw up alot of dirt, have good grip and still be easy enough to 3D-print! Enjoy!

Printed the F1 front spoiler +Proto-pasta​ in PC-ABS. Came out ok. It was nothing like printing PC, it was so much easier, maybe even to easy... Have to see what it offers in terms of strength.

Open up the .step file in fusion, and got to a part. I went to the frame piece, that is right underneath the body (Body Plate_Default). Click on it, It should turn blue as it is highlighted. left click on it and click "find in browser". the part should either be highlighted in the "browser" menu or it will have a checkered blue line underneath it. It will be what is called a component. You can either click on the component file itself or open up all of the drop down expandable menus so and click on the body. Only do the latter if there are multiple bodies and one or a few are not shown (if it is not shown the light next to it will be off). Click on the part in the browser, left click again and then click "Save as STL." Save it to your computer and then open up your slicer. Drop it into your slicer. You may have to reorientate it so that it is laying flat. Then you are able to print. Try to first figure out which parts can be printed without slicing. When you get to slicing, I will explain how you can go about that.

Is it normal that I have difficulty to install most m3 nuts where it need to be slides into these "pocket"?

All other drop-in nut holes are fine but it's really hard for all others. The one in the picture is not even possible to do place..

I usually print all parts in a few printers and slicers and they all worked out well. However as you noted about the nose i have also had this problem when printing it on my ZYYX. I´ll have a look and see if i should modify the CAD file.

I want to start start printing with the Nylon. Does anyone have a profile for a Makerbot 2x printer and the Taulman 618 Nylon filament? What settings do I need to change?

When printing with thinner layers you can reduce the moisture "frosty" effect greatly. I mostly print Nylon from Trimmer line which never gets dried at all. Just try a couple of easy prints to figure out a temperature where is floats easily and also sticks well to the recent layer.
