Hey guys,
I'm having some trouble printing the F1 rear axle and the spur gear. Do you have any recommended settings for getting these perfect?

Thanks
Jim

:D
What can you win? All great contests have great prizes and ours is no exception. Each month one best design will win Skriware 3D printer. To keep a temperature during competition, every week we will reward one designer with a roll of 3D printing filament. Month image. Month count ...

Here´s video no 4 in the "Build with me" series on the OpenRC F1 and it´s all about the steering and servo saver.
It´s a little longer than i like but hopefully it makes things clearer on the steering.

Sweet 3DPrinting memories... =)
 
#Throwbackthursday
Some 3,5 years ago i released this first video of the OpenRC Truggy and it´s 3Dprinted drivetrain. I had already spent alot of time on it and i would spend a whole lot more before i moved on to the next project. Everything was printed in ABS which was all i knew at the time, that also changed alot during the coming year.
Little did i know what would become of this project! =)

If you had one, what was coming out of your 3DPrinter at the time?

Hi, Has anyone tested the amount of weight that can/could be mounted upon the Truggy's 3D Printed Chassis? I have a project in mine that involves placing ~4-5kg upon it.  Any recommendations for printing material used and settings? Many Thanks for you time

+TeamDogoman Rc after some reading of linked content for this group, I came to the same conclusion. Will be printing the parts in colour fabb xt-copolyester.

you are printing too hot which causes the layers to warp. Also make sure there is NO air ventilation at all arround your printer (no open doors,windows and stuff)

OpenRC 3RC remix of barspin's truggy

I was advised to share this here! Let me know what you think, constructive criticism welcomed!
Version 1 of my remix of barspin's truggy. I haven't got a working printer right now so I won't be able to print it just yet! I welcome feedback. Main modifications: Redesign of front end to remove front wheel drive Simplification of chassis with removal of 4WD system Addition of rear suspension mounts to top plate Complete redesign of rear end for single wheel To do: Print it! Find a suitable drive belt Add tensioner to drive belt to cope for su...

Hey Group, it's been a while since I've been in here. I've been busy working on a few things including this Quadcopter for a mold making video series I just finished up. This shows how we used a 3D Printed mold in ABS (PLA works well too!) for making custom flex-foam landing pads from 2-part, castable polyurethane foam. I also 3D printed the rest of the airframe pieces aside from some 5/8 Spruce arms and a separate molded polyurethane part to make the high impact "roll cage" (more on that later). Anyway, let me know what you think or if you have any questions. The files can be found on thingiverse: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1746672

Hey everybody!

Sourcing parts is one of the things seems to be creating most problems for those wanting to build a OpenRC project. As I would like to use only 3dprinted parts sometimes sourced hardware will make the projects better.
I'm currently looking at designing a solution for the next project that involves threaded rods. Size is probably around M5...
So my question to you is, can those interested source threaded rods or will this be a problem?
Is there perhaps a company here in the group that can sell threaded rods?

Let me know what you guys think.

Thanks for all the answers, it´s good to know even though i have now ditched this idea for a 3D Printed version.. ;-)

After working out some problems with my printer and some stl's, I have finally started to build a working prototype! However i only managed to print out half of it before i ran out of filament... 😒

Here´s how i test 3dprinting filament and my OpenRC designs.. =)
 
While developing the OpenRC Truggy during 2013-2014 i spent alot of time doing my best trying to break it to find the weak spots.
I also tested a fair amount o 3DPrinting filament to find out what would be best suited for a R/C car like the OpenRC Truggy.
While i´m not a videoguy most of it wasn´t filmed but here´s a short video where you´ll get a glimpse of how i test 3DPrinting filament! =)

Theres no better way to test stuff than a good old extreme bashing session

Simplify3D has made thing a whole lot easier when i´ve been developing The OpenRC Projects. I´m stoked to get the chance to give this away!
 
Thanks for the love everybody, here´s a chance to get a Simplify3D license of your own! =)
