Finally finished up the model changes for this fun project! Hit play below to see the 3D model. https://sketchfab.com/3d-models/a-amazonrc-complete-fcd7943a0eeb4e479ecfd137b7ae796f 1. Take an RC car 2. Pull its guts out 3. Model and print a kit 4. Put it all together 5. Build any RC car you can imagine!
I finally got to play with flexible filament! A client needed a push button for a prototype. I was really impressed with SainSmart's Flexible TPU. The first print came out great, using the recommended settings.
My RC Tech project has been very fun experimenting with new techniques! This is my first project using Top-down design in SolidWorks and it's awesome! It will definitely be my go to design style from now on. Top-down is sketching all of your parts in your main assembly and referencing each part sketches to it, … Continue reading Top down design & reduce 3D printed supports
I wanted to create a dish to catch the solution that bubbles out and keep the top heavy case from getting knocked over and came up with this and it works great! Check it out on Thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3405111
I love re-purposing things and this can became home to my 3D printing tools. But I quickly realized it wasn't efficient... So I took some measurements & jumped on Fusion360 to design a tool holder to keep the bigger tools organized!
My soldering skills are a little rusty, but I picked it back up like riding a bike!
Daniel Norée (creator of benchy) danielnoree.com designed an RC car based off F1 car in Fusion360 and 3D printed it! And to top that it's open source and continuously being improved. Daniel has a great answer for "what can you do with a 3D printer" and I look forward to everything else he comes up … Continue reading OpenRC F1 3D printed RC car
This spool holder has seen some miles in the last year and I noticed it had cracked and miraculously still holding on! So I went back to the drawing board! I had originally found this on thingiverse.com but I redesigned for narrower spools. (I can't help myself, I have to tweak everything somehow!) In this … Continue reading Spool Holder Redesign
