130mm RC PLA printed Buldozer
with servo motor and gears
7805 voltage regulator
"all functions" each thread and the arm.
It's an RC buldozer that i designed and made with an huxley reprap.
To make it you need :
-2x 608 bearings,
-M8 screw rod with some nuts (nylon nuts seems to fit well inside 608 bearings)
Now for the mechanical part :
Before printing make sur that you correctly positioned the part in your slicing software, some of my stl are "in the air"
You will certainly need some wood fill mainly on the tank thread and the tooth of the "wheels" to make them run smoothly.
I use "acetone " (french word for the chemical that melt the PLA) to glue all the parts together
The thread are assembled with paper clip
Don't forget to screw the servo before assembling and to not glue the hood and top to put batteries and electronic in it.
If you have a programmable transmitter you could make mix and have on one stick all directions.
By the way the thread are slipery on hard surface but on grass/earth/sand it should be fine.
Oh and i forgot : it's really fun to drive and clean the mess on my desk with it ;)
See it in action :
