We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
I've hacked several toy tanks but always wanted to me able to make my own tank treads for robotics projects.
I played around with several different models but couldn't find much to go on other than picture and diagrams.
I've built in some play and made sure the links should print on a makerbot without any problems (minimum overhang).
This design is untested
Plate 1 = 4 drive sprockets
Plate 2 = 24 Treads links
Print out as many of the sprockets/links as you need and assemble the tracks by using 1mm thick pins (coarse wire)

So what's this mean?
We're sure whowhatwhere would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
To post a Make simply visit this Thing again and click I Made One to start uploading your photo. You can also download the Thingiverse Mobile app (available via Google Play and Apple App Store) to take a photo and upload your Make right from the app!
