Air propelled Car with tapered axels by benstoltz Dec 12, 2012


The original 5mm diameter axels would not fit in the 4.7mm diameter holes (as printed). So, rather than fix my printing error, I made some tapered axels that fit quite nicely in the holes.

I printed the body at 15% infill, 0.27mm layer height with exterior support.

The rest of the parts were printed at 50%. Only the axels need exterior support, but I plated all the non-body parts for unattended printing.

The original parts are included for completeness.
