Universal Servo Driven Tank Tracks
by jasonwelsh, published
I have found tank treads to be an art form in itself!
Nothing was working for me off of Thingiverse as far as "Tank Treads" because most designs were already built for some robot or too big or too small so I needed something that was "Just right". And sturdy / easy to build....
So I made some universal ones with the idea that others might be in the same boat.
These are for small to medium sized bots if your bot is larger than 12in by 12in I would find a different build though.
6in by 6in for the smaller cap.
They are test driven and work great!

This is badass. But... run by a servo? Does a full rotation servo = continuous rotation? I've never used a full rotation servo, I didn't know they could go around more than once.
There is no Scad the blender file is included you would just need to duplicate out the chain to get the measurement for the chassi. You would also need 2 idlers if you went any bigger to.
For the pla question should not be a problem Just know melted PLA will melt pla around it. I cant think of one thing that might effect though in this model. The ABS / PLA is a great combo because PLA melting point is way lower than ABS. So if you make a mistake you can always just cut off the rivot head. There will be non of that for you however.
