This can be used for adults too. Its a matter of scaling to suit your ride.

Instructions

Print for each scooter :-
Shoe x 2 (with support and course layer height)
Bushes x 4 (Suggest high infill for strength)

If you need to scale the model to suit your print bed or scooter, then Use the openSCAD file Bush.scad to generate yourself a custom bush.

Replace the front and rear scooter wheels with these shoes.
Be warned, these are large prints (230mm) at full size.
Childs scooter? How about "MY Scooter" I will try and remix for the adult (Stunt) Scooter..

How long to print a shoe?

For me about 5 hours per shoe at 0.4mm layer height, it doesn't have to be a fine resolution.
So cool, I wish it snowed here :(
This is awesome I wish I had a 3D printer when I still rode those... I might just have to try it again.
hi does it work on razor big wheel scooters or just small???
I thought of designing and printing some snow skates this year, but this is infinitely cooler! thanks for sharing!
100% fill ABS needed ?

I would go for high infill for the bushes, but the shoes, I would print relatively low but with a few extra perimeters, YMMV.
Cannot download this fast enough.
Need to mod for our full suspension Royce Union scooter.... hmmm tasty full suspension skis cooter

*excite*
I sliced it with Makerbot without errors
Is there are reason why I can't slice it with Slic3r?
It is an error message when I try to slice it.
Could you please advice...

Hi, I have had problems with Slic3r (through Repetier) when the model is too large, even though it appears to fit on the build plate it quickly returns an error. I have never really looked into this error too much as my usual answer is to slice with CraftWare
Slic3r demands a 10% (or something like that) buffer around the print bed for whatever reason. I often get rejected at 480mm on a 500mm bed. It's lame but there. We adjusted the printer profile to exceed actual and then moved the X/Y home location to match the real world location. It's a work around but it works if you need full bed.
Very nice hack...
