I just printed the tracks for this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

a delay is no problem i split out just the bottom rails so i can assemble
the parts and work on the electronics will post a pic when i have some more parts printed

Thanks for the positive feedback! :-)

Regarding the height of the middle part you mentioned - just splitting the part would not be enough. We should also find the way to fix two parts together by assembly. Despite the fact that it is printable on Ultimaker, we are working on the way to split this part. The main reason is that such large print fails sometimes and we would like to split it in smaller parts. However it is not currently on top of our todo list and it might take several weeks before we come back to this task.

Since we provide all the original Blender files, you can try to split it yourself. Please let us know if you will find the nice way to do it.

Very nice project
would it be possible to split the height of the carcass in half the height of the print wont fit my reprap and turning it will increase the print time with support to 21 hours

Very cool. Looks like you've got a lot of infrastructure here for a truly awesome rover.

Thanks! Yes, we are working since at least 3 years on it and it took several iterations to come from piece of wood with three wheels to this 3D printed version :-) .
