Summary

Different wheels for RC vehicles, was designed to fit Daniels cool OpenRC Truggy http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:42198 but as you can see in my pics/vids they will also fit others (with 12mm wheel hex nut) For 17mm go here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:970573

Print the parts without support.
I use 6pcs M4x25mm screws for each tire.

Designed the first sets on the plane home from Shanghai to kill some time... I did not try them all out, I hope you can do that :-)
Included some STEP files and a tire without the tracks so you can add your own...

Check out my PI-ETPU 95-250 Carbon Black filament, it´s a professional 3D printer flexible and conductive filament

Don´t need the conductivity?

Well the conductivity is great for some things but perhaps not your first choice? Then consider this:

This filament will give you some really nice benefits if the conductivity is not an disadvantage for your 3D printed design:

•The material composition eliminates “stringing / webbing” issues.
•The hardness of 95 shore A and the carbon black filler makes for great print abilities.
•The carbon black filler is an excellent UV stabilizer thus the prints are built to last in very harsh environments.
•The matte black surface finish has a very exclusive look.
•The material feels very nice and dry to touch.
•The elongation at break is only 250%.

Palmiga, I just got my hands on a Monoprice Maker Select (Wanhao Duplicator i3) and I was wondering what the best/optimal settings would be for Cura to print your extreme snow tires? I have a roll of Sainsmart TPU filament.

Hi Devin, for starters I have no experience with that printer nor the Satinsmart TPU filament. You can se here that the i3 is not recommended for soft filaments http://www.creativetools.se/eco-tpu-60d-1-75mm-svart-1kg?filter_name=tpu but I do not think that should stop you from trying. Go slow...
My general advice regarding soft filaments http://rubber3dprinting.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/Rubber3Dprinting_ETPU-TPU-TPE.pdf

Well I did find a mod for the extruder https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:981106. It allows for a 4mm OD PTF tube to be inserted to stop the filament from binding.

Great! will be nice to see your work later

I was able to successfully print one of your designs on my 3D printer with that mod that I mentioned. I will post some pics after I have the rims printed and have them together. Thank you for your suggestions.

Nice :-)

wow man great job i been trying to think of designs to use but you did it for me. lol i will try a few for my boy this winter. printing for christmas! save time gas shopping and print gifts!

nice :-) thanks

straight pla extreme snow tires! got three done so far. wow takes alot of filament like 56m . still way worth it as i don't think they will ever need replaced, ever. i plan to use them only for snow sand mud. they are perfect. only need to slightly sand to fit them with the rims. suppose they fit great though made from flexible filament. merry Christmas.

merry christmas :-)

new test... VRX SWORD on frozen snow: http://youtu.be/aw55c0WH744

:-) perhaps even bigger treads/tracks are needed

Can You make this ORC_rim4 little stornger - i mean more material aroud HEX nut ?

// nice project. :-)

Hi Jaroslaw, check the new version I uploaded. Did you use it and it broke? Material used?

i used pla it didn't break yet as i haven't installed them yet. but hes right the hex should be deeper set into the rim. if you could fix that it would be great!

Hi !

first test on ICE ... snow hmmm this is white but see movie >> :-( http://goo.gl/ucvdrH

// on back whell i install strong version //

Thanks for sharing SP3SWJ :-) I did design a version for ice with spikes but dont know if I dare to share the model since it could be dangerous to use...

yes do share it we will assume our own responsibility. your tires rock!

Just write remarks... You use on own risk :-)

see this : iCE Chains & Floating RC TiRES: http://youtu.be/08UgwZQZq58

big empty inside and You can swim.

Yes but I do not want anybody to hurt them selves either way :- ( Those swimming tires are cool...

put a huge warning label on it so they know its dangerous. also whats the diameter of the holes where the bots go i'm trying to see if i can use these on a new bright RC intimidator.

I have printed 5 whell

  • 4pcs - 3 perimeter infill 15% printspeed 30mm/s - 15m filament 124gram
  • 1pcs - 5 perimeter infill 30% printspeed 30mm/s - 19m filament 155gram

and three psc rim...

Now I print two "strong" and install on back whell - light version on front

  • please see on bottom of link :-) You will se test of "light whell"

Nice quality prints Jaroslaw!

can you print the tires in PLA as well as the wheel hubs? or do you need to use a special filament? I know in other videos I've seen "ninjaflex" and you look like you are using rubber? please advise

You are free to test any material but I strongly suggest the use of soft materials, I have not tested Ninjaflex yet but it will for sure be good for the tires. I have used a more economic material at 85 Shore A, called Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU)

Jan 27, 2015 - Modified Jan 27, 2015

Added a extreme snow tire and 4 new rims. now 36 possible combinations...

Added new version of the tire pattern and a new rim...

I really like your tire and rim design for the OpenRC but I noticed the size of the six holes for the RIM2 version were not designed for the m4x25mm screws as you stated in the Thing info. I finished printing all four of them. I wanted to know which tires will have the same holes for RIM2 and what will be the correct screws sizes??? or maybe redesign the six screw holes of the RIM2 that will fit the m4. Thanks!

Palmiga - in reply to joemetley

Hi Joe or Roger?, You are correct. Sorry about that, the new version is now available here http://www.thingiverse.com/download:1051446 To make up for the error I made 4 more rims designs, now we got 36 combinations to choose from, too much perhaps...

Added a new version...
