OpenRC 1:10 4WD Touring Concept RC Car by barspin May 2, 2013

Featured Thing!

Description

This i were it started, here´s my first go at creating a printable rc car which later resulted in the OpenRC Truggy car.

I learned alot from this car and so it´s a little bit different. It´s has belt drive and is built on a aluminum plate so it´s not as "printable" as it´s successor (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:42198).

If you like build one of your own, the belts are from an Xray car (don´t remember the model) and bought at Amainhobbies.com, driveshafts are from Conrad.com.

If somebody would like to build one let me know and i will post some more info!

Here´s a short testdrive video: youtu.be/HpFrq0iMeAE

As always questions and answers to be found here: plus.google.com/u/0/communities/112745535856143176146

Enjoy!

Thank´s alot for the comment! Your car was a great inspiration when designing this car, i´ve watched those videos many times! Love that car! =)

I did start building your car but failed on sourcing some of the parts so i never finished it.

Cool design - I especially like the printed gearbox! Did you know about my built before? If not, check it out! :)

Great design, two thumbs up!

Would love to print one of these but don't know what to do with the file I downloaded

barspin on May 7, 2013 said:

That file is a STEP file which contains all the part in a assembled mode. You need to convert these parts inte separate STL´s. I normally do this but i had no time and are focusing on the successor of this car right now: http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...
I would recommend that if you want to print your own car, choose that one instead as there is alot more "support" on it, both by me and the community.

Good Luck

Thank you for the picture of the "box". It made me feel better about my failures on the way to pure 3d joy. Beautiful build by the way!

The exposed HBP wires do make me a bit concerned about accidental short circuits with tools and other metal bits around the build platform. I melted the original plastic part on my TOM and replaced with a higher melting point one.

barspin on May 3, 2013 said:

Thanks!

About the wires i simply got tired of the connctor getting burned all the time so i just soldered them on there!
Nowadays my TOM lives a better life at my dads.
