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

Featured Thing!


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: http://youtu.be/HpFrq0iMeAE

did you use ABS filament or PLA filament?

When my car has full batteries, it can go twice as fast!

Please take some information about motor, servo, belt that you use. Thanks in advance!

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

Where do we check it out?

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.

Great design, two thumbs up!

Could you post some more info?

Really great work here!


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

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/thing:42198http://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

or the brake.

ha ha. use the steering!

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.


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.

What's a TOM?


Amazing! You're the 3D printing king! :)

omg that is sick.
