2017-04-21 added 2 rims & 1 tire for the wider rear 2017 wheel

Anyone interested in the work of Daniel Noreé has probably not missed the fact that he has released - OpenR/C Formula 1. The F1 car can be printed in PLA and is designed so that everybody will be able to print and build it without any hassle. Even a ball bearing kit is now available http://www.fasteddybearings.com/openrc-f1-sealed-bearing-kit/ for the car :- )

I created some rain tires for the original rims but I also designed these low profile rim/tires just for fun. The low profile tires feature a new snap-on design that will secure the tire using a triangular shape that´s interconnecting the parts. Also the tires are not sealed with this design, making them a bit softer since the air is not trapped inside (but I also included a solid version).

This snap-on design is also available for tires/rims that can be used with the OpenR/C Touring Car or similar RC cars naturally.

Download the Touring rims here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1001223 and the tires here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1001233


Please also check out my unuiqe UV-stable, flexible and conductive filament called ETPU 95-250 Carbon Black 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.
•It´s not too stretchy and will do great for timing belts etc.

Tires look great. Do you know if these rims can be used in combination with this diff https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2361718 ?

Differential for OpenRC F1 car.

thanks :-) sorry I dont know but I would think so. If you try it please let others know here, thanks!

Ok, i will give it a try and let you know.

I did give it a try but it won't fit.
The diff https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2361718 only works with the spoke layout of the original rims.
The diff uses, for the rights rear side, a front wheel.
There is a part of the diff that slots in between the spokes.
Your spokes have a different layout.

Differential for OpenRC F1 car.

It fits. And the is still working. Thanks a lot. It even does not spoil your great design.

All rim version are now available here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2716222 let me know if I should remove your pic/link

Palmiga OpenRC F1 Low Profile Differential Rims
by Palmiga

cool, thanks :-)

I will give it a try, and let you know

What are recommended print settings for these? Great work!

Thanks :-) the rims can be printed with PLA and standard settings. The tires are depending on the type of flexible filament u use. Some general info ( for my a bit too hard TPU when it comes to these particular tires): http://rubber3dprinting.com/how-to-3d-print-flexible/

Is there any way that you can modify these to a 12mm hex? I printed out the snow tires to put on a traxxas teton for a trip to the beach and then saw that the wheels don't have the 12mm hex. Hope you can help, OH and I have a set of your sand tire/wheels on my JLB Cheetah with the 17mm wheel adapter. Going to the beach in October and can't wait to see how they do. Thanks again for your designs.

I will add it to the wish-list but then you need to give me more info about dimensions, diameter of axle, thickness of the 12mm hex etc. contact me through http://palmiga.com/ http://rubber3dprinting.com/

Would it be easier to make snow tires for the "Touring" rims? Because the Touring rim fits great and I already have them printed. If it would be easier to make new wheels for the F1 snow tires then the same spacing and such as the touring will work great. Thanks again.

enjoy https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2512132 please share pics of your prints
