What 3D printer are you using for your prints? The quality of them are amazing!

Those are printed on a MakerBot Replicator 2X

I have that printer at my school and it's print quality is crap compared to the quality of your prints.

would flexion filament work for the spring?

your job is wonderful.
the chassis is the best part.
good luck!

PETG will also be flexible enough.

hi barspin,
what specific nylon filament did you use? i'm looking at taulman nylon filaments and there's a variety of choices. Does it matter which nylon is used, or will it work equally well with all types?

What material do you print these in? PLA? ABS? Nylon? Something Else?

All parts are printed in Nylon.

Can the be used on off road truggys and dose it have different size and stiffness?

Wasn't sure how to affix the bottom end of the shock to the rest of the shock assembly. E.g., did you use an adhesive or did you drill it out? I made a q&d edit with a 2mm dia x 3mm hole to receive the 50mm screw.

Cool, but these are more like springs than shocks. The main purpose of a shock is to provide dampening...

As an engineer, I will agree with you about the difference between springs/shocks - but the screw that goes through the middle, if it's a snug fit, should provide the damping on this spring. BTW; dampening is making something more damp, springs require damping to be a shock absorber... just for future reference.

Just curious, how durable are they? I would think that they would be lighter than regular shocks and if they can hold up even for a couple races they would be worth it to someone racing. The whole car is awesome!

Nice work! Keep it coming....
