A VW Bus that I printed for my company's annual pinewood derby fundraiser.

'The Bus' is sized to fit over the block of wood that comes in the pinewood derby kit. It also uses the wheels provided in the kit.

You can also print out you own wheels and use a block of scrap wood to complete 'The Bus'.


1)Print front and back of bus.
2)Cut pinewood derby block so it fits into space inside bus body.
3)attach wheels.
4)Race, fueled by gravity and Hippie Power.

Why are most of the Window Frames missing on the Winshield of most of the Makes ???

I would print this on a Makerbot in a hackerspace, which mean I would have to pay by the minute. I would love to make this, but I don't know if I can afford it. How long will it take to print everything out?


hi! i need your help! can you plese email me

How did it print the window frames with nothing under them?

it didn't seem to cause a problem when printing. In my experience as long as the bridging surface is flat in the Z dimension and well supported at each end, the makerbot wont have an issue.

very nice bus skimbal - thanks for sharing
I am near KC in Eudora . . .

my bro wants one of these printed for Christmas now :D
