My skatepark, along with most, has a very soft ground. My goal is to power slide across the whole park with these....

Is Colorfabb XT-CF20 filament enough good? Is anybody done that?

I wonder if it would print well in nylon? It should be much tougher.

have you tried to wrap it with duct tape? do them last longer?

how much do you weigh? this is a good stress test and it would be interesting to calc the approx amount of pressure these wheels took.

How was the friction compared to metal bearings? I am sure they weren't as smooth, but how much worse were they?

Dude, that's amazing! I'm seriously impressed that the outer perimeters disintegrated before the gears were destroyed. Thanks for sharing.
