As if you can read my mind ;) I am currently working on my little bot and it needs much smaller wheels. Let's see how I can integrate these.

Always nice to hear that you are going to print one of my designs; don't forget to upload some photo's of your finished robot!

I was in need for some smaller Mecanum wheels for a Lego Mindstorms Wheel Chair design. The nice thing about OpenSCAD is that I could quite easily change the other Mecanum wheel design into this smaller design. Only drawback of this design is that the Lego axles had to be replaced by nails as axles.

I have to admit, I tried to alter your stl files of the bigger wheels and gave up on it :D Probably it will take a looooong while till I'm finished with the bot, so many things to add.

Well I guess nails will do just fine. Hope that the wheels fit the bot.
