As a kid I LOVED Mister Roger's trolley, so here is a trolley I designed based on that one. I hope it takes you to the land of Makerbotbelieve.


Updated 6/20/12: Trolley6.stl Is cleaned up a little and should print better on more finicky machines.

  1. Download and print Trolly6.stl. All parts are printed together in this file. (You can download and print the parts individually if you prefer.)
  2. Insert the split rod first into the base, "wheels" down. It should be a snug fit and you may have to squeeze the split part of the rod together.
  3. Slide the body over the rod. This should be a looser fit. Be very gentle with the poles that stick up - they are very fragile when printed at this tiny scale.
  4. Slip the top roof onto the center rod. It will be snug. Again, be careful with the poles.
  5. Squeeze it all tight.
  6. Play! Where does your trolley take you?

This trolley is best printed in red. (I'd love to see it if you do.) I've attached the Sketchup file incase someone wants to edit it to give it truer colors on a machine that can print two colors at once. Ideally, the colors would be:

Roof: red with yellow sign strips
Body: red with green seats (with yellow seat sides, yikes!)
Base: black

This is going to go over very big with a 2 1/2 year old and the "new" Mr Rodgers (Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood) thats on TV now.. (the new show is a cartoon based on the old tv show.. where the puppets grew up and had kids of their own)

Do you ever think that you might sale these? If for the right price?

Sure! Just wish I had some red filament.

Fantastic! I agree that it looks great in red.

Maybe someone with more patience than me will print it in red and then paint the signs and seats with colored nail polish.

thanks for creating this. :)

Forgot to mention, printed a version that I scaled up 1.5 in ReplicatorG.

Awesome! I'd love to see a picture! Did it scale well, I hope? There should be enough detail that it would.

Where was this 30 years ago??? :)

Thank you for making and posting this... I will be printing one as soon as my Replicator arrives!
