this is my first attempt at a 3D printable object. It's based on a design (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:9710#) I saw at my friend's house. It is a single print that has moving parts. This has now been updated to have much better tolerances between the wheel and the wheel-well. Enjoy :D


Note: I've uploaded a new file that should fix the issue that slic3r was having (resulting in only half the car printing) also, smoothed for better wheel rotation. VRRROOOM!

I printed this to be about 4 inches long on the longest side, at that scale the tolerance around the wheels work great! You could probably print it smaller (as long as your printer is well calibrated) or bigger and it would be fine.

I uploaded a new file: toycar_smoothed.stl that should fix the "half-print" issue. thanks for the feedback :)

My kids love that dump truck! This is a nice direction to make a derivative! Looks nice!

Very cool. And if this is a derivative of the dump truck, you should mark it as such. 8-)

Sounds good to me, just checking!

is it a derivative if I designed it from scratch and didn't actually use the original file in any way? I have no problem marking it as such, just not sure of the etiquette for that sort of Thing ;)

It's not a deritive. The dump truck requires support to work, this manages it without. It's brilliant.

FYI - there are two different versions of the toy dump truck: one that does not require support (thing 9710) that does (thing 9965).
