what kind of screw are these?

If you are printing the wheels with the rollers already in place, why are you using brass tubes to hold them together? Why not print print the whole thing? I do have a 3D printer (like most people on thingiverse I would think) so I know their limitations.

I think I might print a couple for my rolling backpack. Anyone know if it's MakerBottable?

I am not so sure about this one. There are a few mecanum wheels on this site that look possible.


I think it might need tires to work properly though.
How about heat shrink tubing? (If the thickening of the tube at the narrow ends of the rollers is a problem, they could just be narrowed a bit more)

I had coated a wheel in the Liquid Tape used for electronics. That was a huge improvement. I just never left it on because I decided to dye the rollers.
