Hello, This is a nice model. I am having an issue printing the tires. This is one of my first prints so please go easy on me. All other parts print fine. When i print the tires all i get is a circle of 5 layers thick. I am using Slic3r. i see the circles in the preview screen. I have adjusted the infill and some other settings but no change. i have reset all my settings now. Any thoughts are appreciated. thanks.

Hey there, great model! I was wondering if you could share the CAD file for the tires? I am trying to make the axle opening a little larger so I don't have to drill them out. The geometry is making it very difficult to convert to a workable model in Inventor!

I designed a pair of long forks to go along with the loader, turned out way better than I was expecting! :)

Sure no problem, just send me your email on PM. But I gota tell you, the original files for this thing are in sketchup, and are very low poly (just like the .stl) I don't think they will be much help on inventor. Greetings, thank for your kind comments, looks great with the long forks.

Nice model, i printed it at normal and then big scale. Keep up the good work!

Wao looks awesome! thanks for sharing

I made it and scale it up to 1.3
Just great for my 3 years old son.


It looks awesome!!! Really great pic, I am so glad thanks for sharing

What size of screws did you use to put this together?

1mm día, 5 mm in length. I got them from a watch repair set, on the excavator model are some pictures. Greetings

Looking forward to seeing what other machines you can come up with. (I'd like to see one of the large mine dump trucks; such as a Volvo BM 940)

It's now on my to do list, I wanna have like the generic models of the machines used on a mine. Greetings

Look forward to that. :)


It might just be me, but I do believe you have a part missing.

You were right, it have been fix now. Thanks for noticing, the missing part was the front body. Greetings

Interesting , appreciate ur share .

Thanks, your comments are very welcome, I hope you can print the model. Greetings
