I wanted to try to 3D print a small skateboard that was usable and strong. This is what I came up with, it is just slightly bigger then a penny board, at 23" (58.5cm) in length. A $15 plastic skateboard was used as a donor for the wheels and trucks. Has angled aluminum running through the inside as supports, as well as 6 pins that hold the joint together. I'm about 170lbs (77kg) and it has supported my weight fine so far. The axles are 17'' apart, which means for its small size it is very easy to ride.

*Will add STLs for smaller printers soon...
Update: added STL for printing as a single piece flat on a build plate.
Recommend using a generous brim!
Recommend printing in ABS with an enclosure if possible! PETG may also work
55% infill indicated about 1 kg of filament while slicing, but there was about 20% of the roll left so you should be able to increase the fill amount slightly.
Recommend using acetone welding to connect the two pieces and the pins (epoxy if printed in different materials).
*Note the tighter the pins are the stronger the connection will be, so start by printing the single pin at scale and see if the size should be adjusted +/- 1 or 2 percent for tight tolerance.
