Traxxas E-Revo 1:16 slicks
EDIT: I made a blog post about this. you can find it here: http://blog.octomy.org/2017/07/creality-cr10-cura-settings.html
Original design: Lennart Rolland.
For project: OctoMY™ (http://octomy.org).
Description: This is the first of a series of experimental designs for 3D printed wheels for Traxxas E-Revo 1:16 RC car. It is designed to be easily adaptible to other RC cars.
Please note: This is a prototype design that has already been superseeded by better ideas.
- It fit the wheel mount of the car on first try!
- The low mass made it really accellerate fast.
- The slick design was fun to drive.
- The spokes worked really well.
- The outer wall thickness ("tire surface") was too thin and running over gravel poked holes in it on the first run.
- The hex part of the mounting hole was to shallow. Will add more depth in the next iteration
- The thickness of the wall in the hex part of the mounting hole felt too thin, and will be increased by 2mm in the next iteration
Overal: Albeit the obvious room for improvement I am still quite happy with the result!
