NOTE: This is a concept model used for testing and a show model. Never ever use these as a replacement for the real thing! If you decide to try them out, be careful and use proper safety gear. Use at own risk.

This was a weekend project i did for fun and to get my mind of some other projects for a while.

I have printed both the Base and hanger aswell as the bushings. The skaterboard is a cheap one that i took the measurements form and used the existing screws, nuts and washers. There´s also a 195mm long M8 threaded rod that all the way thru that holds the wheel and basically the entire design is highly dependet on this rod. I have tried to take a differnt approach in regards of the orientation but you can print it anyway you like using support.
This one is printed in thick layers of Carbon Fiber infused Nylon with settings optimised for a strong print. Even though the CF will stabilize the "hanger" to a certain degree. Exposed to a high impact the Nylon will flex and the steel rod will most likely bend.

Full story available on my Patreon page.

Anyway great fun as a concept model project.

I am thinking about making a set or 2 of these, and throwing the kickbike ski's on them https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:585313 then I can put them under a cart or pallet, and have a nice ski cart/platform for anything from hunting to ice fishing, and other fun winter activities.

This should be sent to Braile Skateboard on YouTube for their you build it, we skate it segment.

I´ll try to get around to do that! =)

Nice work Daniel, thanks for sharing! Now I just need to union this with my motor mount designs to have a fully 3D printed electric longboard trucks

Never wax a ledge again!

it would be great if you joined the skateboard group and added it to their list of things.

Also consider heat treating the axle - I find the regular threaded rod is not hard enough and bends after only a short time. I mean red heat and quench in oil.


I gotta see a video of these in action.

Was it printed at 100% infill?
