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.
