FTC Robocracy is proud to release our very own, competition tested swerve drive model to the public. It is designed to be made from exclusively 3d printed parts and COTS components, with no CNC machinery required.
We provide here, everything you need to make your very own PRINT Swerve. This innovative swerve drive is entirely build out of 3D printed parts, and other COTS components. It uses high quality gears for unprecedented reliability. We use a novel “Tower” design where the drive motor is directly mounted on top of the drive to deliver the compact footprint needed for FTC robots. To our knowledge, this is the first 3D printable, nearly-indestructible integrated swerve drive, optimized for FTC use.

UPDATE: The Flanged 1/2" thunderhex bearings have been intermittently out of stock. You can instead use the equivalent radial bearings (1/2" thunderhex radial bearings) with the Tube Body Radial Bearings.stl part.
To do so, use Tube Body Radial Bearings.stl instead of _Tube Body.stl
UPDATE 2: After hearing from some users that the models were weirdly scaled, We updated them in order to be more properly scaled, when being imported into the slicer
The majority of the module can be printed in any material. However, it is recommended to print either PETG or Polycarbonate (PC) for full strength. In particular TopSwervePulley.stl should be printed in PC if available.
