Turn your child's scooter into a snow scooter.


Print for each scooter :-
Shoe x 2 (with support and course layer height)
Bushes x 4 (Suggest high infill for strength)

If you need to scale the model to suit your print bed or scooter, then Use the openSCAD file Bush.scad to generate yourself a custom bush.

Replace the front and rear scooter wheels with these shoes.
Be warned, these are large prints (230mm) at full size.

what infill percentage do you recommend


mine was 1234 ;-)

Thank you both for liking ;)

Congratulations! Your model has been featured as one of the Top 3D Printed Christmas / Holiday Models this year. Search "Top Free 3D Printed Christmas Gift 2015 Printing Ninja" to see. (sorry thingiverse bans url addresses)

is it hard to make

i made 1 with a real ski months before u. mine works in deep powder! heres a link: http://ikesinnovations.weebly.com/categories.html

What size would be ideal for a razor scooter?

I don't know the exact details of the scooter model you have but you can use the OpenSCAD file attached to create your own intermediate bush file to print off.

So the bush is the only thing i would have to scale for the axle of the scooter?

Please check the drawing supplied for a bush printed at full scale. If you need to create a custom bush for your axle, or you had to print the whole shoe at a different scale (e.g, maybe your print bed is too small) then you can create yourself a new bush using the OpenSCAD file supplied.

What 3D printer do you use?

I printed this on a customised Makerbot Replicator 2. The bushings that Gyrobot did weren't quite right for my son's scooter so I knocked some up in Tinkercad to fit.

Great! I use tinkercad

does it work on a Razor scooter?

Congrats! I thought you model was one of the best choices for a 3D Printed Christmas gift! I made a link from here: http://3dprintingninja.blogspot.com/2014/12/top-20-free-3d-printed-christmas-gifts.html

great for a Christmas present!

This is neat!
I live in Canada and, due to the numerous snow falls, I'm wondering if this would work as well on flat surfaces. Have you tried?

It will be helpfull if you orientate the first layer direction angle to be in the line of travel.

I would suggest filling, sanding and waxing the undersides if you want to use it on the flat to minimise drag.

Childs scooter? How about "MY Scooter" I will try and remix for the adult (Stunt) Scooter..

Information personalised just for you : -)

Gyrobot says : "Turn Daniel Phelps' personal scooter into a snow scooter."

Now you can proceed at great speed, go forth and re-mix!

AWESOME idea !!!

Pls send me a PM if it is remixed for Adults !

Why not just scale it yourself?

This can be used for adults too. Its a matter of scaling to suit your ride.

It will probably take like 7 hours to print.

How long to print a shoe?

For me about 5 hours per shoe at 0.4mm layer height, it doesn't have to be a fine resolution.

So cool, I wish it snowed here :(

It snowed were we live.
: - P

This is awesome I wish I had a 3D printer when I still rode those... I might just have to try it again.

hi does it work on razor big wheel scooters or just small???

I thought of designing and printing some snow skates this year, but this is infinitely cooler! thanks for sharing!

100% fill ABS needed ?

I would go for high infill for the bushes, but the shoes, I would print relatively low but with a few extra perimeters, YMMV.

Cannot download this fast enough.
Need to mod for our full suspension Royce Union scooter.... hmmm tasty full suspension skis cooter


I sliced it with Makerbot without errors

Is there are reason why I can't slice it with Slic3r?
It is an error message when I try to slice it.
Could you please advice...

Hi, I have had problems with Slic3r (through Repetier) when the model is too large, even though it appears to fit on the build plate it quickly returns an error. I have never really looked into this error too much as my usual answer is to slice with CraftWare

Slic3r demands a 10% (or something like that) buffer around the print bed for whatever reason. I often get rejected at 480mm on a 500mm bed. It's lame but there. We adjusted the printer profile to exceed actual and then moved the X/Y home location to match the real world location. It's a work around but it works if you need full bed.
