My robot tank tracks with a traction upgrade!


The trouble with printed tracks are that they are made of a hard plastic that can be quite slippery on hardwood or tile floors. My solution was to use cheap drawer liner.


There are two ways to apply this upgrade. Either glue individual rectangles of the liner to each track as i did, or glue on one big long strip. Using one long strip will increase the durability, however i liked the look of the individual rectangles better :).
