Toy car with wheels that move, but requires no assembly. Here is a short video:


The wheels took some effort to loosen up after printing, but they now roll quite nicely on the right surface.

Other problems:

There is definitely some warping from the plastic cooling/shrinking (I used ABS).

The transition from the wheel to the axle is a bit steep for the makerbot.

Hey Karl,
I really like this serendipitous discovery/innovation. Can I have your e-mail address so we could discuss it. It's such a good example of the things we're finding out by having a large group of people trying it. :)

Thanks for the positive feedback! You can contact me at [email protected] or on twitter (@kparanya). I'd love to chat about this stuff.


Circumnavigating the lack of support material with captive solids-- brilliant!

This is brilliant! I think you gave me an idea, there (-:
