Anyone interested in the work of Daniel Noreé has probably not missed the fact that he soon will release the files for his latest project - OpenR/C Formula 1. The F1 car can be printed in PLA and is designed so that everybody will be able to print and build it without any hassle. Even a ball bearing kit is now available http://www.fasteddybearings.com/openrc-f1-sealed-bearing-kit/ for the car :- )

I happen to know that Daniel is extremely close to a release of the awesome F1 car and I obviously had to create some tires for that project. So if you plan to print the F1-car when it´s released here is the possibility to be prepared with some new tires in the pit stop already now.
I created some rain tires for the original rims but I also designed a set of low profile rim/tires just for fun. The low profile tires feature a new snap-on design that will secure the tire using a triangular shape that´s interconnecting the parts. Also the tires are not sealed with this design, making them a bit softer since the air is not trapped inside.

This snap-on design is also available for tires/rims that can be used with the OpenR/C Touring Car or similar RC cars naturally.

Please also check out my unuiqe UV-stable, flexible and conductive filament called ETPU 95-250 Carbon Black filament.

Don´t need the conductivity? Well the conductivity is great for some things but perhaps not your first choice? Then consider this:

This filament will give you some really nice benefits if the conductivity is not an disadvantage for your 3D printed design:

•The material composition eliminates “stringing / webbing” issues.
•The hardness of 95 shore A and the carbon black filler makes for great print abilities.
•The carbon black filler is an excellent UV stabilizer thus the prints are built to last in very harsh environments.
•The matte black surface finish has a very exclusive look.
•The material feels very nice and dry to touch.
•It´s not too stretchy and will do great for timing belts etc.

How is the grip, and overall softness of the tire (in terms as cushioning bumps) between your filament (PI-ETPU 95-250 Carbon Black) with a shore hardness of 95A and that of what Daniel recommends printing the tires out of ( Ninjaflex) with a shore hardness of 85A?

I would say none of them have a very good grip compared to molded standard tires from the store. 85 Shore A is definitely softer than 95, thus the tire is softer. Ninjaflex is glossy and ETPU 95-250 has a matte surface (I think it looks more like the real thing) and easier to print (if your printer is not optimized for soft materials that is) and its UV-stable (but that is no issue for ware-parts like tires right). The conclusion is that they both have pros & cons and its up to everyone to decide what is best for them. KR Thomas

Is there a way you could upload some step files for ur tires?

Great I am looking forward to them

Daniel uplouded the open Rc F1 car 2017 style rear tyres, so I was wondering if you could make some 2017 style rain tires.
greatings from the netherlands.

Hi Staker, sure it´s on my to-do list but I do not know when it will be ready.

What print settings should we use for TPU filaments?

Is there a printable wheel that fits these tires?
