The original chassis with the friction motor on it – and this is my first draft just to get the wheels and the fixings in the right place now. In the meantime, somebody sent me a link, uh i’m, not sure if it’s on twitter or there must be instagram on a different subject. But if we look at it on the screen here, sorry wait it out the gamma 1.8, an improved print in place, rc chassis. I under under engineered with a link to the thingyverse, so you can download all the files. I must say it looks brilliant it’s, not what i had in mind. But, having looked at it, i downloaded the files. I will show you in a minute what i did to actually convert it. Sorry about my squeaky chair to convert it to the right size to go on my pan land car. Now i still need to make a few changes to it. Um the most obvious changes. I’Ve made to at the moment is i’ve added these pillars at the front and back so it does actually fit straight on so there we go um. I haven’t done anything yet with this: to release it because being a print in place, everything’s all printed in one go and there’ll be little bits of filament holding it together that you need to break so that the steering works and the gearbox and all and the Back axle will actually spin. He does suggest you put a four millimeter metal bar through the axle because at the moment, it’s a filament tube, which won’t survive for very long.
A few issues with what i did um and a few bits haven’t come out perfectly for what i want. I can’t do it one hand there we go, but on the face of it, it fits um, stick a motor in there, the gear on it, it’ll link up with that gear. Uh it’s plenty of space there for the rc gear. I need to manipulate this. A little bit and it’ll all start moving if i’m lucky because i’ve printed it with pla, which is probably the most brittle option possible, it will probably all fail, but before we worry about it, failing there’s a few things i didn’t think about. When i printed it, i didn’t check what size tires go on these wheels. I mean he mentions it in his right up, but i didn’t even think about measuring them, but that gap there is only where are we 28 millimeters and the wheels that this is expecting to run on are 29 and a half, probably 30., so they’re gon na Be a little bit smaller and, on this scale, being a little bit smaller, does make quit quite a difference. So what i might do, i assume i’m gon na have to reprint. This anyway is. I might actually open this out a little bit at the back here. So there’s space for a bigger tire, bigger wheel, bigger tire uh. He based this on the uh tamiya, obviously says instructions, something like the two five eight eight or something i i can’t remember: you’ll have to there’ll be links in the video description, but on the face of it, this is a quick and easy modification.
I’Ll show you, the video i’ve done the screen capture of me modifying his body, shell chassis. Basically, i cut it in half and stretched it all on tinkercad. So this is a. I still intend to do what i plan to do to begin with. So this is a bit of a side track and if it works, that’ll be handy. I’Ll just show you that i have worked on it and it is all running freely now, so the back axle came quite nicely came free quite nicely. The front steering i’ve had to be very gentle with, and work on, but it’s certainly moving it’s loosening up the more i do it that’s the thing. With these print in place, um designs, they, i just can’t, believe how clever they are they’re designed to have just the tiniest little bit of connection between them, so they can print. And then you have to break that connection by maneuvering it. It all comes free same with the wheels because i don’t have any tyres to go on it any suitable ones. What i think i’ll do is i’ll print some out of pla, so they’ll be um hard. They won’t be grippy at all, but at least i should be able to put them on there, so we can see what it should look like. I must say i really had doubts as to whether i’ll be able to get that apart, but it’s. All there i’m fascinated by it: Music Music, do Music, Music right, Music, so Music, so Music, Music do Music, Music, Music, oh Music, Music, Music, Music, Music! Oh thanks for watching.
