What Happens When 3D Printing Meets Small Scale RC Models
An easy and useful way of adjusting the height of the body at the front of your Kyosho Mini-Z RC model is to control the position of the front body mount. By adding a spacer under the front body mount you can lower the front of the car’s body to make it more aerodynamic and stable on the track. So we have designed an easy to use spacers to go under the front body mount to help you adjust the body height at the front of the card in a more easy and straightforward way without having to rely on shims. The 3D printable front body holder spacers are available in two different heights, to make it easy for you to adjust the height more precisely – 0.5 mm and 1 mm. Make sure you 3D print them using finer layer height such as 0.1 mm for best results.
A set of 3D printable spacers for the front knuckles of the Kyosho Mini-Z MR-02 and MR-03 RC models. These are used for regulating the height of the front suspension as well as limiting the maximum travel of the car’s wheels. We have the spacers available in three different sizes in order to help you get finer tuning ability, so here are spacers height 0.5 mm, 1 mm and 1.5 mm. You can also combine multiple spacers to get the desired height adjustment. Make sure you use finer resolution for printing these out as they are quite small and need to be precise, we have used 0.1 mm layer height for a great result. Also you might need to lower the extrusion speed a bit while 3D printing the part for best results.
We have broken the front body holder of a Ferrari 430GT body for Mini-Z MR-03 model, so we had to either find a new replacement or make one ourselves. So here is a replacement 3D printable front body mount for the Ferrari 430GT body for Kyosho Mini-Z RC models. You can print and use this replacement if your stock front body mount breaks like in our case and you cannot find an original replacement or don’t want to wait for such to arrive. The body holder should be a perfect fit and provide enough strength and durability, just like the original. We recommend to use 0.1mm layer height for best results and the use of support structure as some part of the body mount is in the air and it will not be useable if don’t use supports.
