What Happens When 3D Printing Meets Small Scale RC Models
Just a quick try to make usable 3D printed wheels for Kyosho Mini-Z RC car, these are for MR-02 or MR-03 models, will not fit on AWD. Standard wheels with 0 offset, front and rear wheel. Do note this is a work in progress as it needs a little bit of fine tuning on the inside where you place plastic bushings or bearings. You need to print with finer resolution such as 0.1mm for best results and use support material for the inside to print well.
This is a work in progress project, a 3D printable front body guard for the Audi R8 LMS body for Kyosho Mini-Z RC cars. You mount it on the chassis and it extends under the front of the Audi body to increase strength on impact when racing with the RC car. This is a quick and rough design intended for testing it out, if it works out well in protecting the body we are going to refine the design further. You are welcome to try the body guard yourself and report how it works for you.
A set of 3D printable H-plates for the Kyosho Mini-Z MR-02/MR-015 RC cars for MM and RM chassis types. These are not compatible with the newer MR-03 as the design of the T-plates used there is different. The H-Plates provided are with 1mm height and different width – 8mm, 9mm and 10mm to get different stiffness of the plate. Furthermore you can vary the stiffness you get with the percentage of the infill you are using until you get the desired results. As usual if you print and use these plates please share your feedback what works best for you in terms of height and what infill percentage you are using to get best results on your Kyosho Mini-Z model.
