I figured I'd show you guys this. I didn't know where to place it. Then I thought I'm using it for a Thingy project. 

It's something I did up in CAD and printed out on my Brothers Zortax M300 in ABS.

I made the chassis to accept a FK or 16D motors

I mocked it up with parts on the bench so I could snap a few pictures.

 

I'll explain it in more detail as I build it and some of it's features. I know it's going to be wearing a Gene's World Realm body.

Very cool.

 

I was wondering when someone was going to do a bolt-together concept that had the Dynamic vintage look.

 

About 4-5 years ago, I ran the idea by Steve Grider, who made the 3D buck, for my F1 body, but I wanted to have it done in metal, and thought it would be cost prohibitive. ($30 minimum, for the back piece?)

 

I was going to skip the 16D, and just have one for FK motors.

Mike, It's around a hour and half print time for the back chassis and the front out rigger and that is a solid print with no webbing for in fill.

 

 

I want one. :pardon:

 

Sam, :laugh2:  Let's see if it works first, Then we will talk. By the way if you need drop arms let me know PM me with your needs.

A motor is only as fast as the chassis it's in.

Sam,

I know about Dennis David's new forum,I'll have things to show there soon enough. This Chassis even though made with new technology is still Vintage in my mind.

 

 

Jairus,

I would think it could make a good Detroit Slider, We'll find out soon enough  :D

Ken,

 

I agree. It is true " Vintage Style ". Looking forward to seeing this build. :popcorm1:

Printing in metal is an expensive and slow process (in my experience)

 

IF I remember correctly the Dynamic parts were Injection molded which requires metal dies (negatives) and is only economical in volumes we won't see again.

 

My suggestion is to make a form out of plastic and a mold out of sand (negative) and cast the part in aluminum. Bearing/axle holes, and screw holes would have to be machined afterward.

 

my 2 pence worth.

Care to share the files? I would like to see how the 3D printer I have does with it.

 

Slot car racing needs scratch built with a screw driver back again. Or perhaps scratch built with  a 3D printer?

Superb and about time!! For the longest time I've wondered when someone would print the Dynamic stuff :D

Had a mind to have a go myself if I ever got a 3D printer.

We'll to give you little bit of a look at what comes out of the printer.

raft.jpg

 

first off I'm going to set the wheel base the body I'm using needs 4''.Cut on the red line.

cut on the redline.jpg

 

All cut.

all cut.jpg

 

I just came to the conclusion that i'm going to need a 4-40 nut added into front wheel support. oh well that's what prototyping is for, I'll print another.

add nut.jpg

 

all set new front wheel support printed with nut re cease added

reprint with nut.jpg

 

Open up the holes to 3/16 for bushings

open holes up.jpg

 

Now squaring it up to Zap a Gap the bushings in.

square it up.jpg

 

All Zapped in and Squared up.

Next time I'll add the motor. What do you think FK or 16d ?

IIRC the Champion 707 arms were wound with #27 & #28 wire.
