So for those who are interested, this is my first trial at the Google Skethup model Seth S found.

Let me just say it was a pain to get that over into inventor, and in the end i cannot edit it but i can add on to it. So i think this is a good base. I plan to build a chassis with wheels printed out of rubber and hopefully leaf springs out of rubber so it will bounce.

What do you guys think? Any ideas or requests i could work on?

Hey, that's not bad.. haven't fired up my 3D printer in quite awhile, so need to relearn, recalibrate, etc... I need to fab up a bracket for a washer tank for my '90 FJ62. Looks good to me. If/when you get it finished up, I'd be happy to donate some beer money for a print? and maybe the STL also? Looks like it might end up being a pretty long print. What materials, infill, specs, etc do you think you'll end up using? Nice work..

It was about 6 days. That was with a .2mm layer height and 35% infill with 5 outer layers. It took roughly a whole kilogram of filament and is about 6.25 inches wide and 13 or 14 inches long. I would be happy to print one out for you, currently its a very basic model but i will slowly be adding more to it as time goes on.

Hey all, sorry for radio silence. I recently graduated grad school and got a job so with relocating and starting my new job things have been just crazy. I currently don't have a 3D printer, so until I can get my hands on one I am stuck where I am at.

I do need to go back and do some redesigning of my print. I let my nephew play with the prototype and turns out there are a few weak points that need to be sorted out.

Once I get back into this ill post some updates and try to start getting to a place where I can sell them.

I ended up in the Shenandoah Valley, I also started working for a company that manufactures paint. Which I have been told they used to give employees free paint every year but stopped it about 10 years ago. Which sucks, but ive been told if I could get the lab to color match the paint on my cruiser so I can get a paint shop to get the exact paint color for touchups which is cool.

Nice, my family owned an ancient house in waynesboro up until a few years ago.
I'm not too far from the valley, it's easily the most beautiful part of Virginia
