3D Printed RC Car

3D Printed RC Car

Creating a high quality graduation project.

With the help of 3D printers like ZMorph all makers and design enthusiasts can easily bring into life their most ambitious ideas.

Jakub Ratajczyk

Challenge

3D printing is a great tool in work, but also for having fun. For his graduation project Jakub Ratajczyk decided to build a 3D printed RC (radio controlled) racing car which would fully present his knowledge and experience in robotics, programming, electronics & 3D printing. In order to manufacture his very sophisticated design, Jakub used ZMorph multitool 3D printer.

Solution

The body of the car was printed in six parts using ZMorph's 1.75 mm Plastic Extruder with layer height set to 0.15 mm. Jakub then glued the parts together with a highly binding glue to make them even more durable. ZMorph’s abilities allowed him to print a lot of moving parts of car’s construction too as well as the tires thanks to using a more flexible filament.

Result

With the body of the car manufactured from the ABS filament, it was possible to sand and paint it with a black protective varnish for gloss and conservation. Great looks is not the only advantage of this car. After adding the electronics it proved to be very agile and with a great feedback on turns. ZMorph’s 3D printing machine proved to be very useful tool for completing this academic project.
