This is a rubber band car for a school engineering project. The 3D files will require further machining in order to get the car running.

materials:

  • 3D printer
  • filament
  • Lego axles, gears, stops, and holes
  • hot glue
  • drill
  • Dremel

This is really cool. I love how you combined legos with 3D printed parts. You could even probably make the lego pattern on the 3D printed parts so that you can attach legos to the outside too.
