DIY Aluminum Investment Casting Using a 3d Printer.
One of the best instructables I've seen in a while. Great job and I really appreciate the amount of details your work.
Hi,I used ABS, PLA would be too brittle for this application even if it might be stiffer. Since the parts will be carrying a high load, it is recommended to print with 90% infill or higher.
Glad you liked it! It is possible to modify the mount via the uploaded Fusion360 file, it requires some work. Good thing is, timing belts are only a couple of dollars so it's actually less labour intensive to get another belt of suitable length.
Hey AsdOmega,the code is still undergoing some debugging and testing! We will be updating this instructable in the coming month.

Nice design again gzumwalt!
And you know what else, I checked out your Thingiverse account and I've seen and liked your older designs before such as the moving man and moving feline. And now I see you here again commenting on your good work. Your online social presence is strong!
Thank you for your kind words :)
Thanks. I can't recommend any specific ESCs here because I do not have much riding experiance with them. RC ESCs were mostly built for RC cars so there might be some limitations. I would recommend the forum http://www.electric-skateboard.builders to look for reports from people who have actually used RC ESCs. Good luck.
There is a very short ride video posted above (It's difficult to hold a camera with the remote in the other hand). But I am planning to shoot some clips with a friend. Will post it here then.
Thank you for your kind words. If you do not have a 3D-printer you could try using 3dHubs to look for printers near your area. I see that there are a lot of hubs in India and the nearest hub to your city is around 200 km away. They would then send you your parts by post. Check out the prices to see if it fits your budget. Other than that you could look into some Prusa clones which are quite affordable. A well built DIY printer would cost around 300 USD using open source firmware.
This is super mesmerising. I like the creativity in your designs. Where do you get your ideas/ inspiration from?

Thank you very much, I will!
I get this question a lot and always need to do a little explaination. The three most expensive components, is the BLDC motor, VESC and battery. I spent around 400 Euros on those parts. 3.3 kW motor, VESC, 2*super flat 4S LiPos. The price range for each of those components varies significantly if you choose a 1.2 kW motor, normal RC ESC, single 4S 5000 mAh battery, it can be well under 200 Euros.
Thanks for the support.
This board can reach speeds of up to 42 km/h and has a range of over 16 km. The average pace of daily rides is around 15 - 20 km/h.In the case of an empty battery, you can still push the board but of course there is some resistance from the motor.

It can go really far! Nice design
Thank you very much! It is incredibly fun and is now my main mode of transportation around the city.
