Hi Selig, thank you, glad you like it!I have attached an image, I hope it uploads properly... The wheelbase is about 200mmI have seen two people on Facebook who are working on SCX10 sized ones, I think it works out to roughly 1/6 scale, but I am not sure on the exact measurements. My page is facebook.com/ossumdesigns and I often share interesting builds there.

Hi Thanks for feeding back, I also wasn't aware of the different versions, but Kent Hatton ran across the same issue as you. I gave him the original knuckle files and he made some new ones that solved the problem for him, you can find them here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2165216If you run into other specific problems, please let me know, I (and others) are working on fixing all the little issues. If you are on facebook I would recommend following my page: https://m.facebook.com/ossumdesigns/ because I post all the updates that people share there.I have also asked everyone who makes additions to post them on thingiverse with the tag "ossumjeep" so they are easy to find.Look forward to seeing your pictures!
I'm glad that it helped. I just used the "file >> capture image" option to save a series of images. First set up the camera where you want it, then right click on "Named Views" in the browser and select "New Named View", this lets you get back to the same place every time, in case you move the camera by accident. Once I have taken all the pictures (and saved them with filenames with a number, e.g. screenshot001, screenshot002, etc), I import them into GIMP and use the animation options to save them as a GIF. In retrospect I think it would be easier to use Fusion's "animation" tools though, and save as a video, I plan to do one of the jeep soon and post on my youtube channel, but it is taking me a long time to include all the nuts and bolt...see more »I'm glad that it helped.

It always makes me happy to see a grand prize winner that totally deserves it, no doubt about it. Well documented, interesting, and genuinely useful, good job!
Hi McMurphy, I am really glad that the Instructable was useful to you!It was a very long time ago that I wrote this code, but if I recall correctly, the "analogWriteAdvanced" function that I used might be specific to the LinkIt One ibraries that I used. That might be causing your compiler problems.Perhaps you can try to replace that function with a standard "analogWrite()" which will just limit you to a lower frequency.My main concern is that your motor may be fixed speed. I recall that the main drive motor I got out of my printer had only two speeds, carefully controlled in a feedback loop on the control board itself (presumably for passing the paper through the printer at a precise speed). Yours looks like a drive motor judging by the metal helical gear.
You're welcome! Please send me pics when it's done, I'd like to make a gallery of everyone's builds along with who built them and share on my Facebook page, if you are keen (https://www.facebook.com/ossumdesigns/)If I ever get hold of a new Kulak I will add info on the stock electronics, the $100 is a bit of a stretch right now though. I'll add photos of my own electronics once I have tidied them up. I am currently using a seriously over-specced ESC from a bigger car, so the fit is a bit tight ;-)
Hi benciniI used a 2nd hand kulak that I got aithout electronics, so I used other electronics I had lying around, thought it might confuse people to show pics of that ;-)I managed to fit it all under the hood, including a small 2S, 1000mAh lipo battery. I think the stock electronics should all fit in there, but the battery might not. You may nees to be creative a and put it in an ammo box behind the back seats or something.
:-DNormally I don't bother with the "one massive prize" contests, 'cos there is always that one insane project that was someone's thesis or something, but eventually the allure of the 3D pen drew me in.Besides, doesn't hurt to be on the front page of entries ;-)
Congrats Brett, this was really a well deserved win, great job!
Thank you. You are right there is a lot to learn about 3D printing, but it is totally worth it.Look forward to seeing your print, This model looks complex but should be very easy to print, since all the parts have been split up with flat for easy bed adhesion.Just don't do to many pieces at once if you are just starting out, it is always tempting but is often not worth the risk of losing a whole batch when one parts comes unstuck.
Great stuff!Finding good driver figures in a true 1:10 scale is always tricky, let us know if you find one that works!
Jeep video coming in a few days hopefully. This is my channel https://m.youtube.com/user/ossumtubes
That sounds like a blast! I'd love to see it.Unfortunately I am pretty much on the other side of the world, in Cape Town!
You can never have too many RC cars ;-)
I haven't tackled t-splines either, but I think I need to. I used a lot of lofting in my hot rod (and also that kayak) and kept running into issues when I tried to shell things.I also have some plans to do a new car using the surface modelling tools more, we'll see how it comes out! Guess we'll be meeting here again next year :-PThe deadlines are a curse and a blessing, I find them motivating in that last 20% of a project when I am starting to get frustrated/bored with all the fiddly details, my mind is normally wandering away to new projects at that point.I think I need to take some design tips from your rider into a driver for the jeep.

I'm sure it will do well, I am very impressed with your design. It has been getting some nice press coverage already, I think you did a good job of appealing to the non-RC and non-3D-printing crowds.I actually still just have the CraftBot+, I told Brook I would wait for the RC-specific PrintrBot, which may or may not have been a mistake ;-)The CraftBot has been great though. It has some irritating rattles but besides that it is an absolute workhorse, just pumping out print after print. Most of the time I don't even wait around to see the first layers going down, just stick in the USB and hit print.I'll be sure to post in the group.
Its really great how much attention it has gotten. It's always a cool feeling to wake up to an interesting message from some corner of the world that you never expected your work to end up in.I think the human element of yours is what really catches peoples imagination, especially folk who aren't in the RC hobby, they just don't expect to see a little dude who moves (unlike my 3 year old who gives me a hard time if I don't have an articulated driving figure in each RC)The running videos are always a big chunk of effort, I look forward to seeing yours. Mine are also as-yet-unfilmed.
The headlamps are actually already printed, just a matter or wiring them up now. The contest deadline kind of snuck up on me ;-)What will really amuse you is that I printed the entire jeep in transparent filament because of those two tiny headlamp pieces, everything else had to be painted!

3d Printed RC Motorcycles: 2016 Ducati Draxter and 2016 Suzuki GSX-RR MotoGP
Ah, my old competitor, Our RC's were in last year's 3D printing contest together too. I was worried you were going to post this here when I saw it on openRC, especially since it is so good that I am going to have to vote against myself ;-)Mine is only coming out later today though, cutting it fine as always!
Hi HielkeDoing it without WiFi is wise, I hardly ever use mine because it is too much effort to get the phone out ;-)Regarding the code for your Arduino, I recommend you take a look at the "button" example and the servo "sweep" or "knob" example sketches.In other words, when you detect a button press you will use servo.write(open) and servo.write(close) where "open" and "close" are variables that store the angles at which your servo opens or closes the flower.If you have trouble with it then let me know, I can give more help once the current 3D printing competition is close, at the moment every spare hobby second is going towards getting my entry ready!By the way, I'd love to see a pic of your flower once it is done.
Thanks for the response. I actually came across that thread in my searches, it has a lot of good info in it.
I just tried it out, that is a brilliant resource, thanks for the tip!
This is some next-level stuff, seriously impressive. Thanks for sharing. Your write-up was an enjoyable read too.
"a short jump", I see what you did there.

Simply incredible! You have my vote.
WarCraft Warsong Orc Full Size Costume Cosplay
I look forward to seeing your Unimog! I love scale RC stuff, I haven't been able to justify the expense of buying a crawler yet, but the bug has bitten, so I am working on a project to turn an old Tamiya TL01 chassis into one, using various 3D printed parts.
Thanks a lot. Strangely I think that building an RC car that works well (one might debate whether mine does...) is actually harder in some ways than a plane or boat, but on the upside, when it fails it just sits there instead of sinking or falling out of the sky ;-)
Hehe, thanks, I wasn't even sure I was going to post it here, since its hardly a complicated build, but I thought it might be of interest.
Scale Kayak for RC CrawlerView Instructable »
:-) You had me at "knack for making useless things", there is something strangely rewarding about it. My "Text Message in a Bottle" is my favorite one so far.
Great Instructable, its a good example of the varied skills that a well-rounded maker should/could develop. Also, good job on real-life-ing such a oddball movie item, I dig it!
Is that the wrong link? It doesn't seem to answer the question. Or are you just saying that it must be OK because of those examples in the thread?I know tone can get lost in text, I am really interested in the answer to this, not trying to shoot you down.
I will be interested to hear if it works out for you, I presume nothing has changed over the last four years with the tiling system etc, but who knows!
This is too cool, I look forward to your next Instructable on how you create the body from aluminium sheet!
Very nice work!I have been thinking of doing something like this for ages, but never got stuck into it becuase I didn't have welding/brazing tools. I will be interested to hear how the epoxy method holds up once you start driving it.
That looks like it, seems like everything you need except bearings (pretty sure I had to buy mine separately too).
It was #BR233026 but it seems like it is not available any more. Mine had quality issues, so maybe they stopped producing them (I had to slightly enlarge the mounting holes on the spur gear, so that I could center it on the shaft properly - it initially had a wobble that destroyed the pinion gear).There are some other options, but I can't find any one-stop options that come with all the required parts (shaft, slipper clutch etc), except perhaps this one: complete gearbox with gears. I would just recommend searching for "SCX10 gears" on Asiatees.com
Truly a beautiful piece Jon! Your assembly diagrams are almost as pretty as the end result, I assume you did them in Fusion too?

I'm glad to hear that! Instructables is one of the most pleasant and constructive communities on the web. The competitions are cool too, you'd be surprised what you can win, just by putting a little effort into documenting the projects you are already doing.
Such a clever real-world use of a 3d printer!
These look really cool, and I like the use of GIFs! Isn't it uncomfortable to wash with soap that has pine needles and things in it though?
Thanks Brock, that is a handy tip, I will try and get hold of an AX10 open diff and see if it works, I think it would really improve the handling.
That is a useful tip, I didn't know about that resource, thanks! I must say though, most of my laziness with regards to fasteners is about inserting and constraining them in the model via joints etc. I find the more little jointed items there are the more hassles I have with rebuilds etc.
