RC Car Manufactured on 3D Printer

Because I know how to work in professional programs Tinkercad and Autodesk Inventor and I like these programs and they are the most convenient and simple. And we with children already knew how to model as all last year I taught them to it, and still to us this year bought two 3D-printers. And we decided to do some project on a 3D printer. This project was an RC car. Since there were 6 kids, each kid would take 1 to 2 pieces to model them and then we would improve or finish them all together.

Supplies:

3D-printer.

Tinkercad accounts.

Autodesk Inventor Professional 2019 accounts.

Plastic.

Bolts and nuts.

Step 1: Creation of the Machine Chassis.

We started with the creation of the chassis of this machine. We did it in class, so it didn't take long.

Step 2: The Upper Part of the Chassis.

The battery is attached to this part and there is a switch underneath.

Step 3: Supports of the Upper Frame and Supports of the Case.

To assemble the machine parts you will need:

6 bolts ;

parts from steps: 1; 2; 3.

Parts 3; 4; 7; 8; 9; with the bolts twirl in the 1 detal.

On details 7; 8; 9; 10 put detail 2.

On detail 2; put an details 5; 6.

From above screw in the details 7; 9 bolts.

Step 4: Gears.

Gears and several other parts we made in Tinkercad.

Step 5: The Rear Part With the Engine.

To assemble the machine parts you will need:

6 bolts.

Put part 2; 3 on part 1 and bolt them to part 1.

To detail 2; 3 twirl detail 4.

Step 6: Wheels.

I like the way these wheels look. They turned out very well.

Step 7: Steering Part of the Car.

To assemble the machine parts you will need:

6 bolts;

4 of the bearing.

To part 1 screw the part 2 by means of bolts.

To part 2, screw part 3; 4 with the bottom bolts.

Between part 2 and 3; 4 put the spring and tighten the top bolt.

In parts 3; 4 insert on two bearing.

Step 8: The Car Is Almost Assembled.

Although all the details were printed, we still had a lot of work to do, but we already liked the look of this car.

Step 9: Suspension.

We thought for a long time how to make a suspension on this car and how to fix the rear of the chassis and decided to saw off a small part of the Saw on the metal and got an elastic suspension. And in front we put a spring between the frame and the fist.

Step 10: The Car Is Assembled.

When we started assembling the car, we had difficulties, we didn't know where to get the tires, engine, steering and radio control . Well, the father of one of the children was engaged in radio-controlled cars and helped us find where to buy these parts.

This is our first work that we have printed on a 3D printer, and if you have any ideas how to improve this machine, then write them in the comments.
