Re: 1:10ish 3D printed DOT "Construction Ahead" sign display

Ooh. I'm nerdy enough that I'm gonna do that ... for complicated reasons, I once spent an afternoon reading the state vehicle code as relating to whether doors are required on vehicles. Short answer...

Re: Tires for conversions

I, err, was going for "roll your own tires" because tires roll. I have no idea to what else you might reefer, err, refer :rolleyes: Dave's not here, man. =))



Yeah, it gets frustrating,...

Re: Tires for conversions

Oh snap! At first I thought you were gonna suggest flexible filaments, which can be a royal pain, at least IME. And the detail left a lot to be desired. :(

But this, wow. Commonly available stuff,...

Re: Tires for conversions

I hear you on the street tread. I had a devil of a time finding one for my Fierito, which, err, I don't have a thread for here. Ended up using a Tamiya tire from their robot/education line, which is...

Re: Tires for conversions

Ooh, good options! I'd seen some stuff on the Lego tires but they seemed mostly car-ish, and I've only seen some of those WPL ones. The others may be real handy for some projects (rubbing hands...

Re: LINN Model DD-15 "HafTrak" Dump (1/14)

I'm still trying to wrap (pun intended) my head around the suspension. You're doing amazing work! I'm half-way (again, pun intended) doing a WWII half-track, and they pose a unique set of challenges....

Re: Bruder Piggyback Forklift

Holy carp, okay, that's insane then that you got all that in there!

My "1:10ish" is about twice the size of the Bruder. I sized it so that it would lift onto the bed of my trailers, and some...

Re: Bruder Piggyback Forklift

Beautiful work! And a fun toy, err, project =))

If you have a minute, I'd be obliged if you could post up dimensions of the thing (not counting the forks.) I'm curious how it compares to my wildly...

Re: 1:10ish Reach Stacker for "conex" cargo containers

Thanks all for the good words!

The gyro boards are sold as both GY-521 and MPU-6050, Amazon, Fleabay, Aliexpress would all have 'em. From that you can Google the code, easy enough, or in a pinch I...

Re: 1:10ish Reach Stacker for "conex" cargo containers

End result is not as pretty as, well, the majority of builds, not visually accurate to much of anything, but certainly functional and I find it fun. Just the grabbing of the containers requires...

Re: 1:10ish Reach Stacker for "conex" cargo containers

So that's it for pix. I did take some videos, some of which came out appalling awful and others only pretty bad.

Re: 1:10ish Reach Stacker for "conex" cargo containers

The complexity of controlling the thing made for complex needs at the TX. I love me the FlySky FSi6's, cheap and hackable, but this build took a bit more hacking than others:

Re: 1:10ish Reach Stacker for "conex" cargo containers

The grabbing mechanism proper is M4 bolts turned down to a point on the ends. All of my containers have a standardized spacing for the top holes. Trying to make the pins motorized would have made an...

Re: 1:10ish Reach Stacker for "conex" cargo containers

The grabber mechanism is made to adjust to the various cargo containers I've built, which makes it wider than I would have liked.

Re: 1:10ish Reach Stacker for "conex" cargo containers

The chassis is welded steel channel, along with a ten pound steel block on the back as counterweight. (Did I mention a bit of overengineering?)

There's no suspension, so the axles are just mounted...

Re: 1:10ish Reach Stacker for "conex" cargo containers

Conex size (specifically height) does however affect stacking ability, and I really really wanted to be able to stack three containers. Which is possible, just requires a long (and strong) arm.

Re: Bruder Piggyback Forklift

Apologies, one of these days I'll learn to check for previous experience before I go frothing off at the mouth. Might be a little Arduino happy :|

Wrt the current limit, though, I just drive one...

Re: 1:10ish 3D printed DOT "Construction Ahead" sign display

Re: 1:10ish 3D printed DOT "Construction Ahead" sign display

I really hope the Public Works people finish the roadwork, or I'll be printing toys forever =)) Had another "How hard can it be" epiphany:

Re: Bruder Piggyback Forklift

Yeah, love me those beacons as they're so simple.

And M3.5? Who thought of that? Sheesh.

Dayum, that came out well. Coupla things I hadn't thought of there, as I blithely assumed the front/fixed wheels would be the driven ones. In your pix, though, I see where there prolly isn't room for...

Re: 1:10ish 3D printed DOT "Construction Ahead" sign display

Re: 1:10ish Alvis Stalwart 6x6 high mobility carrier, wrongest of the wrong

Well, I can't take credit for the design since it's semi-accurate to the original. I don't envy the crazy people who have Stollies now, though. Keeping my Fiero running is nothing in comparison!

Re: 1:10ish Alvis Stalwart 6x6 high mobility carrier, wrongest of the wrong

Heh, thanks! It's not perfect by any means, flubbed a couple bits, and some I had to take liberties with. The crane, particularly, isn't exact, but like I said the cylinders (actuators) only come in...
