Default 3dSets 3d printed Rancher 4x4

I wanted to try this out and see how far a 3d printed model has come. It's going to take approx 3 rolls of filament to print this so will cost about $75.00 for the plastic. Maybe 10 dollars on ebay for the bearings. I have plenty of spare electronics to throw at it.

Currently printed the first 3 plates of parts, working on the 4th now. It's taking 15-17 hours to print each plate. Printing everything in black and yellow Petg. it looks like its going to take a week or two to print all of the parts.

One of the downfalls of 3d printing, waking up to this. The first attempt of plate 2 failed, I was able to save the frame rails but had to reprint the two large parts.

Benefit is other then some lost time and filament it's easy to reprint.

Chassis went together very easy. They did a good job designing all the parts to work together. Transmission is on the printer now.

Tried the next plate print and woke up to a disaster. Something let go and most likely got dragged around and took out everything else.

So to make it simpler I broke up the plate and printed them separately. The flares turned out fine. The gear set while staying together skipped a step about halfway up the shafts and everything is slightly offsets. No chance they are any good. Going to have to try a 3rd take of those parts.

My yellow filament showed up for the body so once the next plates done I'll switch one of the printers over to start printing body panels.

Lost a mirror on this one but otherwise a good print. One more black plate cooking on the printer left to finish.

Last official black plate print. Got an assorted failed parts batch printing to finish it up and the other printer has started the first plate of yellow body panels.

Well the first batch of body panels didn't go too well. Woke up to this mess. When I crashed for the night the print was 24 hours in and was looking good. Woke up to 36 hours in and this mess. 6 parts had completed but the hood and front fenders was a complete failure.

I tried the hood again by itself and it also failed so it was time to add some custom support.

So I redid the hood and fenders to include better structural supports to make sure they printed properly. Hood printing now.


Decided to start with black wheels with yellow beadlock rings. I'll probably redo them in alum or silver down the road if they hold up.

Tranny went together easily. Rotates smootly.

I had no idea you could print out a gearbox. The question is, how does it hold up? Guess it don't matter when you can print your own replacement parts

It will be interesting to see how the tranny and axles hold up for sure. Even if eventually have to use a RC tranny and axles it is still going to be a nice body.
