RC Rivian R1T
By Zeeland Bowers
This is a 100% 3d printed RC Rivian R1T that i designed and built.
What inspired you or what is the idea that got you started?
I am a Rivan enthusiast and wanted to model one. Once I started to model the body I decided to challenge myself and make it an RC truck.
What is your project about and how does it work?
This project has a gear ratio and a print in place steering mechanism, it is 100% 3D printed and only includes one screw, all other connectors are printed.
What did you learn by doing this project?
My project goal was to challenge myself. It gave me experience designing gear and print-in-place mechanisms and learning how to assemble large pla parts together. A problem I faced was the heat; the gears kept melting and caused me to go through numerous parts.
What impact does your project have on others as well as yourself?
This project made me a better maker and expanded my skills in a CAD program, it inspired younger kids to make more advanced projects.
