Open RC 3D Printed F1 Car
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years then you probably already know that 3D printing is all the rage right now. But what if I told you that you could 3D print an RC car and you don’t have spend hundreds of hours designing your own? That’s what Daniel Noree of Stockholm, Sweden had in mind when he started the Open RC Project. Basically, Daniel designed a 1/10 scale RC F1 car and made all of the files available for free for anyone to download and print. The Open RC Formula 1 car is comprised of over 45 parts that can be printed by most hobbyist level 3D printers. All you need to add are some 3mm screws, six ball bearings and a set of electronics. The Open RC F1 car is designed to utilize normal 1/10 scale electronics so you probably already have what you need laying around. Even cooler, a few other 3D printing enthusiasts have already created a few upgrades for the Open RC F1 car including a set of rain tires, different wing designs, and even a set of wheels that let you use Tamiya F104 rubber tires. Amazingly, Daniel didn’t stop with the F1 car, he has also designed a 3D printable truggy and touring car!
