3D model description

As the title suggest this thing is a fully assembled mars curiosity rover wheel. Obviously not everyone has one of these laying about to take measurements from so ive modeled it from pictures and data of website like wiki. I know that the wheel diameter is 500mm so ive just scaled everything from that. Currently im still playing with the print orientation, support material and the limits and fits with the bolts so that they are just push fit with minimal assembly. If you want to go ahead and print some of the individual parts yourself then there shouldn't be a problem but don't expect to print all the parts and have an easy assembly as they are a work in progress.

3D printing settings

I'm currently using PLA with 0.1 mm layer thickness, 0.3mm nozzle diameter and 0 infill for most parts except for the hub which has a 60-75% infill.
