3D model description

Hello friends, I bring you a radio-controlled model of a wheeled steamer. The parrot is about 980mm long, the material used is PLA. nozzles were used 0.6 and 0.4 but it is up to you what you choose .. files are ideally printable on 400x400x400 printers .. but if you have smaller you can easily split the slicer .. the ship of course is not fast or not particularly is given by its concepts. I recommend instead of toothed wheels to use, for example, yellow motors (robot arduino) .. the reason is only noise reduction .. big gears are quite noisy .. but of course they are functional..motor you can use calm class "speed250" or some similar .. no need strong motors .. to secure the wheels to the axes will be the best axis to drill and secure the wire .. this is the easiest way .. but also good quality glue is enough ... I attach a couple of photos from the construction ..;) to be successful

!!!EDIT: please use this link for more steamer propulsion !!!

PS:of course the model I recommend to modelers already have some experience with rc models have;)

3D printing settings

What is the scale of the model?

hello, ballast should be used in any case. For the strength of the hull I choose infill but a higher number of perimeters.

Hay there how much infill is needed.
I made your tug boat at 20% infill
And that was not enough so fare I have had to put 3 kg of pure ballast in it ....
So how mush infill for this would be right
