3D model description
I made this wheel for a 1/4 scale SiSt FW190 that a friend of mine is building. It can be scaled down for other sizes, off course. At this size the tire is designed to be a plug for making a silicone mould for casting rubber tires. Smaller versions can be printed from TPE and them carefully bonded together with a soldering iron along the seam.
Twelve M3x35 mm screws are needed to assemble each wheel. The center hole is 10 mm, and needs a 10x8 mm brass tube to work as a bearing surface.
If the wheel is scaled down to for example 1/5 scale, the bolts need to be M2.5x28 mm screws, and the center hole will be 8 mm.
For personal use only, not for resale or redistribution.
3D printing settings
Back: 0.2 mm layers, four outlines and 30% for a strong wheel. Support around the edge.
Front: 0.2 layers up to 13.6 mm height and then switch to 0.08 mm layers to achieve a good finish of the dished surface. Three outlines and 30% for strength. Support around the edge. If you are unable to change layer height then print the whole thing in 0.08 mm.
Making a good quality tire finish needs about 0.08 mm resolution.
The pictured wheel was printed on a Wanhao Duplicator i3 V1.
