3D model description

The 3D printed RC truck, version 3.

After roughly 12 months development, this is what has come of it!

It's an almost fully printable RC truck with gearbox and AWD drivetrain.

-Each differential works as a real one but you can replace the internals with
"truckv3axledifflock" to have a locked diff with more grip.

-It has two axles in the files, select the one you want.

Axle1 has dual rear tyres, Axle2 has single rear tyres.

Axle2 also has 2 choices in rims.

-The frame can be printed in 2 or 4 pieces, depending on how big your print surface is.

Use the "split" files if you have a small printbed.

All you need to build this, besides a lot of filament, is screws/nuts, bearings and electronics.

This was a huge project to develop and upload so please let me know if anything is missing or unclear!

Assembly videos of most parts to aid you in building can be found on my youtube channel:

Check me out at:

Everything except mudflaps and tyres can and has been printed in PLA plastic, printing the drivetrain in PETG/Nylon will make it a lot more durable.

Tyres/mudflaps need to be printed in Ninjaflex or similar material.
Tyres from Tamiya 1:14 scale trucks can also be used.

This truck needs quite a lot of screws to be assembled.
The totals is:
8x M4x20
37x M3x10
15x M3x10(Counter sunk)
72x M3x16
27x M3x8(Grubscrews)
22x 6700zz bearings
16x M3 nuts
2x M4 nuts
3x 18mm long, 4mm rods.
2x 80mm long, 4mm rods.

I've done my best but these might not be 100% accurate so buy a few screws extra. :)

You will also need:
-Rubber bands for holding battery to the holder
-Cable ties for cable management/securing components
-Super glue for assembling flatbed and putting mudflaps on fenders

Comes out well in 0.2mm layers and 20% infill.

3D printing nerd and wannabe-engineer. Making random projects from RC trucks to nerf guns, interested in pretty much anything technology related.

Top projects are my RC vehicles:
3D printed half-track truck
-Fully articulated and driven treaded vehicle.
3D printed RC truck V3
-4x4 truck with full drivetrain model.
3D printed RC buggy V2
-RWD race buggy
3D Printed RC truck V4
-6x6 standalone truck chassis to build upon.

Been 3D printing since 2013, lately moving into mechanical design and metalworking.

I do youtube videos about most things I make.
