You know what the 3D printing community REALLY needs, is totally feasible, doesn’t exist yet, would be really stinking cool, and an awesome use of our machines?
An open source RC-car platform. If we could just get some sort of basis that is similar to existing “standardized” cars, I think that a lot of people would start modifying suspensions, drivetrains, geometry, etc.
There is a guy currently working on this, but he’s such a tease, only having released a differential and a wheel. He’s also got a community https://plus.google.com/communities/112745535856143176146 which is dedicated to this project.
Maybe some competition would be good. RC Cars!
This post, also, was totally brought to you by carls jr (it’s got electrolytes!), and my reading of this post: http://www.3ders.org/articles/20130102-prowler-3d-printed-custom-remote-controlled-car.html
