3D printed offset uminog wheels

Recommended Posts


A while ago i started making alternative wheels for lego uminog tyres. First i made them using sketchUp but i had a lot of problems so i restarted building it in a totaly unknown program for me, 123d design. It was hard to learn to use this program. Today i got the final version, finally after 4 first they lookt really ugly (see below) but halfway through the cutting of the support matterial it was much better.

i am really happy with the final result. beside the not-that-accurate printing, my wheels look pretty awsome.

i don't like the looks of it when they are out of the tyres but when they are on them, it's like it was meant to be

Looks good, maybe the little star points should be a little wider, have you had any problems with them?

Also, do they work with portal hubs, or is there too much offset to reach?

Edit- typo

about the stars, its an optical illusion the arms are 1 stud thick so i was able to make the slopes

as you see i edited the first post with the stl pics.

the inside is around 0.5-1mm smaller than the normal ones. but still enough place. i think it will work, but i don't have them.

with this print it has an inside diameter of little less than 6 studs, but because my teachers printer isn't that precize i the version you'll get will be 6 studs

i mesured the crossholes from the original rims so it would be right. make sure on the new rim's the angle between the two "bars" of the cross is 89°. the old ones its 90° but the hole is slightly smaller than a normal crossaxle
