  1. The larger wheel size will become too expensive I am afraid to 3D print. Probably 15-20 EUR per tire, no rim. This would need to be cast. I think the standard 62mm lego tire is pretty good actually, but perhaps a new rim would be valuable? I will mock one up when I get a moment today.
  2. I wanted to share some minor progress on the custom tires. I have modeled up some off road tire tread, let me know what you think. I will order a set to be printed this week of the on road tires, so I will update everyone interested once the results come in.
  3. Hi Jameson,

    How is the status with your designed wheels?

    Kind regards,

    Richard

      Richard,

      I have made 2 types of tread, I will likely contract the 3D printing and prototype the tire and rim soon to check for fitment.  I will post more in the next week or so!

      Ok....i'm looking forward to it.

      Hi Jameson,

      Is there any progress on the tyres and rims?

      Hope to hear from you soon.

      Kind regards,

      Richard

  4. I think 8-9 Euro each for the 40.5mm (rim and tire set of 1) would be a realistic price for very low quantity production. I will price them out and see where we go!
  5. To answer everyones questions, a rim and tire set for the 62mm wheel scale is equally feasible, however the cost will about double. It seams like there is great interest in this size, I should have some time next week to mock something up! With that said, what is a price point bracket you would be willing to pay for the 40mm wheels and 62mm wheels? Assume a set of 4 (4 tires, 4 rims)
  6. I have composited the wheels onto a truck of appropriate scale to give an idea of the imporvement the wheels can make! I have borrowed an image from the woderful Renault Magnum MOC found here (http://www.doublebrick.ru/forums/viewtopic.php?t=19021) Note, this is not my MOC.
  7. The pictures seem to be back up now! I am not sure what the issue was with MOC Pages.
  8. Alternate tread patterns would be fairly easy to produce, yes. I could have 2-3 options ranging from street tires to construction type heavy machinery tires.
  9. Hello, I have created a better scale tire & rim for trucks and light industry vehicles with a proper rim offset. The proportions allow for dual tire mounting and single. Is there any intrest within the community to have something like this produced? (in low volumes) I would look forward to hearing any insight/ feedback - purists need not respond! :) The tire would be a flexible rubber like material, rim would be SLS printed or ABS.
  10. Hi, sorry to bump an old thread but I finally have gotten around to some progress on the articulated hauler and thought I would share. I started an Ldraw file for the chassis. I have made the dump bucket but not in 3D. Perhaps someone more talented than me would like to finish the files!

  11. I would love to, but I think the creator posts to another forum. I was hoping the answer was something easy I was jut not seeing.
  12. Hi, My name is Jameson, I am new to this fourm but I have been following the threads here for a long time. I really liked Pipasseyoyo's 6X6 articulated hauler, and he was nice enough to post many detailed photos on his brickshelf page so I thought I would try my hand at reverse engineering. There were no instructions, so it sounded like a good challenge! I have the chassis mostly complete, but unfortunately have gotten stumped on how the gear train will work once passed through the turn table. there is a 90deg turn with knob wheels, but they are in the way of the input axle and I can't seem to figure out how he has done it! I need to offset the input axle 1 stud higher to pass over the knob wheels. I was hoping someone here could help shed some light on it and any help would be appreciated. I have created a crude 3D model of the problem area to share in case it helps. Thanks in advance! https://drive.google...YW8&usp=sharing
