Description

This is a Mostly 3D-Printable, modular, Remote Controlled car, that was designed and developed as part of a Senior Design Project by Daniel Kapuskar and Anthony Fite under the advisement of Dr. Mariappan Jawaharlal of the Mechanical Engineering Department at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. It features a unique chassis with multiple longitudinal slots to accommodate many mounting positions for all parts,  that can be 3D printed or Laser cut. There are multiple suspension design options that allow the entire system to be Printed, of partially printed with some commercially available parts. Drive-train components will need to be purchased to make this work, but this allows for a wide range of price and performance levels to be obtained. We recommend using PLA for all parts rather than ABS(ABS parts did not last long and were prone to layer separation).
