Description

Printrbot Labs (the R&D arm of Printrbot) has built a RC Tank, so we are sharing it!

Printrbot Tank is a 3D printed design for all to enjoy. We designed it to be made with 3D printed parts and went ahead and made a metal version as well. We are posting all the files so feel free to hack it and have fun.

Any chance of getting more details on the misc nuts and bolts for those of us who want to print and build a tank?

Very nice. A few questions:

What filament did you use for the tread? NinjaFlex?

Are the print times for a Plus: 16 hours to print one track?
