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.

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?
