3d Printed F1 Wheel For Sim Racing

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

First post so hello to everyone on the forum.

I wanted a Formula 1 style steering wheel to mount on my Fanatec Universal Hub so I decided to model one up and print it out on my Ultimaker 2.

The project is nearly complete and is only awaiting the wiring up of the Leo Bodnar electronics.

My initial worry was that my design would not be sturdy enough but its rock solid.

I tried printing rubber handle covers with Ninja Flex but gave up due to frustration. I ended up brush painting the handle grips with about 10 coats of Plasti Dip. Its OK but the finish is not that smooth so I have ordered a larger tin of Plasti Dip so I can actually dip the entire handle and hopefully get a smooth finish.

Please take a look at my Flickr Photo Stream for more pictures.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
