Who can print 6 Fisher-price-explorer-wheels for me?

Hi to all,

I made the original file, based on measurements an 1,5 hour of work in Autocad.

The export did seem to complex for printing, and therefore mr. Reedijk took my wireframe model, and remodelled it in Vectorworks.

I will try to get it, So GR5 can share it with everyone.

How to replace the wheel mechanically, this is the explanation in Dutch, I will post a picture later, that might be easier than translating.

Kind regards,

Willem

Je moet wel zelf de blinde kop van de as slijpen, een gat boren in de kop van de as, en een binnendraad trekken.

Hierin kan je dan een zeskantboutje M3 draaien en met een miniscuul rondelletje (sluitring) het wiel vast zetten.

Ik heb wat kopervet op de as gedaan, me dunkt is dit goed voor de komende 30 jaar.

Merk op dat de wielen relatief zwaar zijn, omdat de geometrie te moeilijk was om als een dunwandig element te plotten.

Als je er zes nodig hebt zou ik dit alsnog onderzoeken.

If you want them printed in Nylon... you will pay the price they ask for printing in Nylon... Dutch: als je ze in Nylon geprint wilt hebben, zal je de prijs die ze daarvoor vragen moeten betalen.

My thanks to you both. That is a nice model. Kudos to the modeler(s) and the cleanliness of which it bears. Nice to see such work.

I do not have any fisher price toys, but I do enjoy and appreciate such nice modeling. :)

    Hi stephaluche,

     

    I guess the person I bought my Explorer from ( my mom gave away mine) just chopped the axl with big Pincers, and then grinded the end a bit to get a flat surface.

     

    In the post from GR5 you can see a picture of how you can mount the printed wheel.

     

    It takes some skills + the right equipment....so check your network if necessary.

     

    Succes, and please post a picture of the result.

     

    Kind regards,

     

    Willem.

    Hallo bedankt voor de download ik vraag aan iemand die ik ken om een wiel te maken.

    De wielen heb ik met 2 metalen plaatjes links en rechts van het wiel afgepenst en zo kwam het wiel en de as er gewoon uit.

    mvg

    Ik probeer via 3dhubs te printen, maar welk materiaal moet ik kiezen? Ik heb nu Nylon, HPPA 12 en 1 print kost maar liefst €165.21. Doe ik dit juist of moeten er andere keuzes gemaakt worden voor de juiste print?

    If you choose for PLA one wheel will cost €29,51...

    Dutch: als je voor PLA kiest kost 1 wiel €29,51...

     

    If you order 2 or more, they will get cheaper...

    Dutch: bestel je er 2 of meer dan worden ze goedkoper...

    Why on earth does these wheels seem so popular?

     

    Is this some sort of popular toy?

    I have also been wondering about that. I have seen the toy a couple of times, yes. But I think with a bit of searching in a hobby-shop or brico-shop, people should be able to find replacement wheels, like the standard wheels for shopping carts, or chairs,...

     

    Anyway, 3D-printing them will be an excellent test of layer-bonding. If kids can't destroy it, then nothing will.  :-)

    Lol, for sure.

     

    It just seems like it's really popular, I say that only having seen it here, but I'm just surprised so many people went through the trouble of signing up here JUST for that.
