eSherpa- the 3d printed electro trolley

Recommended Posts

Since about 3 years i was thinking about a little machine which can make my life as a tandem pilot a little bit easier.. i know i have the best job in the world but there is only one bad point: carrying 25 kg stuff uphill.

But since i got my UM2 i was able to print out a old dream of mine.

The eSherpa

I am interested to know what you guys are thinking about a 3D printable offroad electro trolley...

Wow, didn't think that parts that strong could be done with an UM2.. what is it, ABS?


Yes, its printed in ABS. I printed one version in PLA but after i forgot the device in the hot sun the black telescope was heated up so much that some parts get warped...

Most of the strength come from a clever construction. The two axis parts gets connected with two 5 mm steel bolts...

"They see me rollin', they hatin'" :mrgreen:

Very cool :) I love how you get passed all the others that are carrying their bags, nice projects and great of you to let it be opensource :cool:

What's the autonomy of the device?


The battery last for six turns. This is good for a complete "working" day in high season. But a second battery is always fully loaded at home...

BTW: How can i get this youmagine link into my signature?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
