MakerBot Print is our newest print-prepration software, which supports native CAD files and STL assemblies,
allows you to interact with all your printers via the Cloud, and many other exciting new features.
I'm back with a 3D model of a Cat 3406 Diesel engine for your RC Truck ;)
This model is created so you can screw nearly everything together (some small things are glued in place like turbo or filter, maybe you can screw them...)
There is a small place meant to install a small DC motor to awaken life the engine.
This model was printed and installed on a Ford Aeromax, it surely would pass on other trucks with some modification.
For this kit you will need :
5 x M3x8mm
4 x M2x6mm
2 x M1.6x4.5mm (to mount the DC motor - maybe M1.5, nut 100% sure)
2 x M1.6x9mm
*It's working pretty good with this speed , but I needed to increase the vibration motor output on the MFC-01 Unit to the max, adn so I disconnected the vibretion engine because it was just too much, but anyway I prefer my fake engine to turn instead of the vibration motor ;).
You can choose another motor , but you will need to modify the files
PS: Included here are also the Solidworks files if you want to modify or to adapt for another truck.
