If anyone needs spare or replacement o-ring this company has them https://www.alliedmetrics.com/seals/o-rings/

To get the comments back on topic. I really like this design. I will be printing this and testing shortly. Thanks for uploading.

Interesting. Like the idea of using O-rings for traction.

Lame, I would rather print these for free. On another note, you're such a dick for trying to promote your site and spam your products.

Flagged for spam.

Obviously you didn't read the description of that upload..

Your first statement was not an opinion, it's speculation. You then put his design down and stated that yours is better and posted your site and email to buy your product. That's not a clever way to make money. You just made yourself look shallow.

I am Ross Robotics, who is VicenzaThunders? I am judging you based on your disrespectful statements to the uploader.

How would like it if I made a comment on your site about how your products are not efficient and proceeded to place a link to a product that has better quality than yours? Which I must admit, there are a lot of omni wheels that are far better. Which I won't post a link to them just to respect the uploader.

"Your design sucks, mine is better. Buy it."

You're a dick, dude. Not sure why you bother defending yourself. If you don't recognize what is wrong with your behavior I would seek counseling.

Hi cluc,
Nice to see that even after years there are still someone interested about my behavior more than about the design.

Anyway I'm sorry for having been a dick, maybe my English wasn't good enough to write exactly what I was thinking.

Please, ignore the marketing part of the comment and focus on the first part: I haven't said "your design sucks" I said what is wrong in that design.
I'm 23 and I've about 5 years of experience in designing and 3d printing fully customizabe omnidirectional and mecanum wheels, if you don't accept my suggestion you will need time to improve by yourself.

After I gave you that important suggestion I also suggested to but my products, in case people don't have time to make this one and to test if it works. This option is still available: http://www.VicenzaThunders.com/products

Actually I still see nobody who has made it, if you are the first one please take a video about how rollers rotate.

In conclusion, maybe I've been politically-incorrect, not technically-incorrect.
Best regards

Maybe I will delete this discussion soon because it is totally off-topic...
