US army tank tracks are available here: http://youshouldbuildit.blogspot.com/p/blueprints.html and DIY tracks Blueprints video. This is a slide show of my homemade mattracks made for my trike to haul firewood and timber out of the forest during the winter. Video shows a standard 25mm, 3mm pipe milled down to 2mm for fitting a bearing. First video of four in the homemade ATV tracks build series. This time I'm welding together the sprockets and turning bearing brackets and rear axle wideners in the lathe. See DIY sawmill. On ebay "personal tracked vehicle" plans.

3d printed Edit

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jE9xyDmjvcw I've completed 2/3 of my track system and give it a test run. I've very, very happy with the results of the test. I also spend a lot of time in the video explaining the design and engineering of most of the parts including gears, drive shaft, axels, wheels, trucks and floating idler system with automatic track tensioner.

HOW to mount a bearing on 3d printed driveshaft with two fiber tubes. 36min Uploader provides detailed information. At 47min 3mm steel pin as pivot shaft between to plastic pieces, shaft is clamped tight with center grub screw. Tyres printed with flexable Ninjaflex filament.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zoaHeamUqBE Robotics engineers at SRI International in Silicon Valley have developed the first new rotary transmission design since the invention of the Harmonic Drive gear. https://spectrum.ieee.org/automaton/robotics/robotics-hardware/sri-demonstrates-abacus-rotary-transmission abacus drive , replaces harmonic drive, which has the lowest backlash. Harmonic gears are great, but they’re also superduper expensive, because they require all kinds of precision machining. Alexander Kernbaum, a senior research engineer at SRI International, has come up with an entirely new rotary transmission called the Abacus drive, and it’s a beautiful piece of clever engineering that offers all kinds of substantial advantages:

Heng long Edit

Henglong
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SA1vb0Ua6vg video of first run on my latest project, a Heng Long 1/16 M41A3 Walker Bulldog RC Tank with Dual Mabuchi RS540 Motors. Modular 3D printed tank mounts and worm gear drive housings I designed on TurboCAD. RC ball bearings on worm drive. 3D printed beaing insert on drive axle with 16x8x5 ball bearing for output. Fabricated aluminum motor rail. Run with Sabertooth 2X12, single7.2V battery. Final drive ratio 23.64 to 1. Drop in 3D printed mounts use same stock mounting holes as oringinal gear housing. Had to custom make the spur gear hubs from a shaft coupler and a universal hub on lathe. The drive axles are fabricated from 5/16 grade 5 bolt shank and RC truck axle. Lid fit on the tank, motors are right under the air vents! This turned out so nice, wanted to share this with you. These mounts should fit in any Heng Long tank with any motor. What is really nice is to be able to change gear raitos you can't do with stock gear boxes. Will see how they hold up. Very tight fit but it works, mission accomplised.

Snowplow Edit

The result is a miniature version of a true snowplow, caterpillar tracks, with blade and light projector mounted on top to light the way in the dark; everything is controlled by a remote control from the PlayStation 2. Let us see how our caterpillar robot is assembled, starting from the mechanics and then describing the electronics and firmware that is necessary.

swatbot Edit

Robot arm rotates on platform or lazy Susan bearing, rotated by a chain, sproket and vertical DC motor. http://www.howeandhowe.com/rs1-rbs1-robotic-ballistic-shield.html SWAT-Bot is the world's first mid sized robot designed solely for SWAT/SERT applications. It serves as a robotic ballistic shield, door breacher and vehicle/debris remover when the environment is deemed unsafe. The Robotic Ballistic Shield (RBS1) or “Swat Bot” concept was created in coordination with the Massachusetts State Police. It utilizes the RS1 base platform, a collapsible ballistics shield, and a hardened AR400 steel nose shield to protect those in the line of fire. Standard procedures for approaching a hostile environment means utilizing a shield barely larger than the human torso for protection. The “SWAT Bot” offers the operator and team adequate cover from hailing gunfire and explosive scenarios.
