Rein's agera RS1 Build

Postby Rein3003 » Wed Mar 04, 2020 1:57 pm

Hello everyone I am Rein, I'm from Belgium and I am 16 years old. I am sorry for my crappy English but here is the progress on my agera RS1 build. All parts have been printed on my prusa i3 mk3s in white creality pla and red, galaxy black and grey prusament. Most of the parts are printed at 0.2 mm layer height with the stock settings in prusa slicer. At this stage I have printed and assembled most of the parts. Next step is painting it like the agera RS1. I have already tried on a couple of parts but not with succes. If anyone has any tips for painting the 3d printed parts please let me know.

I am planning to make it RC but not in the near future, only the schock absorbers and a servo for steering have been fitted for now. I have not ordered the exact same shocks as Ölle linked in the equipment list. He linked the big bore shocks but hobbyking also the non big bore shocks wich are about 5 euro cheaper. https://hobbyking.com/de_de/alu-shock-a ... e_products

Looks awesome! thanks for posting! :) unfortunately I haven't painted any parts on mine so I don't have any good recommendations there, but for the other stuff I've painted, a couple of layers of primer and lots of sanding is generally the key to success, and applying several thin layers of paint rather than trying to spray thick.

Thanks for the advice! I will try it!

Recently I've been working on the electronics, I previously had only a servo in there. Now I got myself som led lights and an arduino nano. I've got the front of the car all working right now, but I'm still waiting for my fiber optics to arrive. I still have to figure out a way to mount lights in the rear housings, I am using 3mm red led's for it. For now the blinkers haven't been mounted in the headlights as I am going to use the fiber optics for it. I am also thinking of integrating a smoke exhaust in the back wich you sometimes see in rc cars. I finally figured out how to get the paint pretty nice out of a spay can. If interested this is the tutorial I followed for it: https://youtu.be/0vgynnYzo08).

Nice! :)

I was actually thinking of fiberoptic turn signals but ran out of time. Thanks for the link about the post-processing!

At the moment I am still waiting on the fiber optics to arrive, so no progress on the electronics. As i am not going to make it drive for now, it sits a bit too high because it doesn't have the motor and battery inside. So I modified the damper connector to lower the car, its lowered about 4mm. In the picture below you can see the difference between the standard one and mine (lower one is the modified one). You can download it down here.

Speaking of ride height, I actually first intended to make the ride height adjustable. That is why there is room for another servo. beside the steering servo. But while trying to work out that mechanics I forced myself to finish the rest of the project instead as it might have been a never-ending job otherwise. :) I thought that this could be added later on and just as you've done here, it can be done with modified damper structures. The trick is to find a mechanics that at least in the far low and far high-end does not transmit all of the force to the servo arm. I have yet to figure that one out in a way that also fits the tight space. :) For now it's drivable, and I much rather put that time into modelling something else. :)
