UniVesc: Building your own EUC.

Recommended Posts

That's a cool project, definitely worth following to see how his next suspension wheel works out.

Probably the biggest downside with 3D printing the shell (and gluing the assembly together) is the parts are only strong(ish) along XY plane and less so along the z-axis due to the layer bonding effect. Too many random out of plane forces are imparted in wrecks and even vibration from normal use going over the road & uneven surfaces can cause large 3D-printed semi-structural parts used like this to delaminate or crack over time. For long term use, it'd be better to go with a filament that doesn't weaken from UV exposure too. That said, looks like a great proof of concept and learning experience.

Impressive getting the VESC controller to function for EUC use too.
