Buggster Upgrade for Model 7

$25.00

This product is an Upgrade for your Model 7: Buggy . The Buggster Upgrade allows you to print & build road racer Buggster combining parts from your current Model 7: Buggy with the Buggster Upgrade parts. This Upgrade is huge – about 90% of parts are new (just the front axle is the same except the shocks mount) and allows you to combine all parts together in various ways! Imagine creating an open-roof Buggy, or attach the bodywork Rear End with a proper Engine Hood. Or vice versa – build a Buggster with a sedan body! Engage your imagination and build your own variant.

You can build a new model, or disassemble your current model and re-build it to Buggster – choose what you prefer.

3D Sets’s first road racer! Model 8: Buggster brings these features:

  • Prusa Mini/MK3 compatible
  • 1/8 scale, identical to other 3D Sets models
  • On-road capabilities, tire tracks may occur in the interior 😉
  • Rear Wheel Drive & independent wheel suspension
  • Functional Differential – unique design with regular bearings inside
  • Durable and quiet belt transmission (3D Sets BeltDrive)
  • Easy maintenance/repair – axles and windscreen can be easily detached
  • Ready for lights installation

 

Model 8: Buggster is 3d printable set of parts for your 3d printer. The model is approx. 56 cm long (1:8 scale) and is ready for your RC equipment.

It can be used both indoors/outdoors and have enough torque and power to drift.

Description

Buggster Upgrade for Model 7


The model brings these new features:

 

  • 3D Sets BeltDrive – the transmission solution is durable, simple, and quiet because it uses timing belts.

  • Differential – 3D Sets developed unique design of opened differential for best on-road capabilities. The differential is integrated right into the BeltDrive pulley and its special design doesn’t require any metal shafts or other tiny parts – everything is done using standard bearings, used in every 3D Sets model.

  • Replaceable Windscreen – this model is a convertible and maybe you will break the windscreen frame someday – rollovers may happen during careless riding. But don’t worry: the windscreen assembly can be easily replaced as it’s not a part of the bodywork!

  • HD Surface Details – this technique is used for incredibly fine surface structures of the folded roof and seats.

  • Modular Bodywork and parts – if you have Model 7: Buggy too, you can combine all parts together! Imagine creating an open-roof Buggy, or attach the bodywork Rear End with a proper Engine Hood. Or vice versa – build a Buggster with a sedan body! Engage your imagination and build your own variant.

  • Easy maintenance – the front and rear axles are attached with just a few screws and can be very easily removed from the model. An integral part of the rear axle is the transmission with engine and ESC – the entire drive system can be removed from the body in one movement.

  • Easy-to-disassemble – Metal nuts are now embedded for repeatedly disassembled or stressed joints. Removing the axles is now much more convenient.

  • Double Wishbone suspension – independently suspended front axle wheels with sophisticated wheel geometry. Axle is designed to work with 50-65 mm long shocks with short travel. The axle uses a system of fully printed 3D Sets ball joints and is optimized for higher impact resistance.

  • Truly functional 3D printed door handles – not for show, but prevent the door from opening while driving. Safety first!

  • HD Surface Details – this technique is used for incredibly fine surface structures of the folded roof and seats.

  • Preparation for the functional lights – the lights have prepared cavities for LED diodes, cable glands are prepared in the model.

  • Highly detailed model of the engine – the engine covers the moving parts of the gearbox and it is possible to experiment with color by changing the filament during printing.

  • Innovative battery box with easy opening with rotary locks, easily accessible from the bottom of the model.

  • Many new details – e.g. realistic emboss on the inner parts of bodywork, interior trims, fuel tank in the trunk, and more.
