Second wheel 3d printed with PETG
3d-print robot lawnmower

PART 10 FRESH FROM THE PRINTER

Tonight Part 10 was finished, the second wheel for the Valify Robot lawnmower. The print took around 44h and conusmed approximately 550grams of PrimaSelect PETG filament. I was running this part with 3 shells and 15% infill because the wheel has to handle bumps and other forces. The part that came out OK. I could see minimal lifting / warping in one place and not sure if this will effect the wheel balance, Need to confirm that. Anyway the robot will drive on lawns and a couple of millimeters out of balance will not effect the overall driving.

All the biggest parts on the first “chassis” is now 3D printed. I have some mounting brackets and other minor details left. Other than that The Chassis-covers is left.
