This is a simplified, wooden model of a 1954 Ford F100 Monstertruck, inspired by the famous Tamiya RC model “Midnight Pumpkin”. It is based on my F100 Pickup Truck and designed to be milled from 8mm plywood. For the axles 6mm aluminium rod is required. You will also need to cut spacers for the axles with an inner diameter of 6mm and a height of 5mm to get the wheels away from the chassis. (Printed spacers also work fine!)

The wheels are 3D printed and consist of 3 parts. I used PLA for this with a Layer height of 0.1mm and 10% infill. The rim was painted separately.

Important Note: This model cannot be cut with a lasercutter!

To be able to see the comments and remarks on the *.DXF file, open it with a different application than “Estlcam” – Estlcam doesen’t show the text!

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
