January 2015 Hacker of the Month- Isaac Thompson
We love all the innovative and creative projects our 3d printing community members are producing. We love them so much we would like to take the opportunity to highlight them. Introducing Hacker of the Month! A new Hacker of the Month will be featured each month in our newsletter as well as on our social media platforms. The winner also receives one free roll of PRO series ABS or PLA filament.
And now, for the moment we have been waiting for, we would like to introduce our first ever Hacker of the Month...Isaac Thompson! Thompson has wowed us with his RC Car 1/10th Scale Track Conversion Setup - a set of 3D printed parts that converts regular 'ol RC car into a lean mean snow-traveling machine.
"I chose to create it because the three existing commercial solutions are expensive, model specific, don't look to scale, and don't have many track lug patterns available" Thompson said.
Thompson, whose been printing two years, says the product has been tested on the Gmade Sawback 52000m Crawler, but it easily adapts to any other 1/10th scale truck. He also has installed a set with skis on a Duratrax 2WD Truck.
Thompson plans to make his for sale and welcomes people to contact him. To contact Thompson, please email Nhfreeride@gmail.com or see http://www.scale4x4rc.org/forums/showthread.php?t=79184
