Back at it with a new concept a 6WD bot, experimenting with gears, and possibly wheel making.

I like the look of the 6wd bot, always good to see more people experimenting!

On the printed chassis it's nice but that's some really bad warping at the back.

Yeah the guy mentioned that the back corners curved up a bit due to shrinkage, but he'll refund me if find it to be bad once I've check in person.

Just for future reference how would I go about avoiding that on future prints?

Manual support structures in the print.

Essentially you want to eliminate any sharp points (Corners), thin edges or just areas of low surface area in contact with the bed of the printer. Green shows the manual support added for later removal.

Ah such a simple solution, thanks for the heads up.
