OK this is my first ever remix of anything so it was a learning experience, I could have done some further improvements but in the end I’m happy enough with the end-result.

This is a mash up of many other projects the willy jeep and suspension frame is from “Mini Monster Willy” http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1958890

I split the frame from the jeep so I could print it separately and in different colour. After I printed my fist jeep I noticed the Steering wheel and shifters broke quite easily. I redesigned these to be thicker and stronger.
Next I borrowed the wheels from “Remix Mini Monster Truck w/ Rotating Wheels” http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1946877
Here I used the Emmett’s Gear Bearing wheels and tires
I modified the frame to accept the wheels and added a small cube to help the frame and Jeep body align correctly, it needs to be glued as I didn’t figure out a better way to get them to attach without glue.

Supports are needed for the frame and the steering wheel on the jeep the original design had it built-in but i decided to to add it manually through my slicer instead (great for me maybe not for others)

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!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
