The project PistenBully was started at Christmas 2016 while we watched a monster at work. The idea actually is to get also some snowmill and attachments for it.
My design is based on the PistenBully 300 and 600 Kässbohrer – I hope they are not too angry on me therefor. But they’re really cool!!
The construction is simple, all components can be printed in PLA and TPU. You can choose to do the support by yourself or use the one I’ve done in the designs. Except for the cabin. However, I have already modeled a part for the upper cabin area, which can be removed after printing. So support only for the lower part is necessary. All further details are shown in the assembly instructions (please check the PDF “Montageanleitung PistenBully.pdf”! English version is following).
I’ve ordered my equipment including the bearings at Banggood. But it is also available at your local dealer…
Have fun and I hope you’ll enjoy!
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!
