Micro Pinwheel Racers


Summary Have you ever wanted to harness the power of the wind?, No? Well you will now with these racers. Simply make a hole using tinkercad and put in a pinwheel and watch it go. What makes it even better is that it is completely open for customization, you can make it anything you want. Want to throw a flux capacitor in there? go right ahead if you are brave enough. You can even go crazy and add two pinwheels to it. Warning!: Adding two pinwheels can cause the racer to warp into hyper drive. Attempt this at your own risk, I am not a responsible for any dimensional travel. UPDATE: Holy Flying Tuna Fish Batman!!!!!, the Bat Mobile has entered the pinwheel race. Update 2: I have adjusted the scaling on the files and have elongated the body as well as increased the size and rounded out the wheels. The axles also were made longer and shaped better. The new files are under the updated zip. The top shell covers now all have to be re-scaled to match the bottom base. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93u7taaW8h4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2IHvJWiUzR4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qfawDkBtnOs

Instructions Simply insert axle in and glue the tires to it. Make a hole on the top base before printing using tinkercad or your preferred software. Then you can connect the top and bottom base however you may like, whether its glue or tape. Lastly, simply insert any store bought pinwheel and let it get some wind. Customize the top base however you want and make it yours. Make it a tank, plane, or even a T-rex (awesome), the possibilities are endless. Future Update will contain a bat mobile kit.
