Band-IT Dragster Meeting Directions | MatterHackers

The Band-IT part elements could also be downloaded and printed at Band-IT Dragster.  Observe these directions to learn to assemble your dragster as soon as all of the parts are printed.


The Band-IT consists of 17 complete parts:  16 which can be printed and a rubber band (approximate 6 inches / 16mm in size) that could be bought individually (see Determine 1).  5 of the parts shall be duplicated and several other of the parts could also be fabricated collectively in a single print.

Determine 1

Determine 2 reveals the parts that may should be printed individually as one batch. These must be printed with 90-100% infill since they are going to be subjected to probably the most stress. In any other case, the remainder of the parts could also be printed utilizing an ordinary infill.

As a word earlier than meeting, becoming a member of parts mustn’t want any adhesive for the reason that elements had been designed to have a superb quantity of rigidity as soon as joined.  Nonetheless, one could need to place adhesive within the joints the place parts could come beneath some stress, e.g. between axles and wheels and alongside the body of the dragster.  This feature is left as much as the discretion of the fabricator.  The next are an inventory of steps in assembling the dragster.

Step 1:  Insert the rubber band pin into the rear axle (Figures 3 and 4).

Determine 4

Step 2:  Insert the rear axle pin into the big wheel (Figures 5 and 6).  This must be achieved for every massive wheel.

Determine 6

Step 3:  Safe the rubber band to the entrance part of the dragster body (Figures 7 and eight).  The rubber band must be looped by the outlet within the cross bar of the body and pulled taut.

Determine 7

Determine 8

Step 4:  Align the entrance of the body with the rear body part in preparation for the body joiner part insertion (Determine 9).

Determine 9

Step 5:  Place each body joiners into the slots on the entrance and rear frames (Determine 10). This joiner aids in maintaining the total body collectively.

Determine 10

Step 6:  Place the 2 u-shaped physique connectors on the highest a part of every leg of the body meeting (Figures 11, 12, 13 and 14).  These parts help in maintaining the body stiff and simulates the underside a part of dragster physique parts to be designed sooner or later.

Step 7:  Take the entrance axle and place it within the gap on one small wheel (Figures 15 and 16).

Determine 15

Determine 16

Step 8:  Place the one small wheel and axle meeting by the holes within the entrance of the body (Determine 17).

Determine 17

Step 9:  Take the remaining small wheel and fasten it to the entrance axle that has been inserted into the body (Figures 18 and 19).

Determine 18

Determine 19

Step 10:  Place the rear axle meeting within the rear of the body meeting between the holes within the rear of the body (Determine 20).  This shall be in preparation for attachment of the 2 massive wheel assemblies.

Determine 20

Step 11:  Connect every rear wheel meeting into the sq. holes on every finish of the rear axle (Figures 21, 22, 23 and 24).

Determine 21

Determine 22

Determine 23

Determine 24

Step 12:  Place the rubber band backlash guard on to the dragster body (Figures 25 and 26).

Determine 25

Determine 26

The Band-it Dragster is now utterly assembled.  To offer propulsion for the dragster, place the rubber band on the pin of the rear axle (Figures 27 and 28).  Rotate the rear wheel meeting to coil the rubber band across the rear axle.  Now you might be free to let it go and see how far the dragster can journey.
