NOTE: This is a concept model used for testing and a show model. Never ever use these as a replacement for the real thing! If you decide to try them out, be careful and use proper safety gear. Use at own risk.
This was a weekend project i did for fun and to get my mind of some other projects for a while.
I have printed both the Base and hanger aswell as the bushings. The skaterboard is a cheap one that i took the measurements form and used the existing screws, nuts and washers. There´s also a 195mm long M8 threaded rod that all the way thru that holds the wheel and basically the entire design is highly dependet on this rod. I have tried to take a differnt approach in regards of the orientation but you can print it anyway you like using support.
This one is printed in thick layers of Carbon Fiber infused Nylon with a high level of infill. Even though the CF will stabilize the "hanger" to a certain degree. Exposed to a high impact the Nylon will flex and the steel rod will most likely bend.

Anyway great fun as a concept model project.
