Anyone 3D printing wheel splash guards?


#21

NO. it’s not caliber trucks…


#22

I developed one for 97mm wheels. Which can use a clamp for which any truck you need and some angle adjustment. It fit really good but when going over bumps it made the most hideous rattling sound so I immediately took them off and didn’t get around to designing a V2. Id rather get all wet than hear that sound again.

I think the issue was that it was too flexible and too close to the wheel so it would flex and kind of bounce on the wheel and make a terrible sound.


#23

Nicely done! Perhaps you could solve the rattling bye increasing the clearance between the wheel and the splash guard, it looks very close right now.


#24

did anyone ever get to printing these or trying? Perfect what i had envisioned… i tried downloading the file and isolating just the fenders but maybe im a noob…


#25

Just a heads up, I’ve been printing shields all last fall and they crack apart from the vibration super fast. I just use a sheet of lexan across the front and back now…


#26

How thick are the shields you’re printing? Mine are about 4mm and I smeared a light coating of silicone sealant on the underside.


#27

Very nice, the rubbing could be addressed by having it mounted on both sides? Two version
Regular width
Wider version to go pulley


#28

Exile boards came out with this one, though you might want to see these $33 ea carbon fiber

Its not on exile site. I stumbled on them on a site called “Sick Skateboards” and it was under parts or components


#29

thats not a bad idea… i may have to make a metal one


#30

will make a more dramatic fender

like the ones on ATVs or race cars


#31

How about side skirts I get a lot of inspiration through automotive design


#32

Not sure what these are

So does anyone have a 97mm wheel splash guard by now?

It rains here almost every day and when It stops I usually go for a ride and end up cleaning my boots for 20minutes and have to wash my pants lol
