Guys this thread is for any of you that wish to collaborate your contribute towards the development of a permanent solution to the wheel slip issue.
Im going to be as transparent as possible.
Right now I found a manufacture that can make the wheel with a polycarbonate core or Tpu or metal. The issue is they wont move forward without at least $500 in sales. This is http://www.gallaghercorp.com/ they seem to know polyurethane very well and have the ability to bond it to almost anything.
Ive developed the insert in polycarbonate as well as the outer perimeter and the stepped edge infills using a 3d printer. Ive had issues with the casting epoxy resin bondjng to the form as well as expanding and creatjng air pockets.
I found a manufacture that can provide a 85a shore casting polyurethane thats perfect for the wheels but they sell in gallons at $180 per gallon and min order of $250.
What would you feel would generate a better solution for the community?
Option 1 and we get $500 bucks to get things rolling with gallagherg and we write a performance spec as well as cad drawings
Option 2 and we get half the amount and i continue to explore creating the wheels on my own using the resources i have at home?
