My first prints have arrived! I made my Swirly Hearts in 3 depths and had one of each printed; one in steel, one in plastic and one in polished brass . The steel one came out slightly bigger than I thought it'd be :p

3D printing is cool (:

I would prefer the 50mm version, the details are finer there. Good job!

No doubt, but there is still something really charming about the smaller sized one too! xD

This working prototype is the result of lots of hard work, a few print iterations, a TON of design iterations and a bit of dumb luck (in the form of a few lucky guesses)
Link to Car
I was very excited pulling this little toy car out of the box when it finally arrived and have been quite surprised by its performance after only a few actual prints of the whole wind-up gear box system! (I was surprised it moved at all)

At this point in time the car only moves about 50cm once fully wound up but i hope to increase this distance in the future!

This Wind-up toy car is printed in one piece in white strong and flexible and comes with it's own key.
It can be wound up with the key, or by simply pulling the car back.

The wind up car at the moment is available in Beta as i'm trying to work out a few kinks
(the main one being the fact that the car required quite a bit of manual cleaning to get the parts moving)

Through the Beta processes i'm looking for any suggestions to improve this design!
(I have already uploaded an update that improves some aspects)

Take a look at the pics and video!
