Inventor Ivan Miranda specializes in 3D-printed projects, and his latest is a massive tank that you can actually ride inside of. Yes, all of the parts have been printed, and took weeks to do so. There are electronics inside that make it move, including a battery bank and motors. Plus, when Miranda is actually inside, the tank can be remote controlled. Read more for a video and additional information.
The original plan wast o use brushless motors and VESCs (Vedder Electronic Speed Controller), similar to those found in drones, and to improve performance, an ODrive motor controller was added. The tank itself is using 24V, which means that it can push 2,400 watts per motor, or more than enough for going off-road. Miranda uses the PWM output from an RC receiver to drive the tank using an RC remote transmitter from inside or outside the tank.
