3d print T34
« on: November 08, 2021, 01:15:44 PM »
Hi

I am printing my first tank. Great project from 3dprintedtanks! I am new to this hobby, i made lot of rc truck and some plane but never rc tank. I made some search for mainboard and they appear that they are very expensive !! taigen tanks is economical choice but no configuration option.. so tcb will be my choice. i take time to find alternatives for compomnent obsol├Ęte or out of stock. I will have to ordre them but i have time! printing these tank take time!

Good luck with your project. Yes, I've printed several tanks and they run around 400 hours of print time or more. You'll have plenty of time for research!

You're off to a good start! Keep us updated on your progress. I don't know what you plan for the TCB. I usually don't recommend people trying to assemble their own, even though of course the design is freely available, but it is not a simple process and I don't want people to become frustrated when their board doesn't work. Also right now it is very difficult to get certain necessary components due to the global chip shortage. However if you can find an Arduino-compatible Mega board then you can get quite a few features working without too much extra work. This thread is the place to start reading about that: Testing TCB Firmware with Stock Arduino Mega

Also if you are able to upload your pictures in JPG format that would be better than PDF!

i work in electronic so assembling pcb is not a problem. its easy to find mosfet or capacitance with same value than the one you used. for the mega2650 they seem to have some in allie express. I will see in time but thanks for the link I will rend it

when you talk about assembling the tcb is there common problem or if I follow the drawing everything should be ok? ( in the case that my assembly is good)

If you follow the schematic and Bill of Materials and succeed in getting everything soldered/reflowed correctly you will be fine. There is no common problem, but you need a lot of experience with this kind of surface mount assembly and most people have not done it before. I ruined many boards myself before I got good enough and those were very expensive lessons! Also if your board doesn't work it is very hard for me to help you troubleshoot since there are so many things that could have gone wrong during assembly that I will not know about it. Therefore I generally discourage people from trying this, but I won't say absolutely don't do it.
