It’s after midnight…so…technically it’s tomorrow now right?

Hey, it’s Friday and I can sleep in tomorrow…I couldn’t let this design just sit and not get printed:

I think this might be viable…It does squish a bit much…but I only printed the tire at 15% infill and 3 perimeters. At 6 perimeters it would be basically solid through the center where most of the load is.

Getting the tire on was a bit tricky but not overly so…getting it off…I don’t think is going to happen. With more perimeters getting it on will be trickier but I think still doable.

Though I think the center needs to be modified a bit…there’s no room for a spacer between the bearings…but would I even need one…I need to find a “real” wheel to compare with…
