Default T-14 Armata 1/16

Hi,
i have more time as usual, can post few bits of my work.
I dont think i am scale modeller, just a 3D print guy.
Designing and 3D printing for long time, with passion for tanks.
Have designed static model of T-14 Armata, just to put that on shelf.
Wanted a RC tank for years, so designing of T-14 was longer as expected.

There was one prototype from printed from PLA and equipped with RX-18, but was melted on the direct sun on the first show.
Suspenions was **** and there was a lack of features.

After one year of work, i have received some new photos of the T-14.
Have redesigned a whole vehicle, part by part with far more accurate outer body, lot of new functions and reworks.
Some of the parts was redesigned about 8-10 times.

My current T-14 Armata was printed from ASA and PET(G), tires and mudguards from TPE and front lights from PMMA.

Its a huge and i love that beast.
Some of the changes in comparsion with prototype build:

- completely reworked outer body
- optimized suspension system
- new mounts for suspensions
- better mounting for smoke generator
- new universal mounts for gearboxes, all holes ale blinded now
- universal sytem for cables organization added
- on/of switch under the hatch
- optimized traces for front lights cables (2 ways for every light)
- machinegun turret rotation system
- upper engine cover equipped with Mato MF3010 speakers
- FPV on the side of the canon
- 2 different miniturrets (with 360 rotation or solid for IR battles )
- all rubber on tank is printed from flex
- servo-controlled canon

Using XTC-3D for surface finishing.I have installed Elmod PRO to the second T-14 because i have 4 servos in turret (and because is much better).
Its designed to be equipped with wide range of heng-long/torro mechanic parts.long or short shaft gearboxes of different shapes (i have tried 4 types).HL airsoft or recoil unit (or servo controlled canon) etc.i can use HL T-90 tracks too, but i like my printed tracks (ABS).


Let me post some pictures of prints at first.

It was builded in 2018.

The quality of your printed parts for your Armata, as with the 38(t) Hetzer, is amazing! Excellent work!

Thank you very much.All my printers are focused on the quality.Printing slowly with high quality printers and materials.

Using a lot of Anycubic stuff.
Highly modified Anycubic Kossel Delta (two pieces), a little bit modified Anycubic 4max (waiting for another upgrades, but far less modified in comparsion with Kossels), Anycubic Photon-S and my own home-made printer (oldest one).

As i have said - focused on slow prints with 0,1 - 0,12mm layers and 0,3mm nozzles.24 or 36 hours are usual times for biggest parts.30-40mm/s.


Have found another pictures.Wheels/tracks assembly.Printed with ASA and TPE.
