WiFi Controlled Mark IV Tank 3D Printed

Hello builders,

that is my redesign of the British army’s original Mark IV tank from WWI. I hope you enjoy it. I designed this robot for half a year. It was my first thing I ever designed. I had a lot of setbacks, but I finally made it. I build it for a science competition, but I didn’t nail it in time. Furthermore, I designed it in Tinkercad. First, I was awful in the designing. I mean really awful. And I thought Tinkercad is the best 3D design program in the world. I had a lot of trouble getting the right tolerances. But now I know it better. It was a hard time designing it because the program isn’t the best program for doing complex designs with a lot of tight tolerances. I threw a lot of filaments away, but I think it was worth it. So now you can make the finished model yourself.
