Hi e-riders !
more bla bla...
For the little story, last year in January 2018 I open Amadride, to continue making some fully customized esk8 for French e-riders, with all the parts available around the world with all the shop and good parts we get access to. But this time with some participation (after more than 2 years, receiving/helping/and building for people at home around a beer or two or more…).
But I just put it in pause (after my move, I’m finishing one last concept for an esk8fr builder), because all custom R2R esk8, take a lot looot loooooot of time (I know you know it ^^) and people want them for yesterday, with the most options and the lower price… I was only doing it by passion!
Now, it’s time … to take time for me ^^ and continue all my personal project too.
But Amadride isn’t finished yet I would focus on some specific parts now .
(I passed and worked a lot of time on modeling, it’s why I will not share everything on Thingiverse, but the most appropriate and easiest part printable).
Little story short, since the start of the year, I’m hardly thinking about how to produce those things … but it’s really hard to get a fair price when you don’t really know where to go (wath material, what technology etc), with small production and alone…
And it’s here that I need you !!
I need help from someone here, even best if he is a known one and a bit active member maybe, that is also interested in making it happened for the community, in collab with me, and it will be for all kind of stuff/add-ons/gears he/you want to focus on (actually working on some Haggy stuff mostly, I’m finishing the press-fit pulley with @riverside.rider for TB218 and Supercarve compatibility (55T sound good…). And maybe e-toxx stuff soon, with Evolve, Torqueboard too already on the way and 3DSas like the Nano/Mini Gear Drive adaptor for Bergmeister AT wheels I have already made). Maybe one person per gears/project could also be an idea/solution… Maybe you also got more or another idea ?? I hope so
Here are some 1st things I got in mind :
Bumper / Fender / pulley cover, I can have them made from Nylon PA12 and directly sent to you from the online production (I update with prices shortly) :
Bumper, I will share 3 design (on Thingiverse soon)
Bumper + pulley cover for Senior Pepe (on Thingiverse soon)
Bumper + pulley cover for Bergmeister AT wheels
Fender + bumper
Fender + Bumper + pulley cover for Senior Pepe
Fender + Bumper + pulley cover for Bergmeister AT wheels
Mudguard … here is another issue. I won’t share it cause printed it will never maintain the purpose. (but maybe just the base/holding system… if it lowers nicely the global price)
I would make produce them.
I was thinkings about @fottaz 's advice (who handle the ABS vacuum process like a boss for years now!) about the feasibility of the project regarding the design? What do you think Alberto? Could it be done in ABS with a vacuum process?
Maybe @Leo (who just post an enclosure, very clean) maybe you have some tips too?
Also the 1st gen (screwed) of Bergmeister pulley with differents number of theets, for TB218 and Supercarve, on my Thingiverse next week (the 60T already available since a long time).
Now, that I make a pause on custom Amadride Boards, I will make some MadBox.
Actually working the last one for Unity, it’s on the waiting list for the next proto-print (@Necromenz future beta tester right?).
So I now got them for Focbox/VESC6/ESCape/Dual Escape/FSESC6.6 single with heatsink (2 types)/Unity.
Here, as well already can make some (around a month of delay), I hope to could find better price or solution too.
For now, I got : Shape/cover from …€ (black Nylon PA12)
Heatsink …€ raw (color anodizing basic CMJN +…€, special color +…€)
Base plate …€ (black) + hardware
Here is some examples of some samples my machinist that he has already produced for me from some years now :
I have thinking about Shapeways … or even IndieGoGo and other things like that, but I would also at 1st have your feed of view
Now I hope we can find a better solution to make you enjoy all this at the best value for money!!
What do think ?
In your turn, go, I’m listening to you!
