More tires


After the 13 mile fiasco, some documentation of tire compression with a typical payload. It clearly is a matter of traction vs stiffness. The flat treads need a lot more material to be as hard as the curved treads, but are necessary for any traction.

A tire with a slightly curved tread didn't get any stiffer. Changing the number & straightness of the spokes didn't make a significant difference. Putting the extra spoke material into more tread thickness might make it stiffer. Printing spoked tires with .4mm layers takes only 2.5 hours.

There is a new honeycomb design with a flat tread & integrated motor mount, but it takes 10 hours & the lion kingdom is low on filament again.
