This is how I roll...

I printed a plastic wheel hub and wheel molds with integrated funnel. If you want to make custom wheels like these you need to cast them using mold rubber. They have a variety of rubbers you can use to get tackier or more durable wheels.

More information about the casting process and how to use it is available on Smooth-On's website. The resin casting plastic is also very interesting for custom robot parts.

Any info on where I can find the small spur gears for the regular Armatron, or what I need to mold my own?
