I really like the portable changing tents for cover.  We bought a bunch of them for $20 a piece a while back.  Seems like the price went up for summer: https://jet.com/prod...72-3249d6af173f
Being out in the country will complicate things.  Have you already tried seeing if there's a group near you that you could get a ride to?

Can someone please chime in and tell me the differences between the Fang Revamped motors and the Neo Rhinos??

Neo Rhinos have more torque due to running on 3s voltage instead of 2s.  All this really means is they rev .16 seconds faster than the fang revamps with Cyclone wheels (on the heavy side, lighter wheels will have less of a difference).

I am the maker of the motors.  Please do not use any 14500 batteries with aftermarket motors.  It is dangerous even with "safe" chemistries as the cell can vent hot gasses when you overload the battery.  This will melt a big ole hole in your fancy new blaster and possibly your hand.  I have heard of 2 instances of IMR cells venting in our hobby and melting a hole in the blaster.

This allows the end user to decide what level of infill they want on their print. Each section of the shell is no longer than 9 inches, making it compatible with the majority of the entry-level machines.


I could be wrong, but I believe the most common bed size is 200x200mm which is just under 8 inches squared.    Also, there's MeshMixer as well as other applications that allow you to cut STL files into smaller pieces for printing.    Here's a tutorial on how to cut files with Meshmixer.

Edit:  I cut it in two pieces and threw it into my slicer for my larger printer.  Stats are with 20% infill and 3 outer walls as well as 3 top and 3 bottom walls.  My printer is about 5-10% slower than the slicer thinks it is, so it'd be a 15 hour print per side, and use a little more than 1/4 of a spool of filament.  I don't know what kind of spring loads it would handle, and my large printer is down at the moment.



Edit again:  Forget the previous numbers, forgot to add support material because the internal structure would need it, and I had my speed set way too high for reasonable quality.  Now it's like a 30 hour print because my printer is not very fast due to the huge bed causing more sway than typical printers. :\
