Hello Matt,

I hope that all is going well for you and your new wife. I am still having trouble locating a set of wheels for my Robie Jr. unit. I was wondering if you have picked up making replacements again? If so, I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to get ahold of a set.

thanks!

Hi Matt,

what did you use for your grey treads?

I have the silicone molds done (left the idea of silicone for the treads since my first molds were destroyed by the silicone for the treads - silicone on silicone got just stuck together).

I had the chance to get the exact same material you used for your treads - just waiting for it to arrive here and I will start out making black treads for Omni 2k and Omni Jr.! Cant wait!

Any luck with the reproduction of the gears?

Hey @won4all. I'm currently making some tires for other folk as we speak and I have a spare set of Robbie Jr tires if you are still looking?

@mike looks like you are making some good progress. I found the same when I tried silicone, but this polyurethen rubber works perfect. The only thing I'm still struggling with is finding the perfect blue. I really want one like Josh's tires, but everything I try either comes out too translucent or almost black.

I've not really got anywhere with gear reproduction yet, things have slowed down quite a bit (My wife has started working with me so all the robots have been relegated from the office:)

I'm surprised there isn't a piggy bank set for a new 3d printer yet;)

Ha ha, where is the fun in having a machine make everything for you. I'd rather know how to make things myself. I'm hoping to make a life sized wall-e at some point, so need to get my welding / metal work skills up to par:)

Is it too much to ask for it all?:)

Hello All,

I need tire treads for my Omnibot 2000 as well. Seems this thread is old and not a lot of resources of places to get these. Plus I need new rubber pieces on the talons/claws on my Omnibot 2000. Any ideas out there? Thanks much!

Hi @ryanm

If you have access to a 3D printer (and designer) you could use flexible filament and reproduce the wheels and gripping surfaces. Otherwise common waterproofing (rubber) tape + glue could be another possible solution.

maybe you can use the treads of a roli for making tires or make tank treads.

Thank you for the input Jeremie & Nomad...I have been checking out eBay and I definitely will keep looking around for solutions. I think a parted out Omnibot will be my easier option.
