We provide a Make-Assemble-Setup guide explaining how to use computer controlled equipment to make the parts for your design.
Laser cutting – Car chassis and flat components for the speed controller can be cut out of 3mm acrylic using a laser cutter.
CNC machining – We show you how to use CNC milling machines and routers to cut the molds for bodies and casings.
3D printing – These machines open up many more possibilities for different shapes and PTC Creo will produce the STL files for transferring designs.
Parts packs – Scalextric provides parts packs for the cars at cost price. Add some acrylic for the chassis and HIPS for the body and a finished tutorial car costs less than £2 GBP ($3 USD).
Speed control circuits – Efficient, programmable PWM speed control circuits are available to build into your own designs.
