A YouTube user builds a remote-controlled snow plow using 3D printing technology

YouTube channel “Blows of ambition” A new video showed how a utility mission vehicle (UTV) is converted into a remote-controlled vehicle using 3D printing technology. This project demonstrates the possible applications of 3D printing in automotive technology and provides insight into the practical implementation of complex modifications.

The goal of the project was to convert a UTV to be able to carry and operate a snow plow without needing a person to actually control the vehicle. By integrating standard electronic components and custom-designed, 3D-printed parts, Ambition Strikes has developed a system that enables remote control of steering, throttle and brakes.

A particular challenge lies in developing the connectors that connect the electronic components to the mechanical elements of the vehicle. 3D printing played a crucial role here. The YouTube user designed and printed holders and adapters for the project. This ensures precise contact between the servos, actuators, pedals and steering wheel. These parts are designed using CAD software and produced using a 3D printer.

One of the innovative elements of the project was the creation of a 3D printed molar. The pinion is specially designed to adapt to the steering wheel. With this development, it is possible to make a perfect translation between the servo and the steering mechanism.

Initial test drives on the YouTuber's farm showed that the self-built system works perfectly. Accelerator, brake and steering can be operated accurately and reliably via radio control. The next step was to attach a snow shovel to the vehicle to remove snow from the driveway leading up to the house. This project was also successful and the UTV was able to push large amounts of snow aside using the remote control.
