Palmiga Innovation – Caresto AB – OpenrR/C -Tires

Thomas Palm from Rubber3Dprinting.compalmiga.com teams up with Leif Tufvesson from Caresto AB to be able to contribute with yet another tire design to the open source OpenR/C Formula 1 project by Daniel Norée.

Leif is restoring classic cars as well as designing and building Hot Rods, sports cars and special really unique cars. With a background as a technician at Volvo Research and Development Department in Gothenburg and then six years with development at Koenigsegg, he decided to spend all his time with his own company and to develop and manufacture his own cars in small series. Check him out here: http://www.caresto.se/

This tire design is based on Leif Tufvesson´s tires from the HOT ROD JAKOB (and also the color scheme of the OpenR/C Formula 1 as you can see below).

This is Caresto´s way of combining the classical original Volvo Jakob from 1927 with modern technology and design into a Hot Rod of today. This car was built to celebrate Volvos 80 years anniversary. After documenting the original in detail, Caresto had the "Hot Rod of the Year" and "Most Innovative Car" award in mind for the HOT ROD JAKOB. The car attended in the Elmia exhibition 2009 and today you can find the car at Volvos Museum in Gothenburg. HOT ROD JAKOB has also been featured in many magazines since 2009.

P.S. Very soon you will be flabbergasted when seeing Caresto´s next build! Palmiga Innovation had the privilege to deliver 3 pieces of flexible 3D prints to that project.

“To be part of such a fantastic project is a once in a lifetime experience (but one can always hope for more;)”

Stay tuned!
