@videogame95 You are posting on someone else's introductory post. Also, there is more than one Dave. Click the reply link, or quote link at the bottom right of their post (the one you are replying to)

Did you know Bill (dronebot-workshop) has a similar car/project? Why not use that so you can get support here? Here is Bills link to the article and YT.

Article   https://dronebotworkshop.com/mecanum/

Video 

The Article is where you will find the wiring instructions, and the code. The video is nice eye candy but you need the article for the full instructions.

Here is where you want to start a new Topic explaining what you are trying to do. If you say you want to build Bill's Mecannum car, then we will understand. Now tell us where the error is.

First computer 1959. Retired from my own computer company 2004.
Hardware - Expert in 1401, and 360, fairly knowledge in PC plus numerous MPU's and MCU's
Major Languages - Machine language, 360 Macro Assembler, Intel Assembler, PL/I and PL1, Pascal, Basic, C plus numerous job control and scripting languages.
My personal scorecard is now 1 PC hardware fix (circa 1982), 1 open source fix (at age 82), and 2 zero day bugs in a major OS.

Hi Dave (from Vancouver B) @blockhead,

  Welcome to the forum. As you will already seen, there are others who are also interested in various aspects of making things, and some (including me, in a very small and 'just starting' way) are using Fusion 360 for 3D printing, as part of that process.

I am sorry that @videogame95 seems to have written into your introduction thread. I think he saw my handle (@davee), and mixed that up with you as another Dave. One of the hazards of having a name like Dave I find.

I'll reply to him, and hopefully get straight soon. In the meantime, I look forward to any words of wisdom or experience you can offer on 3D printing (and anything else.)

Best wishes, Dave

Hi @videogame95,

  As Ron (@zander) points out, you may have confused me (@davee) with another newcomer to the forum, whose name is also Dave, and who introduced himself in this thread. Never mind, we all (especially me) make mistakes, so let's see if we can get a little more organised.

Please start a new thread, being careful to put it in a section that is appropriate.

-------------------------------------------

Looking at your recent replies, I can see you have identified two possibilities, one by Bill (@dronebot-workshop) with Mecanum wheels, the other using a simpler mechanical basis with fixed axle and 'conventional wheels'.

Inevitably, as you mention, the Mecanum wheels one is likely to be more expensive.

I do not have either, so I can't advise from direct experience. However, I would find Bill's 'calm' video style, plus the accompanying blog, much easier to follow. At best, I would continually need to 'pause and rewind' the other video. I would also be confident Bill's version would work, as I can see the effort and quality he puts into his productions.  That is not to say, the other one does not work, but simply that the presenter is not 'known' to me, so in the event of problems, I would expect to have to do a lot of head scratching, and fix it myself.

-----------------------------------------

I am not presently planning to build this, but if I were, I would probably look to AliExpress to source most of the parts. One of the main reasons being that I have found, with some careful choices, it is possible to get parts shipped from China more cheaply than from anywhere else. Of course, there are some risks, including some items are total junk and/or take forever to arrive, so this only a suggestion at your risk. However, I can see a bill of £40 is probably a reasonable guess for all the parts, including delivery and taxes.

....

I look forward to your thoughts and questions in a new thread.

Best wishes, Dave
