This wind-up car gift card is the ideal present for your loved ones. Everything on this wind-up toy car is 3D-printable, the spring, shafts, gears, wheels, everything! There are no other parts/tools necessary except for your 3D-printer and some filament (although a small hamer and a knife would be usefull but not necessary).You can make you loved ones happy by giving them a nice present and on the same time you can show them what is possible with 3D-printing.The print time for gift card 1 (the one with the most parts) is about 4 hours. The print time for gift card 2 (the one with the wheels) is about 2 hours. I decided to print them with 100 percent infill because there wasn't that much of a difference with 25 percent infill, the print time was about the same. Another reason for 100 percent infill is that the spring is being printed better.

Excellent work on this! The inclusion "runners" like you'd see in injection molded model airplane kits is a really nice touch. Give it a nostalgic element that really draws me in.
