Leon van der Beukel's model
It was just a matter of time before model forklifts and 3D printing intersected, but a Dutch computer whiz has come up with a tiny remote model that almost anyone with a suitable printer can assemble.

Leon van der Beukel has designed the working model with a few servos and a pair of geared DC motors, and an Arduino Mega control system.

The forks are fully functional, allowing the mini forklift to pick up mini pallets and drop them elsewhere.

You can watch the build here and download everything you need to print your own here. And if any readers do build one, please send us pictures of the completed project.
