    Thanks for the comment! I got motivated after watching some 3D printed motorcycle models but the chain wasn't working on those.
    So I have decided to make a bike with working chain and kind of carried away with the details as I was making it haha.

    Wow!!!

    Would like to 3D Print one like that for myself...

    Why?
    1. Because I do not have one.
    2. To see if it could be 3D Printed on My 3D PRinter.
    3. To 3D Print a Chain for a working 3D Model

    haha thanks for the comment, you got some fair points there!
    You should be able to find some working non bike models with chain on Thingiverse I assume (Not sure if you would be able to find a bike model with working chain, but I am sure there are 3D model bikes (not on thingiverse) with chain which you just have to modify to be able to 3d print)

    Right now I am planning multiple things for my Youtube such as giving away the files after reaching certain goals and giving away the physical model and such.

    Stay tuned and please be patient as I am only doing this projects and youtube during my spare time.

    I went looking after seeing your model could not find anything near as good.

    If you post your You-Tube Channel, so we can keep up to date when you get it started...
    I can help you along by re-posting it to four other 3D Printer forum's if you would like...

    say it ain't so !
    can't believe you're seeing other forums behind our back !
    Just, devastated :-(

    Chain wise I designed a cable chain that would certainly print small enough to work as a model bike chain.
    As long as you get a good solid connection between the links, it's pretty easy to do.
