Re: AWS56 - 13th October, Bristol

Yo robodudes and dudettes, just wanted to drop in to say I will unfortunately not be able to attend this AWS. I'm on holiday next week, and apart from wanting a rest when I get back, I've also not had time to get anything built recently. I'm trying to focus on getting my heavyweight done before the ...

Re: What counts as a magnetic weapon?

What purpose would this serve in the robot? If you're doing something which could potentially be bending or breaking a rule, it's best to be completely clear and upfront with your intentions.

Re: Epic Robotics

Yup! Smaller and lighter than an N20 on it's own, never mind that it's also a wheel. The parts were ordered from Shapeways; they are too thin to print well on FDM machines really.

Re: Epic Robotics

Phew, it's been a while since I posted here! After attending the last AWS my motivation has returned, and that coupled with Void being pretty badly destroyed means I've been working on the design for the new one. You may recall - or read, if you scroll up - that I was a good way through building a n...

Re: Ofsted/my friendly uncle/I don't know

The rules do not specifically restrict that, but if it was at my event I would not allow it, and I would imagine many would feel the same. I would insist on either having separate attachments for both, or if for example you only had a single spinner attachment, I would make you nominate which robot ...

Re: 20th August 2016 - The Oxford Games, Carterton

I'm sorry to say I won't be able to make it. I've wanted to do an event like this for a while, but unfortunately this falls on the only weekend where I was able to book somewhere for mine and my partner's anniversary. I hope everyone has a fun day and I look forward to seeing the videos :)

Re: Cheap components for an antweight class

Thanks Alex, that's great. I'll take this list to them later in the week and see what they think :).
