Re: T_Y's Build Log

This will be a bit of an infodump. So I've been working on the new flipper, which I'm calling Blue Screen of Death (gotta keep those computing related names coming!). I'm trying to take what I've learned with Hello, World! to improve the design. https://i.imgur.com/AXSV44O.png https://i.imgur.com/ki...

Re: Team Roland build diary

Congrats on the good performance of your bots. Nemesis was definitely a scary one to fight! It's death hum is terrifying!

Re: DisinfectANT - Antweight First Build Log

That wedge is oh so beautiful! I love the whole look of the bot. Can't wait to see it built!

Re: T_Y's Build Log

So I went to Sheffield last Sunday to take part in a Robodojo/Sheffield Roboteers event, which was incredibly enjoyable! So the problems started even before the first fight. I brought HYTTIOAOA for its first run, and an hour before the event, I realised it was a few mm too long. That was simple enou...

Re: T_Y's Build Log

HYTTIOAOA is coming along nicely. I really like how the wheels have turned out. We'll have to see if they're any good! https://i.imgur.com/6yx2qs1.jpg The shell is cut out and bolted together. I had to do a couple of revisions on the motor stand-offs to make it easy enough to screw them into place. ...

Re: T_Y's Build Log

If everything goes to plan, yes! I'll be bringing all 3 bots (Hello, World!, Percussive Maintenance and HYTTIOAOA) to Sheffield but I'm only entering the two flippers as PM is not combat-ready yet.

Re: T_Y's Build Log

'Have You tried Turning It off And On Again?' is progressing quite nicely. It's been designed and now I'm printing off the parts and cutting polycarb. https://i.imgur.com/aYfPHFQ.jpg I had to throw away the 4-wheel idea, due to a lack of space (and maybe weight but I never got round to checking that...

Re: T_Y's Build Log

So I can't make it to AWS 56. Luckily, Robodojo are holding an antweight event the weekend after, so I should have enough time to sort out my bots. I've spent this afternoon troubleshooting the problems with Percussive Maintenance at the last Robodojo social in September. The gist of it was that my ...

Re: AWS56 - 13th October, Bristol

I can no longer make it to AWS 56 :(. A mix of getting to Bristol and accommodation costing a fair bit and still fixing up my bots. Good luck to everyone taking part!

Re: T_Y's Build Log

Sure, I can fight your spinner! I do need to see if the increased infill is any better than before, or if I need to consider building an enclosure for my 3D printer so I can print in ABS.

Re: T_Y's Build Log

Update time! So, Hello, World!'s chassis is coming along nicely. The brackets are now printed out with 90% infill compared to the previous 15%, so they should hopefully survive more than one hit from a spinner! The redesign of Percussive Maintenance is going well. I've cut out all the polycarbonate ...

Re: AWS56 - 13th October, Bristol

Signed up for this with two bots! If I find enough time to put together the third idea I have, I might enter that too. Looking forward to it!

Re: T_Y's Build Log

I was thinking of doing 4 motors, but I haven't really thought it out yet - I'll have to do some calculations on weight and space before I finalise the design.
