I do all mine in Sketchup it does get difficult trying to modify curved surfaces but otherwise seems more than adequate.

Re: Antweight open/AWS 2019

I always enjoy my trips to Basingstoke and this was another great event. Thanks to Dan and family for all their efforts and look forward to the next one.

Re: Battery Sourcing

They are more like 22 x 18 x 16 but the wires come out on the top so they have probably allowed for that in the 25 although as you can see in the picture if you remove the heatshrink you can get it down. They are thicker than normal which does make them look bigger. They are the same width and thick...

Re: Team Coolspeedbot's robot builds

It is always nice to see a variety of construction techniques.

Although Kyro makes light of his methods he does produce well engineered robots.

Re: Peter Wallers Robot Ramblings

Just been doing a couple of repairs from Roboshowdown both of which can be partially blamed on poor maintenance. The weapon motor in Anticyclone was the one that came out of Combatant with a broken shaft. As a quick repair I replaced the 2mm steel shaft with a carbon fibre one which I was going to r...

Re: Peter Wallers Robot Ramblings

My drum spinner Anticyclone has terrible gyro effects when turning due to the large mass and speed of the drum. I have redesigned it with a much lighter 3D printed drum which has 3 double ended Titanium blades with an indirect geared down belt drive. The robot is also my first try at printing in Car...

Re: Basic Flipper Hinge Question

I tend to use a 2 or 3 mm diam carbon fiber rod right across the robot and hang the flipper on that. You can get short bits on ebay quite cheap. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CARBON-FIBRE-PUSH-RODS-4-x-PIECES-2mm-x-100mm-10cms/391928437447?hash=item5b40c15ac7:g:xygAAOSwirZTtBOB If you have weight to sp...
