Fleaweight cube relaxation?

Not sure many people still reads these boards but here goes... Is there any support for a rule-change to make the flea-weight cube 4" (to match ants) while keeping the weight limit to 75g ? This has been discussed a few times at events - and for AWS66, the 3" cube rule was dropped (partly ...

Re: A mission for a new weapon

Arguably, 'Pushers' are the category where success in competitions is most closely correlated to the skill of the driver. Historically, some of the most successful pushers in terms of AWS victories just happened to be operated by some of the best drivers. Spinners increase the chances of a lucky win...

Re: AWS65 - Norwich - 5th November 2022

Quick question - anyone know if there's a way to edit entrants in Rampage? I need to change a couple of our Ants (based on what's actually going to be ready for AWS65) but can't find anywhere in the GUI that allows me to delete or update...

Re: AWS65 - Norwich - 5th November 2022

Fantastic news.

Just been checking out "Productivity East" on the UEA website - looks like it might just give the Science Oxford Centre (AWS60) a run for its money in the swankiest AWS venue stakes!

Re: AWS 65 ???

Sounds promising. Not too far from Kent - and being Suffolk born & bred, I approve on principle.

Re: AWS 64- Bournemouth- July 30th 2022

Yeah - what a blast! Low numbers were inevitable I guess, given how far south it was, and it being at the start of most people's summer hols but that was still one of our most enjoyable events yet. Lovely venue and great work by the organisers. One consequence of the lower numbers (I think we ended ...

Re: AWS 64- Bournemouth- July 30th 2022

Fantastic news Tom - thanks for confirming so far ahead. Gives us plenty of time to sort out trains/hotel/etc, as well as building and rebuilding some more ants (about time Recycler had an upgrade...)

AWS 64?

Just wondering if anyone's got any news/gossip about date and venue for AW64 yet? At AWS63, Dave was suggesting it *might* happen at Eastbourne Uni in July (which would be awesome), however would be helpful to get as much notice as possible, given that it'll be the summer holidays - and hotels will ...

Re: Cost To Print An Antweight chassis/parts with PLA

Don't forget to multiply expected unit cost by any random number between 2 and 10, depending on the number of failed prints and corrections made after you realise *THAT BIT JUST ISN'T GOING TO FIT IN THERE IN REAL LIFE EVEN IF IT DID IN FUSION... :x :x :x *
