Re: Team 1202 Build Diary

Of weapons: so been considering weapon systems for crabulon. As much is it is about form over function, I would like it to have a weapon system, as this is something I have lacked in previous robots. I defiantly said at AWS 56 (along with saying the robot will be pink...) That Crabulon 2 would have ...

Binary robot question

So... For crabulon 2 I am thinking of doing a turret mounted weapon system. My current thinking is to have the turret as its own separate unit that has its own power supply and radio control etc. the turret will have a motor that engages with the base which is the only contact point. Ignoring the sh...

Files here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1KM1NThYTc14qjoV2Zxv7djMjEUaRuw-I?usp=sharing Crabulon was so cool to watch - I regret not coming to take a proper look, will make a point of it at the next event! Did your gear train loose teeth during the battle? What did you print it out of? I u...

Re: servo gears

What measures did you take to get the gear running concentric? I wasn’t that scientific – printed the cog to the same height as the horn, stuck some superglue inside and pushed the horn in, then used a flat bit of scrap to push it down to keep it level. Because it’s so small any variance is unnotic...

Re: Team 1202 Build Diary

So a ramble post full of promises and ambition... So my plan for Ant freeze / AWS 57 is weapons. Of all the ants I have made, only one had a weapon which lasted about 3 seconds thanks to a horizontal spinner. So I plan at this point to have 4 bots for those events. Crabulon: Current plans for Crabul...
