Re: Fishy Electronics - DisinfectANT , Cilit BANG

Slow progress at the moment, I am testing 3D printing custom belts - since it looks like i will need the drive system to be run from belts as well as the weapon. https://i.ibb.co/f0BFdZM/Belts2.png Spot-A elastic resin seems to be the best bet so far. Tried FDM printing in Ninjaflex... it just came ...

Re: MichaelG92's Build Diaries

That bit you have made there. At least double the thickness of it :wink: it will need to be stronger if it hinges the flipper.

Re: Fishy Electronics - DisinfectANT , Cilit BANG

@George: Ahh hadn't tested or had any experience with cracking polycarb before. This could be more entertaining then, with that kind of risk! :lol: Will see how it goes and have a bar redesign on standby! @TeamScrewup: Thanks :) Could be a Jackson Pollock piece of art, if this does not work out as I...

Re: Fishy Electronics - DisinfectANT , Cilit BANG

Ahh yea i figured polycarb is the most impact resistant thing around so it wont bend or warp after taking a hit. If it can take a bullet, i hope it can take a spinner impact xD (this video escalates quickly lol) https://youtu.be/Hsls5ZPCUnE Didn't consider the shearing screws :-? on my bar, the ones...

Re: Fishy Electronics - DisinfectANT , Cilit BANG

@Lima I hope so! My first bot i put in M1 screws to hold the teeth... so learnt from that mistake at least :lol: Bar will be 37.8g when all done :-? Really needing all parts to be accurate to CAD or it's going to vibrate away, thankfully 0.1g margin of error at the moment. So looking good so far Tha...

The main aim to disintigrate other bots :lol: so i have to accept with good sportsmanship, if/when it happ...

Re: Fishy Electronics - DisinfectANT , Cilit BANG

Time for some build log image spam. :D Bought a broken lathe for cheap. Sherline 4000, which is nice for small work. 1987 edition though and getting rusty, motor and electronics are shot. Here after some cleanup https://i.ibb.co/XpRdVMM/IMG-20190104-152410.jpg Cleaned the motor, fixed brushes, reass...

Re: AWS rule polls 2019

Really good update. Very democratic modification of the rules and very sensible changes. Well done fellas! Personally, I agree with everything you have added or changed :) For the pit thing, perhaps adding, If there is a discrepancy around a pit-elimination. Final say will be given to the judge / ev...

Re: Fishy Electronics - DisinfectANT , Cilit BANG

That thing just looks SILLY, and in the most beautiful way! I just really, REALLY hope it isn't going to Drizzle itself. I'm also slightly worried that the wobble from the walker mechanism (if there is any) combined with the gyro effect of a bar - especially one that high off the ground - is gonna ...

Re: Fishy Electronics - DisinfectANT , Cilit BANG

https://i.ibb.co/tBNVpxB/WIP2.jpg Cilit BANG 90% there with design, just some more work on the chassis to hold all the components (with room for [most] wires this time!) Offset composite weapon bar looks very unbalanced, but it will be fiiiine :P Had to reduce to 4 legs to save weight and space... ...

Re: Team Antiquarian build diary

Looks awesome! A+ Dad-ing!

Some grey paint and a couple of stencils or yellow/black hazard tape would decorate that arena up nicely :)
Good luck in your battles!
