Re: AWS 50- 23rd July- Basingstoke

I am on the train to Basingstoke and arrive at 9.36. Is anyone else arriving that wants to share a taxi to the venue?

Re: Proposed rule changes 2015

I have just caught up with this thread and I feel like I am going backwards. 1) Honestly I find the nanos and fleas are detracting from the main AWS. A beginner at an AWS with 1 robot will get 2 fights only before the melees if there is time. 2) I don't see any harm with the 3 minutes, not many figh...

Re: Shufflebot walking mechanism?

Another slightly more complex mechanism is to have 2 sets of the offset cams roating in sync with each other. Normally 3 or 5 gears in the train.

The whole leg moves around in a circle. but stays level with the ground. This is how kwijebo and ickle work.

Re: EDFs

I agree with Scott EDFs should be discussed and a decision made about rules. I take antweight robots competitively and progress towards designs that have a better chance of winning over more fun designs. Silicone and polyurethane wheels give a grip advantage and the majority of robots now use these ...

Re: :Wanted:

Sorry Joey my old xvalve is broken. It also has far too little flow for an ant. The rs valve is better.

Re: motor powered axe.

Way back at aws20 and 21 anticide had an axe. I used a large brushed motor and some mod 0.5gears. Original control.was a small.servo and micro switches. I changed this to a home made h bridge. But a scorp mini or decent servo board would definitely work. It was more useful as a grabber than an axe, ...

Spur Gears

I am looking at 3D printing some gears for a new drive train. I have only ever bought gears in the past. Does anyone have a plugin for Solidworks2010 that works out the angles correctly? I found one on thingiverse but it was a future version. Alternatively what have other people used to cad gears fo...
