Re: Antweight World Series 62 - Midsomer Norton - November 20th 2021

On the subject of allowing modified toys etc I assume they still have to fit the cube as well as meet the weight limit.

Re: Ant Freeze 8

I like the classes it gives a chance to try things like axes out which are not normally very competitive in open classes. It will give me a chance to try out my more experimental robots like spring axe, spring flipper and slow sawtooth grabber that probably wouldn't get into the AWS team. :roll:

Re: TinkerCAD for Antweights

I do all my ants in google Sketchup.
