Re: BotFest 4 (25th April 2020)

All 14 slots have now been filled and the Google form has been closed. With that said, I am going back to the Church this Sunday to see if it is possible to rise this by 6 to make 20 slots for anyone who missed out on registration the first time around.

Re: BotFest 4 (25th April 2020)

Apologies, I noticed last night that the registration to the originally planned event was still open on AntLog, which I have now force closed. If you have signed up for BotFest 4 via AntLog, you will need to register again through the Google form.

Re: BotFest 4 (25th April 2020)

There was a discussion about this on the FRA forum. One alternative might be to simply rebind the controller to one another roboteer might have if that works for you? It'd mean they'd use their own controller.

Re: BotFest 4 (25th April 2020)

I've only just heard back from the Church myself regarding the price to hire the place for the afternoon. They are OK with it though it will be on the 26th of September. More details to follow shortly.

Re: Team Oh, It Broke Build Logs

Shattered drilling what material? I find nice and slow with a bit of oil usually helps in metal. I've snapped drill bits in HDPE but that usually comes with any of the following: the result of a jaunty angle, bad holding of the drill or bending whilst drilling.
