Re: T_Y's Build Log

Realised I didn't update this for AWS59. Not much to say really, as usual an incredible day even if I didn't win any fights. After a chat with GeorgeR, I ordered some 0.5mm grade 5 titanium to upgrade the shield on Percussive Maintenance 2 - I had a whiteboard against Vampire where the alu shield st...

Re: GeorgeR's robots

Those N10s look like they'll be very useful, considering the smaller size

Re: T_Y's Build Log

It was actually more to do with having the forks there and the opponent being sandwiched between them and the axe. I actually now think that the gear slippage is to do with the servo horn (which is screwed to the larger gear) actually flexing under the torque when such a case happens. I'm going to p...

Re: T_Y's Build Log

https://i.imgur.com/UUVPd4d.jpg Here is the shield at default position. https://i.imgur.com/hOWPGiP.jpg Here it is when fully hinged down. https://i.imgur.com/so0zXox.jpg I still have enough ground clearance at the back that I can reverse off the shield. It seems to work well in stopping robots wit...

Re: T_Y's Build Log

I'm using the Dremel brand ones that came with my Dremel. I've actually found that the 1mm 6082 is soft enough for me to just put the drill bit into my pin vice and hand drill the hole. Much more accurate. I picked up some clamps and two pieces of steel to bend the aluminium on a new shield which wr...

Re: T_Y's Build Log

holy moly... your going to build a rail gun bot... ;) Antweight Rail Gun Max would be awesome! With AWS 59 only a few weeks away, designing and building has stepped up. I've finally made the jump to use metal on my bots, with the introduction of a new hinged aluminium wedge/plough for Percussive Ma...

Re: T_Y's Build Log

RoboShowdown yesterday was great fun, a more relaxed affair than the AWSes I've been to by virtue of not having anywhere near as many bots there. There were some nice whiteboards and special fights as well which were entertaining to say the least. The day started off with the 2v2s. I was planning on...

Re: T_Y's Build Log

It's done! The long anticipated (for at least!) revamp of Percussive Maintenance, I give you Percussive Maintenance 2: Tech Support Boogaloo! https://i.imgur.com/QiVSYaz.jpg Here it is next to the previous chassis for comparison. It's shorter, but having the 2 stage sides actually means that there i...

Re: T_Y's Build Log

Just over a week to RoboShowdown and progress has been made. The armour has all been cut out for PM2: https://i.imgur.com/BugwZoh.jpg https://i.imgur.com/bxktJHp.jpg I did a bit of testing of the axe as well, borrowing the NanoTwo from HYTTIOAOA for that. It's... MUCH faster and stronger than previo...
