Re: Team Coolspeedbot's robot builds

Thanks Peter, your advice on the motor mounts helped with the weight saving.

HB (6 wheeled bot) is going to be a interesting experiment, it's going to be the most compact and shortest robot I've built. The height only being 2.2cm.

The reprinted chassis of Killer-Wolf 2 has arrived and can report I've managed to save 15 grams in weight. https://68.media.tumblr.com/b1a624879f2b785bb7326110fb71b591/tumblr_ov3p8ml0Cc1venf23o1_1280.jpg https://68.media.tumblr.com/b4ce0eeb92f256c247f6be7534605a47/tumblr_ov3p8ml0Cc1venf23o2_1280.jpg

While waiting for the new print of KW2 I continued my work of my 6 wheeled bot H.B. https://68.media.tumblr.com/b9a91327701279ad6318ceea66f81c87/tumblr_ouzmw1wltd1venf23o1_1280.png https://68.media.tumblr.com/666b20cf0abac2b9afc2bd37a7ec8561/tumblr_ouzmw1wltd1venf23o2_1280.png https://68.media.tumbl...

Re: Team Coolspeedbot's robot builds

Using the help of the Cura software Pete suggested, I've been cutting weight out of KW 2's CAD roughly looking to be saving 10g in weight. Old Version (69g, Base = 62g, flipper arms = 7g ) https://68.media.tumblr.com/6a6cab07f297ea270ab72ca8deb52ad8/tumblr_ouw7ei8NLh1venf23o2_1280.png New Version (5...

Re: Team Coolspeedbot's robot builds

Hi. I usually drill some small holes in the chasis if I need to shave a gram off. Theres always some difference in scales though so you might be alright but its better not to take the risk. The robot looks great by the way. Well I did that with Killer-Wolf 1.5 and failed to shave any weight off of ...

Re: Team Coolspeedbot's robot builds

Been trying to edit the CAD of Killer-Wolf 2, trying to shave off weight in places (not finding much I can comfortably remove). The Chassis weighs 55g, electronics weigh 75g and the flipper arm and panel weighs 20-30g. I managed to fit everything inside and got it up and running. Could do with so ad...
