Total rebuild

So what should you never do in the run up to a competition? Throw away your robot and start again. But that’s (almost) what we’ve done…

So the old robot chassis was always intended to be temporary – made of 3mm cardboard and aluminium brackets. We finally got round to replacing it with a chassis made of 5mm PVC foamboard cut on a CNC router. But it means a tedious task of removing all the parts from the old chassis, bolting them on the new and re-routing all the wires.

We’ll see shortly if we’ve managed to do that without error…

Here’s a picture of the job half done.
