Is designing as much fun as battling?

Rate this Entry
I am really getting into the designing part of the sport.

Spent ages trawling websites like Robotshop, Dx.com, technohotsonline, eBay and Amazon. As I am working on a beetle weight is critical. I am also getting to grips with OnShape. I am able to model most simple things that a vendor has a drawing for. Motors, hubs, wheels etc. The built in mass calculator also shows just how much I save by narrowing a plate from 2mm to 1.5mm or drilling out holes. This is making the exercise much more efficient and probably saving me koney, as otherwise I would not have bought wisely or ended or making multiple chassis's before fixing on a design.

I am getting closer each day and hope to share something no later than next week.
