    Looks neat - reminds me of a cross between TMHWK and Mortis. What thickness of HDPE are you planning on using?

    15mm frame
    20mm axe frame
    5mm top, side and front angled (might thicken that last bit)

    Looks tidier than my featherweight 5mm is fairly thin mind - The Honey Badger 2.x has 10mm HDPE all around and after encountering Shrekt (a vertical spinner), there are some serious gouges in the panels so if you can thicken it up, it can only be better protection.

    the 5mm HDPE is the top and the angled side, the front plow should be 4/5mm HARDOX

    Quick update, work colleague got a 3d printer "for his kid" and offered to print us a new battery box.

    It is only 4mm PLA, so it isn't the strongest thing in the world, but I have heard that it possible to "heat treat" it to improve the layer bonding which improve the strength (by a lot apparently).

    Also in the progress of ordering the Hardox armour and hammer from K-cut.

    I might get this bot done before the end of this century. =P
