View Full Version : What does your base look like?

Ive seen this in some threads but not a topic or a poll about it so here it goes.
What does your base look like? Is it Wide, Long, or a Square? This is a question one of my friends had from the Raiders who are building a ramp bot this year. If you could, it would be helpful if you posted maybe a picture of your base and or something like that.

Kind of hard to find... but: http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/showthread.php?t=51632&highlight=long+wide+will+your+robot+be

We've usually found that the biggest footprint works best.
For us at least...

our frame is pretty interesting this year. its kind of a square... well imagine an 18x18 square, with 4 wheel wells coming out of it. use lexan to round the thing up and we are basically a circle. heres a link to some picutures of the robot (and its frame) as of today:
http://220.127.116.11:6666/1-27-07/DSC00021.jpg - this one lets you see the square thing i was tlaking about
http://18.104.22.168:6666/1-27-07/DSC00032.jpg - this one shows the frame with the lexan support structure. imagine the octogon is rounded with lexan on the outside.
and yes, that is omni drive :D

at the risk of being inaccurate, I'd say that we have a "normal" drive. longer than it is wide, 4 wheel drive, decent ground clearance.

All your base are belong to us.
...but we are using the kit chassis 27" by 37" and a tubular aluminum frame that reaches 13" from the floor on 8" diameter pneumatic tires.

I'm glad that more than 75% of teams (so far) are building their chassis the long way. That's the way we designed our ramp was to accommodate 2 long robots. :D

Max dimensions and 6 wheel drive this year.

We just got it done today, and i can tell you that...
Its not a square :p
Nothing fancy, just the usual 27" x 37"
