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.

Thanks,

Pavan.

Re: What does your base look like?

We've usually found that the biggest footprint works best.

For us at least...

Re: What does your base look like?

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://70.16.228.61:6666/1-27-07/DSC00021.jpg - this one lets you see the square thing i was tlaking about

http://70.16.228.61:6666/1-27-07/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

Re: What does your base look like?

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.

Re: What does your base look like?

All your base are belong to us.

Re: What does your base look like?

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.
