How did using undermounted electronics work out for you? Did they make maintenance hard?

I can't speak for them, but our team did the under mounted electronics. Honestly as long as we don't have to traverse over any obstacles like Stronghold or Rebound Rumble, We will more than likely put the electronics on the bottom again. No more having mechanisms in the way or tight situations. Just flip the robot up. Plus if you're into the cool factor, when you climb the lights look cool

This is correct. It worked great for us this year. The only thing to really be careful of is to check underneath the drivetrain after every match and vacuum up anything that could have gotten in the electronics. Other than that, maintenance was easy. It saves a lot of space, especially if the top side of your bellypan is needed for ball storage, like this year.

Re: 1678 Citrus Circuits 2017 CAD Release

This is really great, thanks for releasing it. I was looking for a shooter design summer project for the team and this will be enormously helpful as a test case/example.

Congrats on all of your accomplishments!

Re: 1678 Citrus Circuits 2017 CAD Release

Amazing CAD, im very inspired some design choices you guys made, I would love to be able to explore individual parts to gain some more knowldege, is there any chance 1678 will release the Solidworks files aswell?

Unfortunately, we generally only release the CAD as a STEP file because it's easier to access and too complicated to release all the part files. Sorry about that.

That's too bad. Not even a pack-and-go to a zip file? The 300 MB step file crashes my copy of Solidworks every time it tries to convert.

Pack and go should do the trick as far as I know.

Sorry about this. I have the same issue with my computer. However, we'll have to stick with the STEP file in this case, just with our standard. Perhaps if I remove the large electronics and replace them with mock ups it will make the file smaller and easier to download

The problem isn't really the downloading of the file - sure 300mb is big but not a problem for most internet connections. It's the fact the model is so complex that it's crashing people's computers just attempting to open the STEP and interpret it.

Removing components with complex geometry that aren't really needed for comprehending the model (like electronics) would help, but as stated a Pack & Go from Solidworks would be preferable. But, if you have a standard to stick to I get it.
