Go to Post FIRST is difficult and it is challenging, but you arenít necessarily required to go off and build an 8 motor drivetrain and 4 motor / 8 pneumatic piston arm mechanism for the heck of it when a 2 motor non-shifting drivetrain and 2 motor arm does just as good a job. Bill Gold Karthik
Go to Post What Iím trying to say is that you should not necessarily be looking to build the next ďcoolĒ thing, unless thatís your teamís goal and youíve got the resources to finish it by ship date. Bill Gold Karthik

Go to Post There is almost always more than one solution to any engineering problem. One part of elegant design is picking the one that makes the most sense for a particular design problem, even if that means "breaking" some normally established "rules". Jeff Pahl Karthik
