VersaFrame is still out of stock. I emailed their support asking for updates. Our team likes VersaFrame because it eliminates the need to drill every single hole needed on our robot, saving precious build hours we have after school. Our team has invested heavily in Vex products (VersaPlanetary, Gussets, VersaBlock) in the past two years and would like to continue to use the items we have in our inventory.
The best replacement I could find is the REV ION MAXTube in “No Pattern” option. Or we can just buy tubes that aren’t predrilled. The problem with REV ION is the holes are #10 while Vex parts are #8, so the screw holes will align but not be snug on the screws.
Good to hear! I think we are trending towards this option. How do you like the thickness? It looks like two sides are thinner than the others? Or its just a typo in the specs because it doesn’t seem to match the images
