Last year in particular had a lot of field elements to construct. The plans that were published by FIRST were all dimensioned well enough and commented so that you could tell how to construct everything, and what material each piece was made from.
However, there’s not an overall material purchase list or a cut list … so we always spend awhile trying to calculate that all before going to the store. Plus it means that trying to figure out which pieces to lay out on a single 4’x8’ plywood sheet to maximize field elements per dollar is pretty tough.
Is there anyone that puts together a better guide for this? I know some groups hosting kickoffs get the plans early (hush hush), but I don’t know if their versions have cut/material lists?
Help a mentor out :ahh:
