As always, the deadline is nominally Sunday at midnight Eastern.

Go!


#2

The difference between teams with a lot of money and teams without a lot of money comes down to how they keep their less-useful members entertained: CNCs and KOP leadscrews, respectively.


#3

“I really like this brand-new CNC machine.”
“Yeah, all it took was half a dozen college funds.”


#4

you see, the rule is no MENTOR built robots, they never said anything about a CNC.


#5

“I don’t know, looks like a time machine to me. You think we can find what the 2019 game will be?”


#6

“I bet carpedav000 could program this thing”


#7

Student on left: “I wonder if this arm knows when a game piece is between its grippers?” Decides to stick head into it to see.

Mentor (not in picture): “When I said we should get AHEAD in our build season schedule, this is not what I had in mind.”


#8

OK, about three seconds south and we should be able to make contact with Primus.

It’s a handheld PVC antenna, and you’re asking me to move it three seconds of arc!?


#9

G code is to complex, let’s just use PVC pipe


#10

The High Desert Droids creating the 2007 version of their namesake, the droid they were actually looking for.


#11

Student in white: Subtract, subtract, subtract. Why’s it always gotta be taking away. Why can’t we add?

Student in black: Them’s dangerous thoughts. You’d best be sticking to your G code.


#12

$50,000.00 CNC machine and one student makes the item they needed with PVC.


#13

Forget rapid prototyping, exPeditious, actiVe, breakneCk prototyping is where it’s at.


#14

As the students focused on the big machine, they hadn’t noticed the third student inadvertently impaling himself on the tooling.


#15

Student in Black, staring at a motionless CNC machine: “Maybe we should’ve checked the trip current on our breakers before we bought this machine…”

Student in Blue: “When you can’t CNC…PVC!”


#16
