How does the L3 cones work with the 1.5 dof bot?

it kinda just vaugely launches them onto the cone, should work good enough


My apologies, I meant did the drop down intake pickup cubes and cones effectively?

I made a mistake in the master sketch, so the intake had a bit too much compression, we did a temp fix, but we’re replacing the plates tomorrow with proper compression. We won’t be picking up ground cones for now.

mini update:
Max planetaries are now lowered with a 2nd stage reduction to keep MP bearings safe (not done on alpha)
2nd piston and overkill 3dp spacers to spread loads appropriately and ensure the extension is consistent.


On technicality we are on schedule. Holiday today so only 8 ppl came, still good work though.




Robot is now done mechanically and electrically! Electrical systems check done and everything looks clear.

Expect testing videos on thurs/Saturday


Day 10 of our rookie season, 4 years ago.

Insanely proud of y’all :blue_heart:


This is really impressive! Your speed is nuts!

Important question though - do you still have apparel for sale?


How would you guys rate the experience using the MAX Tube? It seems like it helped a lot with the speed of your guy’s CAD/Assembly.

It was pretty nice to not have to machine tube. That being said, it would have been nice if rev sold a jig for cutting the tube with the proper offsets, as it’s really easy to cut the right length and wrong hole count/hole spacing, and it messes up everything up. Our team is still pretty inexperienced, so we struggled a lot with that, which slowed down our assembly a lot. Still think it’s very good though.


Thank you! I’m checking with our imagery lead so I’ll send an update post when I get an update.


Do you guys make drawings or do you just do like a cut list (ex. i need x 12 in sections etc)?

We usually use a cut list + reference cad, though we haven’t had the time to train everyone in the proper way to cut tube I guess, we’ve made a scuffed 3dp jig + added some QC checks to make sure it doesn’t happen again though.

It would probably be good practice to make drawings, but things usually change on the fly, and documentation is hard, lol.

Would you say the cost vs time saved was worth it?

Even so, I’d say it was worth the time save

We designed this jig for use with REV MaxTube precisely for the reasons you mentioned. These were inspired by something I think @Nick_Coussens posted on Discord a while back.

This uses these dowel pins from amazon. The onshape document below has an adjustable kerf setting for whatever your blade width is.

Hope this could be useful!


Oh ya here’s the public manipulator cad because a few ppl asked for it Onshape
