Hi, I’m from team 6884, and we are trying to decide whether or not to build and design a custom chassis or not. We are a 3rd year team, but we essentially started from scratch last year. We have never attempted to create our own chassis and have always used the stock kit chassis. Frankly, we are fairly lacking in experience and tooling.
Here are some pros and cons I have thought of:
-great learning experience
More design flexibility
-lack of experience
-lack of resources/tooling
-I don’t see much benefit over the kitbot chassis considering we are an inexperienced team.
Is it worth it to build our own chassis, especially considering the relatively short amount of time until build season? Thanks in advance
P.S. thoughts on Kitbot on Steroids?
