More pics of the DT? That 80-20 setup looks pretty nifty.
Here are some renders of the robot’s mechanisms, to give a better sense of how they look. I will update this with a DT photo when I have the time to look for one.
Sorry for the poor quality.
After a few years of using 8020, we learned that bolting through was the best method of building 8020 chassis, as over the course of the season we would notice slippage in the t-nuts and brackets.
