The kind of mounting brackets you can make when you are 30 lb underweight, left alone with a Bridgeport, and the aluminium blocks are free.
Are those the WCP DSes? Did you opt not to have them anodized?
By the way, I really like your folded C-channel to hold the two sides of your robot together. Are the folded channels the same part as a bellypan?
Single’s. We just didn’t have the plates/bearing blocks anodized at this point in time.
Nice job! How are you guys attaching bumpers (Bolt/Pin/Quick Release Pins etc…?)
What type of wheels are those. They look like they are made of stone**
Those are 4" Colsons. They drive pretty nicely!
Also, haven’t gotten the bumpers together. I’m sure the students have it all together in the cad though…
Yea, they are not anodized as that would have delayed them more than the 2 weeks that they already were
Thanks, that was our master CAD student Sahil. Here is the same corner in the CAD with the bumper mounts in place, the blue is the bellypan/C and is all one piece of metal. It bends back up on the other side in a mirror image. http://screencloud.net/v/51qF
They will probably be bolts and wing nuts down those little slots in the top of the mount, I am not quite sure, but we will be using reversible bumpers this year so they shouldn’t need to come off much
lol like I said, we are trying to add weight to our severely underweight bot
But no, as Phil said they are these: http://www.robotcombat.com/products/BPDWC09.html
I thought they were rubber wheels. Like the kind used to “grind” and “polish” aluminim.
Gee, I would be careful to keep those side mounts from getting bent…
Hmm, those mounting brackets don’t look strong enough…
