That frame looks pretty good. How much does it weigh?
Looks a lot like our UTC scrimmage 04 frame. We had to remake it out of tube and angle though because it tipped the scales a we bit heavy. I’m guessing it weighs close to 25 lbs.
How is the frame held together? i can’t see any brackets.
Looks like anchor fasteners. If you look near the joint you can see a circular bore for them.
8020 is awesome. It’s the primary material used on our robot. I really like the anchor fastners we got this year that our supplier showed us. The only issue is you have to machine a hole into the 8020, but you can setup a CNC program to do it in a matter of seconds.
Wow. I think that weighs about 5 pounds.All because it looks so, light. I wonder how strong it is.
*“Its a shade of red, not pink.”
^ that quote i found yesterday in class.*
That’s REALLY strong, I don’t remeber the deflection for it…nor do I have the 8020 CD with me, but its really strong. We’ve have 3/4" Alumminum bend before 8020’s 1010 series has shown any damage.
Just under 14 pounds, without the wheels.
You’ll get to see it in person at Palmetto!
Not bad at all.
(And seeing that I obsessively checked the registration list for Palmetto, I don’t really know how I didn’t connect that you were y’all–d’oh! Either way, I can’t wait to see it.)
Are those Skyways on the back?
Excellent job on that. There’s some solid construction. I can’t wait to see how it performs. Do post some videos when its done.
