Ri3D will be back in 2019 but… some things are changing.
We’ve had fun over the past 7 years but the concept of Ri3D has grown a bit too much for us to manage. For those of you who don’t know, the founders have assisted in organizing and helping other Ri3d teams get started, especially those in college. In the past we were able to help recruit sponsorship, provide guidance and aggregate the content for various Ri3D teams. The model had a few ups and downs (especially during elevator years) and it wasn’t flawless but we think we’ve done some good with it.
Ri3D has now grown to the point where we cannot dedicate the necessary time to manage/administer that process. Unfortunately, with the number of teams increasing and our available time decreasing we can’t offer that support any longer.
As of now Ri3D 1.0 still plans to build a robot (in some amount of time that’s not 6 weeks) but we are encouraging other Ri3D teams to pursue their own YouTube Channels / Streams, Sponsors etc…
We will continue to cross promote builds, streams, memes etc… and are more than willing to offer advice if you have any questions. It’s time for team’s to spread their wings and fly / leave the nest / enter the wild / (insert white fang reference here) and we’re excited to see where new teams take it!
