Could you 3d print non-moving parts

Just wonder. Because I want to make our team’s logo and put it on our robot.

taken from the game manual, non functional decorations are allowed per rule R13

R13: Decorations are allowed. Teams may add non-functional decorations, provided that they do not
affect Robot performance in any significant way or affect the outcome of the Match. These decorations must be in the spirit of the competition. Inspectors will have final say in what is considered “non-functional”. Unless otherwise specified below, non-functional decorations are governed by all standard Robot rules.

can someone else say that’s it’s ok I just want to make sure I can!

It’s ok, we printed a decoration and put it on our robot at a competition today.

If you look closely at the rule it says “Inspectors will have final say in what is considered “non-functional”.”

What is said on the forum will not help you if Inspectors say “please remove”

Lol we live in the same state and I had a competition today as well

What’s your team number?

As long as it’s nonfunctional it should be fine. Just make sure you can remove it if the inspectors ask you to. Reference R13 in the rule book (or what @Amanda posted, although the actual rule is a bit longer and has a bit more info) for more info on the rules regarding non-functional decorations. A 3d printed logo should be fine since it would be nonfunctional. (An example of a functional piece would be using a 3d printed gear.
