This was my teams robot for our first competition for tower takeover. I wanted to make a thread to see other teams robots to see if anyone else was as enthusiastic about theming as we are.

Wow these robots look really cool!! Love the LEDs. @Crduff how did you get the Polycarbonate to look like that?

The theme for our bot last year was bent c-channels and benter shafts

I would do some decals and whatnot but my robot sucks so it’d probably be an embarrassment to have a cool looking robot that doesnt work

Well I had to sand the backside of the polycarbonate starting at 60 grit, then 120 grit, and finally 220 grit so that the backside had some grip. Then I used acrylic paints and painted in reverse order (painted the black outlines first then colored in the rest) and spray painted the backside and clear coated it to protect it. Its alot of work but I really love the result
