How can I build an X-Drive?

I just wanted some pointers on how I can build an X-drive. Which kind of C-channel or metal pieces do I use? where the wheels should be positioned? etc
Thanks in Advance

This is a good example.

There’s also a Ri3D from this season which uses an x-drive, seen here.

Essentially you’ll want C-channel and several 45 degree steel “elbows”. These will allow you to position your wheels at 45 degree angles to your chassis.


I suggest looking at 5225A The Pilons drive from last year:

(They made these pictures of their robot public)


thanks for your help
