Due to various reasons (shipping issues, etc… dont worry about the reason) my team will not be able to buy the flags. Thus our coach said we should make them… Any ideas how to make the high and low flags? Are the 3d files online… can we like 3d print them to practice with… will they be nearly the same as the competition ones so that when we code it… it won’t differ?
There should be cad models for the field if you want to 3d print the brackets. Just google vex turning point field cad and you should be able to find it. For the poles I think it’s same size as schedule 40 3/4 inch pvc.
@alanwrench@Mark Finley Alright, but how do i make sure the resistance between the flag and pole is accurate… i’m programming my pneumatics to use the right amount of air… if my flags are made incorrectly then when it comes to real life competition i may be hitting the flags with too much or too little force
I don’t know how you would be able to replicate the resistance accurately but you could talk to teams nearby you to see if you can visit them to use their field for a day to test your stuff on a real field.
