Vex claims to allow any part identical to a vex part in competition under rule
< R5 > d. Any parts which are identical to legal VEX parts are permitted. For the purposes of this rule,
products which are identical in all ways except for color are permissible. It is up to inspectors to determine whether a component is “identical” to an official VEX component.
So my question is if i buy some 1.6mm 5052-H32 Aluminum sheet and cut out c-channels using vex`s provided CAD so they are exactly the same would that be legal for competition use? I see no reason it wouldn’t be but many claim this is still non legal.
