Okay so there are these 3D printed license plate holders that one of our sister teams designed for and won on an online challenge.
Our teams want to use them, mostly to show off our challenge-winning design, but also because they look good, and make license plate swapping EXTREMELY simple. However they were rejected at the Kalahari Classic last year as well when our teams used them.
Though the rules (as far as I’m aware) don’t allow any 3D printed parts, I think it is technically within the spirit of all the other rules, since license plates are non-functioning, and these, even though they technically have a function, are only holding something that is non-functioning.
However these were allowed at worlds last year.
So just to be very clear, does anyone have any thoughts regarding this? Are these legal as long as they are non-functioning (not counting holding the license plates)?
