Hi I was wondering if it is legal to paint VEX IQ parts with non-toxic paint
In The Crossover manual Rule R8, it says "Robots are allowed to use the following additional “non-VEX IQ” components: a. Teams may add appropriate non-functional decorations provided that these do not affect the robot performance in any significant way or affect the outcome of the match. These decorations must be in the spirit of the event. Inspectors will have the final say in what is considered “nonfunctional”.
But In the Add It up manual it says
<R7> Robots are allowed to use the following additional “non-VEX IQ” components:
ii. The use of non-toxic paint is allowed as a non-functional decoration. However, teams should be
careful, as the use of paint may affect how VEX IQ parts “snap” together. Also, any paint being
used as an adhesive would be classified as functional.
