So I know a lot of us have not gotten our field kits but wish to be testing out our prototypes. There are a lot of this year specific game elements and am just asking for everyone’s opinion on building a mock field
Download the field instructions and see what parts you have to get something close.
I agree that the field instructions (and perhaps the field CAD) are definitely good instructions, and if you have the pieces, by all means build it according to the field build instructions. However, the field (unfortunately) uses a lot of obscure pieces that many teams don’t have on hand. I didn’t have virtually any of the obscure parts nor the quantity of the parts that I did have to build a makeshift field from the instructions. Instead, I just used the key dimensions as a guide and made something that sort of resembled the actual field pictures.
