You can see in the CAD the single acting pistons is slightly shorter than the double acting, but in reality the single acting is about an inch longer. Now this really isn’t a huge deal for me but some teams do CAD their robot before building. This kind of error could actually throw off entire designs, in my case It might.
If the download for the Pnuematics kits can be updated this would be great.
Now I say take this carefully as I am using older models, but the parts should still be the same as the part numbers have not changed.
I assure you my part numbers are correct, when I make a 500 dollar order of Pnuematics its not something that I tend to screw up. I’ve noticed this difference and wonder why the CAD model is off that is all, it also appears that the product page is off. I am looking through SMC CAD files now and will report back with my results directly from SMC. I just think this might be a silly oversight.
Now that I have done some research I have downloaded the models from SMC with the correct part numbers, it seems to be some kind of error on their end. The parts I am getting in reality have wildly different dimensions from the CAD (roughly 1.5 inches). Can someone from VEX comfirm I’m not crazy?
