I wanted to announce that I am starting a new open source project. I want to create and release the CAD models for some of the best robots that have been made in vex over the past few years. I got inspiration for this from another competitor many years ago that did something similar with 1103’s Round up robot.
Viewing the model of 1103’s robot when i first joined vex taught me a lot of the basic’s and really inspired me (My first drive was a very poorly built clone of his). I’m hoping that these will have a similar impact on other competitors.
The robots that i plan to make right now are:
- 2587Z Nothing but net
- 169A Turning Point
- 365X Starstruck
- 202Z In The Zone
In the future i am considering to do:
- 21 Tossup
- 118 Skyrise
- 62 Skyrise
- 44 Tossup
- (Possibly more)
Let me know if you want another to be made and i will definitely consider it.
Today i finished the 2587Z Nothing But Net CAD and will release the files soon, for the time being i will leave you with some renders i made of it.
