3D Printed Battlebot Design
First, I want to give lots of credit to sergeant cuddles from the 2016 Sparkfun AVC competition. I made a lot of design choices based off of his robot.
I have spent approximately 2 months designing this robot for the AVC 2019. I am also going to be testing many different print setting for the Weapon and will most likely post them here. I have designed the robot to be double-sided so that if it gets flipped over, it will still be able to drive. It also cannot get stuck on its side because of the wedges on the sides that make it unbalanced. For the drive motors, I am using 2 metal micro gear motors that are inside a metal micro gear motor enclosure. That will absorb some of the shock put onto the motors and hopefully make them last longer. Hopefully, I explained everything you need to know about the battle bot. If you have any question just write them in the comments section.
