Salut Encore!

Est-ce que les cylindres hydrauliques inclus avec un actionneurs sont acceptables? Le livret des règles adresse les pneumatiques, mais pas les hydrauliques.

Si les cylindres hydrauliques et/ou d'autres hydrauliques sont permises auront-il des restrictions / des règles et des directives qu'il va falloir suivre?

Hello again!

Are hydraulic cylinders that included actuators legal for the competition? The rule book only addresses pneumatics and includes no mention of hydraulics.

If hydraulic cylinders and/or other types of hydraulics are permitted will there be restrictions/ rules and specifications we must adhere to?

Hey,

I'm wondering if anyone would be willing to share their measurements for the arch.
Currently we know the top is 45.75" from the ground, and that the arch's horizontal diameter is 73".
I'm wondering if anyone knows how wide the flat section in the middle is, as the arch is not a perfect semi-circle.
Any info appreciated!

Hi, I would love to know if we are allowed to build parts using a 3D printer or a CNC machine and if there is a limit to what extent can we?

We are looking to purchase 4 motors: RobotZone 12V Heavy Duty Planetary Gear Motor 437rpm + Motor Mount E + D-Bore Hub. It is on the Live-RobotPart_Inventory. We are wondering if there is a specific website for the purchasing of these parts.

I'm a bit puzzled by the 2 following conflicting rules:

3.6.02 Extension Constraints
After a heat begins, robots can extend their dimensions over the initial size limit.

3.6.03 Moving Parts
Moving robot parts are allowed if they do not extend beyond the allowed dimensions and height limit at the beginning of and during a heat. (is this a typo, do you mean "end"?)

If we have an arm that extends beyond 91.44cm in a round, but can be positioned vertically @ the beginning/end of a round (so it's within the allowed build volume), is that legal?

Bonjour,

Dans une question précédente on a demandé des spécifications à propos de la balle de démolition. Une des spécifications a mentionné la taille de la balle: 25.4 x 25.4 x 34.3 cm. La balle est elle donc ovoïde et non sphérique?

Merci,

-Alex T.
