Tools

Fasteners

  • Fasteners training involves important lessons in the best way to assemble/attach materials. Different fasteners are most optimal for different materials and different purposes, and the fasteners training will help you figure out which fasteners to use when. See this document for more information or contact: Jacob Welch

DRIVE TRAIN

  • drivetrain101/physics of driving (torque, friction, cg, tipover, drive styles)
  • Suspension Strategies
  • wheels (sizing, surface, tire pressure, footprint/quantity, choices/limitations + advantages, secondary hardware requirements, tanks vs wheel)
  • motors (torque/current, efficiency, burn-in, choices/limitations+ advantages, secondary hardware requirements)
  • encoders (choices/limitations + advantages)
  • sensors
  • rails/chassis (cots options, diy options, choices/limitations + advantages, secondary hardware requirements)
  • gear boxes (gear ratios, diy vs. cots, shifters)
  • bumpers
  • advanced topics (specialized designs)
  • good practices (mass props, icds, cg tracking, standard hardware)

MECHANISMS + MANIPULATORS

  • motors (torque/current, efficiency, burn-in, choices/limitations+ advantages, secondary hardware requirements)
  • mounts for securing motors and other things to a chassis
  • couplers (for transmitting rotational force)
  • encoders (choices/limitations + advantages)
  • sensors
  • intakes
  • shooters
