With the recent surge in Omicron cases, shipping may be slower than stated times. We are working to build, ship and respond to everything as quickly as possible. Please see all COVID-19 updates here. Thank you for your continued support.

  • Sorry. I can't read. I just saw the link for scores.

  • Can you list the points scored by the winners? I want to know what my target is for next year.

  • You want models? I've got 250 students ready and waiting to model stuff in 3D! Right next door to you in fact, CU Boulder Mechanical Engineering. However, I strongly suggest that files be made available in STP or IGS. STL is not useful because it seriously degrades the quality and also is not importable into SolidWorks. I don't know much about the SketchUp files but I think that the professional world is more likely to be interested if you have STEP or IGS.

  • Umm, so if I want to register for the AVC get sent to this page. Does that mean you are going to hold the AVC at his wedding and we are all invited?

  • You can find out more about the robot shown at 0:50 at this website:

  • I've got one of these and it is a game changer. It isn't exceedingly accurate. I use it for things that don't need accuracy better than +/- 0.020". Also, it doesn't handle overhangs at all except for small distances. This is because it doesn't have a separate support material. So, if you want overhangs you need to design in supports then cut them off after the build. Besides these limitations it works wonders. I am a mechanical engineer and it actually is pretty solid considering the cost.

    A few suggestions for you SFE: I replaced put a 4" wide copper plate over the Heated Build Platform (using your heatsink glue in between), then over the top of the copper I bought some 5" wide Kapton tape that I lay down. When you clean the kapton with acetone the ABS sticks really well and makes for a smooth and solid foundation for everything you build that is easily repaired (the kapton tape).

  • Would you mind putting a target on those barrels?
    Also, any points awarded for leaving car parts embedded in the barrels?

  • It would be really helpful if you could nail this down soon. Here's why: If the sides of the arch are narrow then targeting is the method to use in my mind. If the sides of the arch are wide then obstacle avoidance/wall following is an option. The two possibilities mean significantly different sensors & software.

  • Any news on the arch dimensions?!

  • Can I use a 1/18th scale RC car?

No public wish lists :(
