2017 – Botty McBothead

Design Process

The octagonal/hexagonal shape was designed as an attack-type chassis, able to break away from pins by other robots. We wanted to be a reliable gear-runner, quickly dashing between the loading station and the peg. The ramp and placer combo was quite sturdy, making it an optimal choice for this design.
