FTC Robot

3D model description

In this updated FTC Robot
- Updated instructions and parts list
- Easier way to build the riser assembly

  • The risers holes are better aligned.
  • The chassis now has numbers corresponding to each part to help build it.
  • The wheels were designed to be stronger.
  • Added a new mount to hold the On/Off rocker switch and power label to the back of the robot.
  • The motor mounts are completely redesigned to be smaller and stronger using shorter screws.
  • Additional holes were added to mount mechanisms and loop tip ties through.
  • Added a port to attach number plates.
  • Over cleanup of all parts so they work and look more professional.

  • Any questions not answered or further explanation is needed please contact with the subject FTC Robot

  • If you need building instructions or a complete parts and file list, please contact with the subject Information FTC Robot

  • If you need further clarification on how to build a subassembly, please contact with the subject Build FTC Robot.

Just a quick summary, this project is a full size, competition ready, FTC Robot. This robot uses a unique building system that allows mechanisms to be added or taken off without disassembling the whole robot. Also, this robot has a universal chassis that can be used for years on different FTC games. This robot design is clean, professional, and easy to organize wires. The hole size fits #6 -32 screws self-threading holes.
Unlike a typical cube robot, this robot can be produced by only spending a total of $100 across 2 spools of filament and hardware (excluding the phones, motors, battery, and Rev Expansion hub). A typical robot could cost upwards of $400 - $600 (excluding the phones, motors, battery, and Rev Expansion hub).
In the past seasons, this robot design was very competitive among other FTC robots. Last year, this robot design had a total of 34 ranking points at the end of its season. The front half and the riser platform are able to mount different mechanisms. It is a direct drive system making it easy to drive and program.
The total build time for this puzzle piece robot is about 1-3 hours. This time makes it easy for the robot to be built in 1-2 build meetings. The robot is easy to build. However, the small adjustment may have to be made in order to mount certain mechanisms. The print time is long in total time. The time ranges from (smallest part) 15 minutes to about 2 hours (largest part).
This project is great for Kids in the 10th-12th grade because it teaches them 3D printing, Design, Building, Robotics, Programming, Electrical work. The main use for this project is for FTC Robotics but it will work just fine in an engineering class. The project has value to technology, mathematics, and engineering.
