Thanks, Jules. Although, isn't it normal for a woman to do all the work and a man to get the congratulations?

Picked up a Cacoon Create that only had 40mins use for $300 with few rolls and few basic mods done to it,What Rules are you guys looking at running for Ant weight
Have found this ones

http://robotwars101.org/ants/rules22a.htm

But reading else where the USA run there rules slightly different allowing more weight? Be nice to know what rules going for so can built somthing to suit

lol just filmed a video on this topic, the wanhao i3 is a good choice. Get yourself a stronger material than stock PLA for your frame though! PLA+, PETG or PolyMax would be good choices.

Nice one- dyrodium is the aussie 3d printer guru👍

We use the 150g rule in australia - eveything is allowed including spinners and wedges . We arent going to allow flame throwers at this event . But we may at future events

3minute rounds .We will have the arena with a pit that releases at the two minute mark💥

Awesome
What motors did ya get? Are you going to make a build report?
Think ya need a heated bed for abs but would be good if it works-regular pla should be fine - its often more about the shape than the material and you can always bolt a paint scraper on the front of your bot for armour 🤖

Picked up couple of these,seen a few others use them on there builds,May chuck up bit of a build report all trail and error for me,Built full custom RC cars before so Robot isnt too far off from what I already know,Printer does have headed bed just may need to get a cabinet to store in since google tells me abs doesnt like to cool off to fast otherwise it cracks,Brought 20 10 meter rolls all different colour to play around with,Just printing out some test rims out of PLA see how they come out
