Guldenflame's Sketchy Showcase

Post by GuldenFlame » Wed Sep 20, 2017 1:15 pm

First post, may as well make a good first impression (Or try at least)
I'm stuck with SketchUp as my CAD program so this is all I've got.

First off, we got a spring-loaded crusher. Something that I thought would work IRL, but was shut down sometime on reddit.

Second, a Sping loaded flipper. Can you tell the theme yet? I fancy spring-loaded stuff.
Image

Anyway, I hope to enjoy my time here. I can already tell I'm lower tier stuff.

Your rendering skills are pretty on point, and the designs are decent too: including some of the innards is always good to see

I am impressed with the level of detail you're putting into these. It's a great launching point, keep it up. =)

Ok, so Crash and Burn bot dump.

First Omnivore. Over discord I read its flat sides and weak armor would be a problem, but I find that as long as I can keep the jaws pointed towards the spinners, it should be fine... Not a winning competitor, but one I hope can cause an upset or 2.
Image

Second Flashback. Once again, its flat sides seem to be a problem. My original thought had the wheels much further upward. I moved them back for ease of creation, but this was a huge flaw in the invertibility. I can't be upsidedown without the jaw being open. Gonna have to redesign it probably.
Image

Third Time Limiter. I got board on my job once, so I thought of what it would be like if a spinner entered the first series of Robot Wars. This was what was imagined and the CADing of it just felt manditory.
Image

Finally Chase. I just made a chassis and stuck a weapon on it.

both your vertical spinners are p solid, especially chase. Omnivore's always gonna struggle to be competitive until you find a good way to not die to spinners, but it's cool and has the capability to beat wedges. Second Flashback is similar in design to my Middleweight Heidrun (https://i.imgur.com/vsSiVh4.jpg), and pretty much just needs what the other two mentioned to work fine both ways

Got to say mate, these designs are crazy good. I should probably watch out for these bots when I RP against you. Second Flashback is probably my fave due to the sleekness.
