Since everyone else has one of these, I suppose I should too. Whatever drafts of robots that I make will be collected in this thread for safekeeping, posting in tournaments, and your viewing pleasure. Unfortunately most of them are TinkerCAD trash right now. However, I hope to get Rhino back once I have the cash for a new laptop. If I had to sum my approach and build philosophy, I guess it'd just be "realistic". I try to design things that have a bit of character, but that look like they could actually be built with pretty much no serious changes aside from cosmetic stuff. Comments, suggestions, and - especially - praise are most welcome.

Three bots so far are looking very well designed. Rainbow coloring on Revenant really makes it pop. If it were me, though, I'd give Excessive Force a slightly shorter and wider stance, to make it easier to keep the drum pointed at opponents and prevent them getting to your sides as easily. Goldschlager looks excellent on that front, maybe drop a couple of Weapon points to invest in Armour (deathspinners could be tricky at the moment) and it would be one very tough opponent.

Very nice starting point for you, though, and your build philosophy is something I can definitely get behind. =) Welcome to the boards, hopefully you stick around&#33;

Mentioned my plan for Goldschlager on discord. And Excessive Force...it's a "meh" design. I've replaced it in heavyweight with Eidolon, which is a bit better optimized. Pretty much an Electric Boogaloo knockoff.

Thx for the feedback and advice m8.

Bro...

This stuff is like... "Holy Fuck" - tier good, especially for a newbie. Eidolon is probably the nicest tinkerCAD render I've seen to date. I'm gonna have to step up my game. Out of curiosity, how did you make that plow?

Anyways, welcome to ARC. Hopefully you'll be around for a while and enjoy plenty of success.

I think you've redefined the phrase "good at TinkerCAD" with these. Looking forward to seeing your Rhino stuff if you ever get that happening&#33;
