English class, I think in my fifth year of high school, we had to write a haiku for some reason, and I wrote one which described my apathy for haikus. :v: Again, the teacher very much enjoyed it.

Perhaps we should collaborate.

Generally lego and knex based designs have limtations, and will be interpreted as having those limits, so getting drawings or CADs is usually ideal

People usually go for Sketchup, Solidworks, Tinkercad, or Rhino when starting out, although Rhino can be a bit hard to use at first

I figure I've been gone so long and there are so many new people that I actually should do an introduction. I'm John Garrison aka StarlessSoldier aka Omegaforce aka Omegarobotics and we've done this so many times I probably have other names I can't remember. I started on the Comedy Central forums with the other creators of this group around a decade and a half ago. I've participated in and even won a few fantasy tournaments. Ran my own tournament called Fantasy Fury. I've built a few antweights and I have a few more bots in the works. Anything else you want to know, just ask.
