Where do the old combat robots die?Well, great parts box
Sky A corner of the workshop, where they waited to be disassembled and used for other projects. But occasionally, if the combat robots are really lucky, they will be pulled out again and resume normal work.The story is the same [Charles] We are talking about overhaul 1, a robot that appeared in combat form for the last time During the 2015 season Show.
After the success of the updated design (Overhaul 2 and Overhaul 3), it is amazing to see some work being poured into these old bones. It did not escape the parts bin unscathed because its wheels were lost by another design called sadbot. What is now “shuffle drive pods”, a cam-based system that allows robots to crawl. Watching them in the video after a break is fun, just make sure to turn down the volume first.It’s no wonder [Charles] It is planned to replace them with newly designed wheel modules.
In the game, these things suffered a lot of damage in the game, and the framework of overhaul 1 was still distorted and broken. Hydraulic jacks are the tool of choice because the damage is caused by the outside and needs to be pushed out from the inside. As proof of how these things were built, any old jack would not work, and a 20-ton device was purchased for this purpose. The front set of prongs (called pontoons) also bend inwards, requiring a chain and a connecting wire to pull them out.
The benefit of revisiting the project many years later is that the technology tends to move forward.We can imagine design work [Charles] The progress of a new set of wheel modules is much easier, and the quality of the parts (motors, drives, batteries, etc.) is much higher than when they were first manufactured five years ago. This is the first part of the overhaul series, and we will pay close attention to it.
