That's some really slick CAD and printing work! What is the purpose of the fins at the back? They look like they will hold the wheels off the floor if the bot is flipped over, which happens all too frequently.

My theory is if flips on its roof the saw will be on the ground and help flip over,Did make fins removable incase doesn't work,All trail and error for me

Many chances were done to robot to get it to what i had in my head,end of the day i had over engineered most of it,Making chassis thinner and thinner to get weight right,end of the day didnt think would hold up too long!

Did have running robot just was overweight,Change in designs means waiting on more parts,having to wait for refunds for some that wernt what i ordered joys of ordering from China....

Ended up Designing a flipper somthing nice and basic to start with and work my way up from that,Top skin will be Titanium
