8bean's DSL Showcase!
« on: January 25, 2018, 05:08:04 PM »
Hey everyone, I just picked up on DSL IRL and decided to give it a shot. My first bot, Purple Nurple is a huge HS Heavyweight that uses frenzy hammers becuase why not and is powered by a perm 132. It has an all Aluminum chassis driven by two fast NPC-T64's. This robot is my entry into GTMCS2.



My second IRL bot is Mustard. Mustard is a very poorly armored and designed Cruiserweight VS but I'm really inexperienced with them so I decided to give it a try. It has an all aluminum frame with polycarbonate panels and is driven by two fast NPC-T64's. The weapon is a beater bar disk powered by a perm 132. This is my entry into the Deathmatch tournament.



Also I suck at image editing so yeah.

Good to see you making a showcase so here's my advice
Purple Nurple's wheel guards needs refining, those frenzy hammer looks flimsy so you need to make your custom bar from extenders, other than that Its actually quite unique, I like it
Mustard seems like your first attempt at a extenderbot, looks decent but it needs stronger motor supports, make those wedges hinged since there usually not effective, upgrade the weapon disc since it will be destroyed by HS, Not bad though, reminds me of Ankle Biter.
Hope to see more

Nice bots here, the first of which beat me. looking at purple nurple, I think you should try to get a 6 mag in the bot instead of a perm. Then you can mold the body to the same width of the batteries and NPC fasts. as for the bar, frenzy hammers make it look different, but you can go with a 50x250 or longer bar with large typhoon teeth.

As for mustard. like neon said you'll need better support for the weapon. Overall I'd just try to make the chassis as compact as you can, this will save you weight in which you can apply better plating. Also hinge your wedges, they'll be much more effective.

Great bots overall, interested to see how you can improve and I certainly hope to get my revenge on Purple Nurple  ;)

General tip for showcases, try not to make your bot image so small, really makes it difficult to see the details.

Thank you so much for the feedback. I decided to work on Purple Nurple first and here's what I came up with.
 

 Now it is a little less wide which is better for weight saving but worse for reachability of the blade. I only used the tornadomer gearbox to keep the body skinny but I will probably change that once I attempt making a bar out of extenders. Other than that it is pretty much the same except for the polycarbonate side panels because I'm unsure on how to defend the wheels better without blowing all the weight.

Update on Purple Nurple. It has now reached V3!

I am really happy with how this bot turned out. It is extremely compact, especially with the blade.

I can't wait to see how it does in OW2

Also, I slapped this together for OW2 and called it Chicken Nugget.

Quickly put this together as well for OW2. Here's Mobile Wall! A rammer because there are too many spinners in the event.

All aluminum and barely polycarbonate ugh... dual Killdozer plows was a mistake

Had to update Mobile Wall so it could compete in OW2 so it has armor now but only one Killdozer plow

Also created a new Purple Nurple to compete in Wen's MW tournament.


It is probably going to need a lot of future refining in order to be semi competitive but I am happy with how it turned out.

Moblie Wall looks like a cool version on Tornado, I like it.
For MW Purple Nurple could you use the normal TWMRs as they'd fit in the shape better?

Haha. I think I lost my mind on this bot. Introducing Scatterbrain



Idk what I was even going for. It started out as a Root Canal ripoff and then turned into Chrome Fly and now this. Oh well... It was fun to build at least

I haven't posted on here in forever. I guess I'll dust off the cobwebs with my Robogames lineup for 2018!

I'm not a huge fan of how basically nothing is sufficiently supported.

Have these been accepted? Cuz yeah there's definitely not enough support on any of the spinners other than the SHW

Trust me I wasn't going for tryhard. I attempted to make a Hellachopper CW but instead got a very unstable mauler with french fry arms

Also about supports, the angles that I took the pictures at don't show the spinner support very well. Although, my AW and BW are pretty flimsy
