Sample Drivetrains

In this section, we compile several sample drivetrains which you can use as a starting point for your own designs. You should also check the gallery of robot designs in the Appendix.

goBILDA strafer chassis

Basic mecanum chassis by goBILDA. Simple and easy to build chassis, providing an excellent starting point for robots built from goBILDA parts.

goBILDA BeeLine Chassis

Basic 6 wheel drive chassis by goBILDA. Simple and easy to build chassis, providing an excellent starting point for robots built from goBILDA parts.

Strafer chassis with odometry

Modification of goBILDA chassis by FTC 9794 Wizards.exe, which adds odometry wheels. Also see their video tutorials: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OjNvAD350M4&list=PLICNg-rquurYgWAQGhu6iC0At75vgqFJp

REV Robotics 6 wheel drivetrain

Sample 6 wheel drivetrain built using REV kit.

AndyMark Tile Runner chassis

A universal chassis kit sold by AndyMark. It is available in several modifications: 6 wheel, mecanum, tank tread. It is expensive, but using provided 3d models as inspiration for your own drivetrain is free.

Wizards.exe 6 wheel drive chassis

Another design by FTC 9794 Wizards.exe. Combines custom side panels with Actobotics parts (gears, chain sprockets).

Custom drivetrain by FTC 14875 LightSpeed

This design uses goBILDA mecanum wheels, motors, and some channels combined with custom side plates. Take a look at this computer-generated render.

NX VANTAGE-H

Another custom drivetrain using goBILDA mecanum wheels, by redditor /u/nateless. Note that this design can be viewed but not downloaded—this is intentional; see his original reddit post.
