Building Methods 2.O

Post by scioly2345 » May 6th, 2017, 11:38 am

So my coach mentioned to me something about some teams in my state who got the highest efficiencies making their own wood with a balsa stripper and using a 3D model to build on, can anyone give me any info tips or links on how to do any of this? :)

Yeah, read through what's been posted here. There's a lot of info about what you're wondering about, and other important things you probably haven't thought about. The compiled info here is, I believe, the most complete...anywhere.

When I built a tower for Science Olympiad, I used a jig. I don't know about the balsa stripping because I ordered the wood from http://www.specializedbalsa.com/product ... eighed.php. Here's an example of a jig built by one of the students on my district's high school team
