A Mech For The Road
This week on Machine Making, a new robot, and our first time building a mech.
This robot was a redesign from an early Mech that was made a couple of months ago. This initial design was built for a game engine, Gamemaker Studio 2. Unfortunately the design was not square, so as the robot moved through the world it actually crashed into wall and broke the collider scripts.
For the new design I wanted to add some detail to the legs and the main section. For this robot to work in a game engine the width of the robot needed the same as the length so when it turns it does not collide into walls, or objects.
This robot was pretty fun to make, please let us know if you have any questions!
