<VUR2> Mining parts

3 months ago

<VUR2> allows teams to use official VEX Robotics products.

Is it permitted to render items from an official VEX part?

Example is extracting ball bearings from a VEX Pro radial bearing.
-Used in a team designed/manufactured part such as a 3d printed metric radial bearing
-Used in an aluminum draw slide extrusion permitted under &lt;VUR4&gt;

Hoping for an answer sooner than 3-4 weeks....
Answered by committee

We are not going to provide a blanket answer that will encompass all possible forms of "mined" parts and materials.

The specific examples in this post would be permitted. As Fabricated Parts, per VUR4, we would advise having strong documentation supporting these designs, per VUR5.
