VUR12 and Pneumatic tubing

5 months ago

VUR12> Teams may utilize an unlimited amount of the following commercially available pneumatic components: Cylinders, actuators, valves, gauges, storage tanks, regulators, manifolds, and solenoids.

WIthout the mention of pneumaitc tubing this makes us limited to the normal pneumatic tubing rules and makes pneumatic components that use larger diameter tubing illegal. So my question is

-A. Is VexU limited to only 4mm pneumatic tubing?

-B.If the above answer is yes and VexU is limited to 4mm tubing, is VexU also limited to only black Tubing outlined in the linked Q&A

Part 2 The tag section only allows up to VUR9 so I can't tag it correctly with the proper VUR12 tag.


Answered by committee

-A. Is VexU limited to only 4mm pneumatic tubing?

No, VEX U Teams may use any commercially available pneumatic tubing, provided that no other rules are violated (namely, S1, VUR12-a, and VUR12-c). We will make sure to include this clarification in a future Game Manual update.
