Touching the Sides of Sizing Tool During Inspection


<R4> Robots must fit in the sizing box. At the start of each Match, the Robot must be able to satisfy the following constraints: a. Only be contacting the Floor and/or the Field Perimeter. b. Fit within an 11” x 19” (279.4mm x 482.6mm) area, bounded by the Starting Position. c. Be no taller than 15” from the Floor

When being sized, can a robot touch the sizing box walls or ceiling or the Robot Sizing Tool sides and still pass sizing inspection, or would this be considered out of size via R4? This has been a point of contention at some events for robots that are close to being out of size. Thank you.
