Can you clarify how the 36" expansion will be measured? For example, last season one of my teams built a robot that expanded to 35" front to back to make sure that they were under the 36" rule. At one tournament, the robot was measured from the back corner diagonally across the robot. This dimension was 37.6" and they were sent back to the pits to fix the issue. Is this the correct procedure? I have created a model of two robots to help clarify.
- Is robot A or B legal? pdf
- Should the diagonal also consider from top to bottom? (the 38" dimension on robot B) Does this make robot B also out of dimension?
