Can we use tape to prevent a rope from fraying? It has no real advantages to the robot functions but it allows us to reuse rope and string for future things. If not would colored tape to match the robot's color theme make it a non functional decoration, or could we use 3d printed clips to prevent fraying?
tape to prevent rope fraying.
Answered by committee
Tape or 3D printed clips cannot be used to prevent a rope from fraying. As permitted in clause D of rule <R15>, however:
Fusing/melting the end of legal nylon rope/string (see <R7>R7e) to prevent fraying is permitted.
