These handles help you pick up and move your robots around easily. With our robot pushing 42 lbs, they have been a lifesaver this year.
They are modeled with T spline bodys in Fusion 360 to give them an ergonomic design. The handle size is comfortable for all the hand sizes on our team, of which there are quite a few.
The handles fit over actobotics pattern plates, so that the weight goes pretty much directly into those, instead of the 3D print taking the load.
The left handle features a hole for a flag to go into. The hole size should be big enough for all of the robot flags I have come across. The placement of the flag on the handle also helps forgetful coaches like myself to remember to give the flag back to the queuing tables after a match.
There is sometimes a problem with the one piece handles falling over when printing on the print bed. Our left handle printed fine upright on its flat side, but the right one failed 7 times in a row. Depending on your printer, you might need to print in two halves, instead both halves in one part. I have included both types in the files.
