Description

Details

The VersaFrame is a construction system that allows teams to build an upper frame in whatever configuration they can imagine. Pre-drilled holes on a standard 1" pitch are designed to be used with #8 screws and 5/32" rivets, and can be easily drilled out for larger hardware. No need for precision fabrication capability - with just a saw and a drill, any team can build light-weight world-class frames.

VersaFrame extruded square tube is a custom thickness sized specifically for the FRC market. With 0.040" and 0.10" walls, the tube is lightweight and more than strong enough for most FRC applications. C-channel and angle pieces help to provide even more strength where it's needed most.

VersaFrame gussets provide for connections in many different configurations. In addition to a variety of angles commonly used in mechanical design, custom bearing and motor mounting gussets allow for seamless integration into designs incorporating rollers or other motion elements.

Note: 1" x 1" tubes are pre-drilled on all four faces, and 1" x 2" tubes are pre-drilled on the 1" faces with piloting notches on the 2" side.


VersaFrame Linear Elevator Parts

During Build Blitz 2015, two new parts were designed for that year's FRC game, Recycle Rush. The VersaFrame Roller Chain Mount is designed to bolt directly onto #25 or #35 chain, and the VersaFrame Linear Motion Gusset Kit helps enable a quick and simple sliding mechanism. While these parts were produced during Build Blitz to construct a linear elevator, it is possible to create a vast array of moving mechanisms with them. Download the STEP file from the Build Blitz 2015 Linear Elevator here.

(Note: Some McMaster parts required)
