It's Robot Fighting Time!

The Invention Studio hosted the Georgia Tech members of Chaos Corps as they cut the weapons for their Season 3 entry to ABC's Battlebots. We were particularly excited to support and learn from two former Prototyping Instructors - Dan Hammer (BSME 2013) and Matthew Carroll (now of the Montgomery Machining Mall). We had a great time learning about the process of designing such massive fighting machines and how it feels being on the set of a huge component of maker culture, while they set up and ran their cuts on our large waterjet.
