Drawing the DIY Mountain from the Build Guide

 

I used Sketchup to draw all of the pieces from the DIY Mountain Build Guide that was published by USFirst.  As I was drawing the pieces, I noticed that the original plans were incorrect and were missing a couple of pieces where the Upper Mountain joins the 80 degree crossbar supports.  I fixed it by putting in a couple shim pieces as shown in the completed model.

I plan on modeling the robot too and importing both the model and the game field drawing into blender to test the model with physic settings turned on to simulate gravity.  When that is complete, I will post.
