REV also offers a Mecanum Drivetrain Kit (REV-45-1877) which contains the parts needed to build this drivetrain using Belts and Pulleys to transmit motion from the motors to wheels, rather than Chain and Sprockets.
This design is a good starting point. However, modification maybe required to address the specific needs of the robot being designed.
The assembly of this drivetrain is broken into a few sections. This allows for a team of people to work on different tasks to complete the build quicker. Each section begins with what parts and the quantity of parts needed to complete the steps in that section. A list of required materials for all sections is listed below.
The Channel Drivetrain - Mecanum Upgrade is intended as an upgrade to the FTC Starter Kit V3. This drivetrain can be built out of the following kits:
When using the Mecanum Drivetrain Kit, REV recommends building the Mecanum Drivetrain Kit chassis as all the need parts are included with the kit. If you are looking to build this drivetrain you will need the following:
