Big Blue Saw is proud to announce we're sponsoring a robot created by Paul Ventimiglia and his new team, Aptyx Designs, for the BattleBots robot fighting competition.
As a sponsor, Big Blue Saw waterjet cut the robot's aluminum frame based on the CAD drawings provided to us by Aptyx Designs.
The 2015 BattleBots competition will be televised starting on June 21. Until then everything remains TOP SECRET! We cannot even reveal the name of Paul's robot! We will say that we think it's pretty amazing
But here is a EXCLUSIVE sneak peek at the design of some of the waterjet cut 3/8" thick aluminum parts you'll see in this new powerful fighting robot:
