POLY the polycarbonate BOT for the ADVANCED CONSTRUCTOR...

This robot is made out of polycarbonate plastic that does not shatter and can easily be drilled and tapped with threads to accommodate small screws. Used here are 3mm stainless steel cap head engineering screws to give a snappy professional look.

WARNING: Be aware that other types of plastic like Perspex (TM) can be dangerous as they tend to shatter when drilled and are not easily workable.

Pretty high end skills are required to work with this material. I would recommend inexperienced constructors use MECCANO (TM) to prototype and even LEGO (TM).
