  • surgical tubing

    We were wondering if surgical tubing was allowed in the 2016-2017 FTC game.

    'tis allowed as per <RM01>:

    Examples of allowed post-processed materials are:
     Perforated sheet and diamond plate
     Injection molded parts
     3D printed parts
     Cable, string, rope, filament, etc.
     Springs of all types: compression, extension, torsion, surgical
    tubing, etc.
    It helps to read the game manual in its entirety as the vast majority of legality questions are addressed there.
